Well we had our Valeninte Tea today and I gave out my "special" gift. Like I said I my last post, a lot of the ladies bring little trickets to share with each other. And today was no differnet!!
There were ten of us today and we had a wonderful time. The food was great and the company even better. As people arrived they put their tea cups at their place and the food they brought to share on the buffet.
I placed the "special" gift I brought for each of us at our place setting. We all opened them together.
I had been saving the Altoid boxes for awhile just in case I needed them and today they sure came in handy.
Inside there was a charm bracelet that I had made. Well, it wasn't like I made the charm or the bracelet... I picked out the heart charm and then used a straight wire type pin to secure it to the bracelet.
One of our original members of our group stopped coming to tea about a year ago. She has Alzheimers. She is quite young, but very sick. I see her every couple of weeks, and she still knows who I am, but it is almost impossible to carry on a conversation with her. And she knows it. Alzheimers... what a horrible disease!
I will drop off her charm bracelet on Tuesday when I take her Valentine to her. I know she will love it! She will always be a part of group!!
Once again I am reminded of how lucky I am...our ladies group was only together for about two hours or so, but it's just long enough...We reminisce, take a quick poll on how many watch Downton Abbey, and share pictures of grandchildren.
Life is good.
