A Positively Pink Sister

I wonder sometimes if we really know each other through the channels of forums and on line networking. How much do we connect?

Well today I received a package that was so well thought out you would think it had come from someone who had known me my whole life.
At first I thought it was my Secret Sister package from the gift exchange we are doing at Make Mine Pink. It wasn't. It was a surprise gift of love from Carrie Noelle Garrett. We have become friends on the forums at Make Mine Pink. We encourage each other to stay the course and keep our visions clear.

This lovely journal arrived just when I needed it. A gift reminding me to keep my vision clear. It could not be more perfect for me.
I love 40's floral and the background is all my favorite colors. My name is printed on the front with the caption "Take the road less traveled"
A little high heel shoe medallion is above the name. I love high heel shoes even though I am six feet tall . I have a huge shoe fetish.
But what really got me was when I opened it up. It says on the inside cover..........

This is a quote from my article about my Mom.
It is something my Mom used to say to me when I would get discouraged. I have not really been able to cry since my Mom passed away. This made me cry. A good clean cry of release. A good cry of joy knowing that I will find new love in the world even though Mom is not with me any more she is sending angels like Carrie to keep the light on my path. I think we connect in amazing ways and know each other well. Heart to heart we create great friendships out here in cyber space.

Visit Noelle Garrett Designs at Make Mine Pink. These are one of a kind gifts that you won't find anywhere else. The details are priceless. Thank You my sweet Pink Sister I am not alone. I am on the road less traveled with you! Blessings, Lilli

Lilli, I'm so happy for you and for Carrie that you have become close friends through MMP. I am enjoying getting to know both of you too! Over the past two years I too have made lifelong friends with many ladies at MMP, true friendships! That was so sweet and thoughtful of Carrie to do that for you! You are both inspiring to all of us.

Hi Lilli,
I remember the day I read Carrie's blog and she had just received a box of lace and goodies from you. You are both generous and giving.
I saw I didn't have Lilli Blues Closet on my blog list. I added you today....

Hi Lilli,

What a commentary on pink sisterhood! Even though many of us have never met, there is a definite comaderie in our relationships. Personalities do show in our posts and communications, and Carrie's kind heart comes through in all she does.....and so does yours. Bravo to both of you!!

That is so nice. The journal is beautiful but the love blows it over the top.

Lilli, It is so true. I too have made so many friends here at MMP. I feel as though I am at home when I am here. I know I can make a post or write an email to anyone on MMP and they would be there for me in a flash.

I have grown so close to so many of you and am hoping to get to know each of newest members just as much.

I am happy for you and remember, you are not alone. There are many in this group that have lost their Mothers.

We are all there for you.

xo Cathy
