BLOG – GIFT DAY 193 friday flashback :: thank you diane

12 Jul

Today, I continue my CARD CRUSADE.
My little way of saying thank you and spreading some abundance.On this Flashback Friday I am reminded that I began this week without this:

And now we own it…. the boys couldn’t be more thrilled.

Never fear…. we have also acquired this little thrift store find and I can’t wait to show you what I have in store for it…. tomorrow!

Now, back to the Card Crusade.

Yesterday’s card was mailed to a woman who is so special I call her my Fairy Godmother.

She found me at a point in my life when I was lost. Going through a divorce, losing my job, my home, and my wardrobe all in five months!!

She was in her seventies at the time, I in my mid-thirties.  But she felt like one of the girls to me, a long lost friend, a soul sister.

I’ve learned so much from Diane Neal Emmons over these past five years of being her friend.

There’s something very special about having a girlfriend a few decades ahead of you in this thing called life.

There’s something special about having someone who can put things in perspective, someone who can give you hope through wisdom, and a little faith that there is a better life out there waiting for you.

Diane gave me all of these things. 
And more.

And you know what…

She was right.
Life only gets better.
You just have to wait for it to change, preferable with a friend, or Fairy Godmother by your side.

Even though I now live on the other side of the country, Diane continues to be by my side. She comments almost every day on this blog, sending a note of love and encouragement.

Thank you for being my friend, Diane, from the bottom of my heart.

Today’s card is going out to someone who is very special to me. She’s been a friend for over twenty-five years.

That’s your hint….

More tomorrow.
Lovemore {fearless}
Jamie
