The Right Gift


Sometimes the right gift just jumps out and waves its arms... and that's what happened Saturday when I saw this carpenter's box with the name NANA on it. One of my dearest friends is "Nana" to five beautiful grandchildren. Now this friend is kind, true, a real sister in the spirit who always can be found in my corner, so naturally this had to come home with me. I could have saved it until her June birthday, until Easter... until St. Patrick's Day, at least... but nah... I'm taking it to her tomorrow after school. I have trouble with gifts like this. I can never wait. Maybe that's why I have learned to procrastinate holiday shopping??? Yeah, that's probably it... Have a great week, everyone. I'm up for a few more hours with grades to figure and post online. Yep... the quarter ended Friday; grades due Monday, and Daylight Savings Time figures in, as well... We gotta know we're "loved." ha!

I am the same way about gifts! I always love finding the PERFECT one and I can hardly wait (I usually don't) to give it. Lucky you for finding it! Your so kind to be thinking of your friend. :)

All the best,
Allison

I've been holding a fun little gift for my Mom until her birthday on Wednesday. Hope I still like it until then...lol.
I can be a bit fickle on the whole gift giving thing.

Oh gosh, I couldn't have passed this up either - I'm a nana too! And I'm bad about saving gifts too. I get soooo excited about the giving and I just can't wait.

It's great to have fun giving to special friends! You did good.

Hi Gayla! How sweet and kind you are to think of your friend this way! I have a hard time keeping gifts to myself too....that's why I am usually a last minute shopper, so I won't be tempted! ~ xoxo Joy
