A Thoughtful Gift...

My favorite Christmas story is "The Gift Of The Magi." I mentioned this last year in a blog post. It is a favorite story for my dear friend Cindy Adkins too. Several weeks ago I received a package from Cindy and written on the package were the instructions, "Open on December 25th."  On Christmas morning I opened my package to find a truly thoughtful gift. I made a visit to Cindy's blog Whimsical Musings to find that Cindy had also posted a Christmas story about her gift to me. I love my journal and the thoughtfulness of the gift. Look at all the details Cindy used to tell the story. If you do not know the story here is a link to a U-Tube reading of the story that I thought was nicely done.

  1. Hi Linda,
    Oh that was so sweet of you to post this--and I want to thank you for all the beautiful Christmas surprises--You are such a good friend. I just couldn't wait for you to open up the journal. And more than anything, I am just so happy that it made its way to you safely!

  2. Hi Linda, I knew all about Cindys beautiful gift to you my friend and it is truly special. Now i have watched the whole video you posted, i understand why you love this story so much. its a beautiful story.
    I hope your christmas was a happy one and wishing you a wonderful 2012 Peace,health and happiness!
    Hugs June xxxxx

  3. What a lovely story. :) How sweet of your friend to gift you with something so meaningful. Happy Holidays to you!!!


  4. A beautiful piece Linda! How lucky you are and how clever is Cindy! I'm listening to the video while I type this but will have to come back to watch the rest! DH has just come home and it's lunch time.
    So glad you had a lovely Christmas! xxx

  5. Hi Linda
    Thank you for sharing this beautiful and thoughtful gift. Any of who know Cindy know that she is such a caring woman.
    I want to thank you for visiting my Blog and your recent comment on my Ophelia card. I replied to your comment over there but wanted to tell you that I use lots of scraps on my work, this piece of text being exactly that. Looking at it I would say it is from Oxford Impressions' Beloved plate. Wanting to provide you with the link I visited their on-line store but it looks as though the set might be discontinued (such a pity as it is gorgeous) as I cannot source it. Hero Arts do a lovely French Script stamp. Like you I stamp on ribbon, binding, etc so the size of text is all important. Wish I could be more helpful to you.
    Linda, the New Year is approaching and I would like to wish you all the very best for 2012 and to say thank you for being a friend of my Blog.
    Warmest Wishes
