” A friend is one to whom one may pour out all the contents of one’s heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that the gentlest of hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.”
– Arabian Proverb
I searched high & low for a poem, quote or proverb that came close to expressing how I feel about having Sheila as my friend(I am in no way as eloquent as she). The proverb above was as close as I could get and it still does not give her the praise she deserves. I am so honored to call her my friend and look forward to continuing this journey with her.
In celebration of friendship and perhaps a hint of things to come, we wanted to offer a giveaway full of fun stuff to ring in the New Year. One person will win the package shown above, which includes a fabric bucket filled with 3 lavender-scented glycerin soaps, 2 ounces of lavender essential oil and a tiny “love” banner. To be entered into the giveaway, leave a comment. For a second chance to win, visit Sheila’s blog at http://www.sureastheworld.com and leave a comment over there as well. Comments will close on both blogs at midnight December 31, 2012. We will announce the winner, chosen at random, on January 2, 2013. Good luck to everyone!
