Tuesday's Tribute..It's Time To Give Back

Be Sure to read to the bottom and see the pictures...hummm


Have you ever had a person in your life that you just know is a good person. A person that is sweet , down to earth and humble. Well I want to tell you a little about someone in my life like that...she is such a blessing. She has a way about her that is sometimes scary. She knows what I need when I do not even know. It all started years ago when I stumbled across her in a really large diet group. She latched onto Philip's story and was hooked to me. LOL. She has been in my corner everyday since day one. I have never doubted that ever. When I needed a sweet message in my email..there would be one from her. When I posted updates about Philip she would be there with a sweet encouraging post. When I would start to feel down and out..she would listen for a while and then gently or not so gently say enough and get up and let's get moving. When I got sick she was on that phone checking on me..and she would make me laugh even when it hurt. Then she would tell me things and would say if you say I said that I will swear you got it wrong cause you are on pain meds...Only a real friend can do that..and get away with it. One really special thing my dear friend does is share family stories with me. I LOVE to hear stories about her mama and daddy. What I would not of given to of grown up in her family. Oh and let's not forget the 8 am Saturday morning calls when I am sick on Chemo and I am sick as can be and she holds my hand over the phone and I end up laughing instead of crying...And only a friend like this feels like she might need to not post a comment cause people might thing she is being insensitive because we are so laid back with each other..Ha. I love it and I love her too. I hope she know it.

Now all that sounds wonderful right? Let me just show you the icing on the cake...Are you ready?

So this ugly brown box came and was by the door..

So I open the box and look what I see...
Can I get a Woo Hoo ...Gosh I LOVE this girl..and for those who are new..please read HERE to understand why this is so sweet. Now I think I can take a bath and smell yummy again. Ha Ha Emily...and NO you can not even touch the bow on the pretty blue box. But you can have the brown box. Love you..I really do.

Oh, that is the sweetest thing I've ever heard! Talk about a major picker-upper! Emily is going to be so jealous! You tell Miss Thang to keep her little hands OFF of your goods! What's yours is yours, right?! LOL!

That's a great surprise. Emily's gonna be so super sweet to you now, trying to get some pink.

I take it you never did find Emily's PINK? I still don't know what that is. I'll have to visit B&B just to check it out.

Sounds like you have a wonderful friend!

How can you have a down day when you have a friend like that? How wonderful for you! Now go and hid the "Pink" ..... it's all YOURS.

Wow, someone is sure going to be Fresh and Clean. Of course, I love the box since it's blue -- my favorite color. I'm so glad to hear that you shared with Emily.

Oh yeah, and it's "if you tell this I'm going to say you lied!"
