As I told my Twitter peeps, I was surprised with a very sensitive, touching gift from my friend Joanne last night. When I got to church for our mid-week service, I saw her, and she lit up. Now, you have to know Joanne. She's quite the giving person, and she enjoys it so! Now, there are people who give, and then there are people who give. Joanne gives. What I mean is she's one of those people who, out of the blue, will pop up with a gift that means something, that says something, actually. And what it says is, "I've been thinking about you, and I have something so special I want to give you." With Joanne it's never just, "Hey, I was at the mall and saw this shirt, so I bought it for you"--not that there's anything wrong with those kinds of gifts; they certainly have their place. But with Joanne it's just that extra touch of love, of time, of creativity that she puts into it that makes you feel special no matter what kind of day you're having--or days, as was the case with me.
