I received one of the most precious gifts yesterday from my BFF, Jill…. this darling little clutch purse for the wedding.
What is so special about it is what is on the inside.
From the outside, it is absolutely gorgeous!
But when I opened it up, I burst into tears.
The lining is made from a photo of hubby and me with our soon-to-be-groom son (taken at our oldest son’s wedding from 3 1/2 years ago!)
Isn’t this such a beautiful gift? What a wonderful idea for brides, bridesmaids, mothers of brides and grooms! Such a unique and personal gift. Jill ordered it from AngeeW’s ETSY shop.
And clever, beautiful, kind Jill, wrote this beautiful note.
I don’t know how I hit the lottery on most amazing BFF and friends, but I am so grateful! And what a wonderful reminder to all of us that it IS indeed what’s on the inside that counts.
Especially as we grow older and all the “lovely” saggy, wrinkly, things begin to happen we need not discuss, it is especially important to remember who we are on the inside.
No matter our age, gender, ethnicity, physical appearance – we all have the ability to exude a bright, loving aura. Have you ever noticed how a person who is maybe just average looking but has a bright, positive, happy, loving disposition seems so much more beautiful? And sometimes people who are especially physically attractive, but not kind people can become unattractive?
I love how Jill expresses it…. she sees a person’s “aura!”
Let’s make a focused effort this week (and always) to look for a person’s aura – and remember that it is what’s on the inside that counts.
Cheers & Hugs,
