A couple years ago, I was browsing one of my favorite websites, Etsy.com and stumbled across what I feel is the perfect “just because” gift to give your best friend. Remember those “broken” pendant necklaces from childhood which when you fit them together read BEST FRIENDS? Remember how special you felt walking with your BFF arm and arm across the playground, each proudly wearing one half of the necklace? I had stumbled upon a more grown-up, classy, stylish version of this necklace. There was no way I could pass this find up. It was fabulous.
Alicia was living in California at the time, so I packaged up the BE FRI half, handed it over to the UPS guy and sat back, twiddling my thumbs, waiting for it to arrive on her doorstep. My, oh, my did it take everything out of me not to say something to her about the package that was on its way. Alicia is usually the one I go to when I have some kind of juicy news to tell. Ahh, it was torture! Thankfully it only lasted a few days. She called me immediately after opening it. I wish I could have been ther to see her open it but I could hear the surprise and joy in her voice. She loved it! While we were on the phone together, Alicia had one sweet little side conversation with her little daughter . She told her how much she wished that she would have a special best friend in her life when she is our age. Her daugher then asked in her cute, tiny melodic voice if she doesn’t have a best friend, can she borrow her mom’s. Talk about breaking my heart with sweetness! Alicia’s daughter is already such a kind, thoughtful, and just plain adorable young girl, I can only imagine the amazing young woman she will one day become.
