I got the book via amazon
long-awaited, here at last!
when it arrived, I smiled so big
I limp, I know, but to the gate I dashed.
So excited to finally see
the book with a nest on its cover
that familiar image that I see online
the pages that I turn now, real paper!
the handwriting that I have come to love
the chapter titles she wrote
I skimmed and turned the pages
I am sure that soon there's a lot to quote.
the note the sender wrote
the message I will always treasure
a blessed token of friendship
that even the passing of time can't measure.
my friend T, from across the seas
my sister in Christ, a fellow blogger
my big thanks for this "one thousand gifts"
God bless your heart, my dear sister!
