Surprise! A brown padded envelope from Amazon arrives in the mail addressed to ME! What?Scanning my brain, I think to myself, I didn’t order anything. What could this be? My dear friend sent me this book on her birthday! Yes, it came to me on her birthday!! The title is the sweetest too, you’ll have to read my friends story on The Dreaming Tree to fully understand. This woman has many gifts, one is to make people feel sincerely special. (To see her other amazing gifts, you must check out her blog!)
The kids had arrived home so I was not able to jump into the book right away. The following few nights I stayed up late reading one story after the next. It brought back so many memories, some were sad but most were funny. I belly laughed as I read Melanie’s life stories.
I have learned so much about friendship through my friend, Elayne. She has inspired me in many ways and has reminded me how important friendship is, we need each other. We need women in our lives that lift us up and encourage us. Do not take friendships for granted.
After finishing this book, marking it with a giant coffee spill right on the front cover, I decided it’s going on a journey to hopefully inspire others or at least make them laugh! The book is going to a smart, kind and loving friend of mine. I will ask her to do the same by passing it on to a friend and so on. It will be interesting to see the travels of this book & if or when it will make it back to Alabama. Hopefully, friends of friends will be as delighted as I was to receive it. If that is you, please let me know by leaving me a comment with the whereabouts of the book. Happy reading and happy sharing. Now go bless someone today with an act or word of kindness!
