Just before Christmas, I heard from a friend from high school. He had found some old photos of my family when my brother and I were kids. I told him I would love them. What a surprise came in that envelope from him.
Above you see a wine holder which seems to be quite popular right now. The best part of this gift is that it is made out of black walnut...my favorite wood, and my friend, Ron, handcrafted this himself. Okay, I will be honest. When I first saw this, I was baffled for about 15 minutes as to what it was. Then it hit me!! Ron, I love this and will treasure it always.
I do have to give credit to Facebook for connecting me with Ron again. We worked together in high school on my yearbook, and then as it happens, I married and moved again from the home town, and lost track of these old friends. Ron befriended me on Facebook and we have been in touch ever since. So Ron, thank you so much for thinking of me and for such a beautiful gift. I love it and will treasure it. You are special.
