Random acts of kindness......

and friends

They do belong in the same sentence, don't they?

Last week, I was the "victim" of such a thoughtful act from a friend, a fellow TDIPT sister.

This is not the first time I've fallen victim to such a display of thoughtfulness, (another friend recently was so generous as to send a Petsmart gift cert to help any animals in my area, another sent a piece of her own original artwork, which I treasure, another sent golf hats for my two guys, and there are more...) but certainly this one came out of nowhere and hit me like a tone of bricks! I was blind sided, in a sense.
Many of you know we are in the midst of a swap in our ebay group, so when I received a box last Friday, I thought it must be my swap box. WRONG.....nope it was not, and as soon as I opened it, the note right on top said..."Patty, this is not your swap box"..hehe! It was from my friend Julie of 7 crows hollow , she had heard I sprained my ankle the week before, and as her note would say, she felt I needed some Chocolate!
Inside the box was a little crock filled w/ some of her scrumptious homemade roca candy (sorry, it's g-o-n-e, so no picture). Some of you TDIPTers have been fortunate enough to have tried it, so you know just how special it is! My whole family loves it, and she sent such a generous amount, I was even able to share it w/ my sister who loves it too. Along w/ that was some flavored coffee, tea, and hot cocoa mix!
Because we were in the middle of the swap, I didn't want to post about it then, but now that I've received my wonderful swap, and given the much warranted kudos, I feel it's only right to give a proper thank you to my friend, for her extreme thoughtfulness.
Julie is a dear, and a very kind hearted soul.
Thank you friend, your thoughtfulness is appreciated.

That's what I love about the girls in TDIPT - they have the most generous hearts!
Hope the chocolate helped your And ONE of these days, I have GOT to try some of that Roca!

Awww Patty...I just know Jules Yummy Roca fixed your ankle right up. How very thoughtful of her...I hope you are "back on your feet" again soon! Hugs, Starla :)

Pssst, Patty you shouldn't have told us this! There'll probably be several more "sprains" if some of us think it will get us a package of Julie's Roca!

All joking aside, how thoughtful of Julie to do that.

Starla, you know it! I'm back on my feet jsut fine, like I've said not as bad as what it "sounded", i never knew an ankle could make that kind of noise!
Diane, lol...heck, I'm ready to take another spill, now where's that hole? The roca is wayyyy worth it ;)

LOL! Diane - maybe I'll get your name one of these days!!!
