~ The Spirit of Love ~

The Art of Encouragement
the art of creating community
and celebrating friendship....
it is a way of living that seeks to bless
every person
we meet
-candy paull
This week I have been blessed beyond words
by a wonderful friend
who knows the
true meaning of Encouragement
This lovely package arrived in the mail from
Janet...her lovely blog French Blue

....a wee little french creamer from a Paris flea market
.....some amazing Marie Antoinette tea from Laduree
{in such a lovely pale pink box..heaven}

and some sweets for my "sweet tooth"
{Janet remembered my sweet tooth xoxoo}
all for me ...just because

What a blessing to bless others
a true gift from above

"You will find as you look back upon your life
that the moments when you have really lived
are the moments when you have
done things in the spirit of love."
H. Drummond
