Follow Your Heart
One of my greatest treasures is my long-lasting friendships. I call them oak tree friends. Oak wood is strong and holds up to the test of time, beautifully displayed in an old piece of furniture with time worn lines. Laughter and hardship give us our beauty lines and strength to endure. If you are an oak tree friend, each of you can pick up where you left off even when years have passed the loyalty lasts.
Several of my dearest friends sent unexpected packages and I am sure you could hear me squeal when opening each bundle. Enclosed in a small box wrapped in colored tissue paper I found vintage lace, ribbons, and vintage handmade cloths. She followed her heart sending a little note of encouragement. A package of fabrics arrived one afternoon in the winter bringing sunshine into the dark of the day. She followed her heart sending delightful buttons. Another sent a box of vintage fabrics, buttons, and lace. She followed her heart and asked if she could send more to inspire. The marvelous part is they all coordinated with each other. When we follow our heart, amazing things transpire and not forgotten but treasured and shared.
The heart felt counsel of a friend
is a sweet as perfume and incense
