My Favorite Gift of All Time

I can’t wait for FHE tonight!  We are meeting with grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins for a night of Tortellini Soup, a Christmas message, caroling, and hot chocolate! 
Not only that, can I just say out loud how excited I am to have the whole week to do nothing but play with my family??  I’m so happy that school is out!  Just about as happy as I am when school starts back up again!  
I thought I would share one of my favorite gifts of all time.  It was actually a 40th birthday present from my dear friend and former college roommate, Sheri.  It meant so much to me and I treasure it still, to this day.  I read it often because it carries so many great memories. 
I guess the reason I love it so much is because it is so heartfelt, and was meant especially for me. Not like a box of chocolates that you could give out to your 5 best friends, this was specifically written just for me.

It is titled “40 Reasons Why It Is SWEET To Know You”, in a simple jar filled with sweet treats.
But the magic is in the 40 reasons. 

She carefully thought of 40 things, anything from fun memories, to sweet compliments!

Honestly…. I was surprised she could think of so many things!  
Great friend.

I love it so much that I have copied the idea myself.  I made one for my sweet mother in law for her 80th birthday.  Can you imagine?  Thinking of 80 reasons why you love someone?
 Truth:  it wasn’t hard.
I have the best mother in law.  Everyone loves her!

Great gift idea… if you need a last minute gift.  But give yourself enough time to reminisce!  You will surely brighten somebody’s life with this!  Reading this all over again while posting about it, reminds me just how much my dear friend means to me!!!

Go and warm some hearts!
