Today I gave a gift to my mother-in-law, I've posted a picture of it below. Earlier this summer I cut leaves of two plans that she loved and dried them with making her some kind of gift in mind. She loves Hostas and found a unique variety of Coleus plants that she picked out to match the paint on our porch.
I'm not going to see her on Christmas day as she will be out of the country so I stopped by her place today to give her the gift and she absolutely loved it. She has been sick for the last week, which is the first time in about 7 years, so it was so nice to see her face light up when she recognized the framed leaves.
Today I also received several gifts:
1.) An amazing potluck lunch at my church 2.)A compliment and meaningful conversation about the joys of rollerblading from a stranger that I probably would have typically avoided had I not been stuck in front of him in the grocery store 3.) A few hugs from one of the warmest, kindest, and best smelling women I know and I haven't seen lately
