Special friends only come along once in a lifetime. I am blessed to have the best special friend in the world. According to Merriam Webster's Dictionary a friend is a person who you like and enjoy being with. A person who helps or supports someone. A favored companion. These are good descriptions but the meaning of a true friend goes much deeper. It is two people who bond and connect through life, helping each other cope with the good and bad. It's that person you can honestly tell anything to and she won't judge you, belittle you or think you're crazy. She has the biggest shoulder you can cry on and the biggest heart that holds all your joys and failures. As I said, a once in a lifetime friend.
I have one. She is so good to me that I can't stand it sometimes. She would say, "It works both ways." And it does. I've been there for her too. But isn't it funny that all we think about is the special things our friend does for us? Recently, my friend did just that. She sent me coffee! Now you say, what! Coffee. That's not anything special. But you see, it wasn't just coffee. It was a part of her. Someone I love. Someone I miss. So, I made a card to thank her.
Very appropriate I thought.
I used a cute new stamp set from Lawn Fawn called Love You A Latte. It has different cups, complete with different faces, a saucer, spoon and several sentiments. And, of course, matching dies. That makes it so easy to stamp and cut out the elements you choose. My friend loves blue so of course I wanted to use that color. I love the argyle paper with the blue pattern paper. It looks so clean and fresh.
I know she loved the card but I also know she FELT the love in the card. That's why I take the time to make cards. I hope I can transfer some of the love I feel to the person I send my cards to. Like the slogan at Hallmark. "When you care enough to send the very best." K, you are the BEST!
