Old/New Friendships

Friendship without self-interest is one of the rare and beautiful things of life.  James F. Byrnes

Sometimes I can't help but smile at the generosity of people around us.  Since Ella was born, we have been showered with unexpected gifts from friends and family.

This afternoon, Ella received two surprise packages:   one from a young--yet old friend who stopped by to visit...

Thanks was great to see you and Kelsi this afternoon!
As you can see, the cookie was a hit!
The second package arrived via mail from Corpus Christi and came from two new friends (mom and daughter) who recently started following my blog...

Ahh...a colorful Dora backpack filled with wonderful music CDs and learning DVDs.   Perfect for our overnight stay with Nawnie tomorrow night.

Thanks Kimberly and Olivia for a very kind, generous, and unexpected surprise package.  We look forward to meeting you both soon!  Here's to a lifetime of Ella/Olivia play dates;).
