Have you ever had someone make something by hand and gift it to you?

Do you remember the feeling of holding the object in your hands and absorbing its texture with your fingertips?

Do you recall how the color(s) saturated your vision while filling your soul with comfort?

Can you relive these feelings each time you come in contact with the gift?

If you can answer YES – you are blessed with a powerful and precious honor.

You were cherished.

Scarf in hand

         Several years ago a friend made a feathery colorful scarf and presented it to me as a holiday gift one cold winter day.

Since the gifting, the chilling weather is my signal to unpack the scarf; wind it around my neck; rub my face in its softness and once again activate the feeling of being cherished.

I am continually grateful for my friend.
