Friends: The Special Touches

I wanted to take the time to share a special day that touched my life. Last Friday Marsha Baker (The Better Baker) and I met for lunch (almost a four hour lunch) to chat about creating cookbooks, our personal lives, our future plans, and just every day stuff.

Marsha and I are fellow bloggers, and we live only 30 minutes away from each other. A half way lunch meeting is not at all out of the question.

Marsha came bearing gifts. And sorry Marsha, the German Chocolate Cake Bars didn't make the picture because Sean and I ate them.

Make sure you keep an eye on The Better Baker blog, she will be posting the recipe for the German Chocolate Cake Bars soon. That is one recipe that you will have to snag. They are out of this world delicious.

When I got home from our meeting last Friday, and I started emptying the bag of gifts, I took the time to study each item. I love receiving gifts, but the things that stood out the most for me was the special personalized things that Marsha did.

She added my name to a bookmark (personalized it).

She wrote in our meeting date on a pocket calendar.

She gave me a personalized pen and some spiritual reading.

Marsha's personalized touches, added to the gift bag, touched my heart so deeply.

What a great friend I have found. And I am blessed...

And look, my very first apron. Does it matter that there is a Christmas tree on it? Heavens no!! I will wear this every time I cook, and I will be thinking of Marsha.

Thank God for dear friends.

"Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:4
