Kitty has made each of her friends a Christmas gift. She sat quietly, with my sewing basket in her lap, and worked peacefully on her own. “What are you making?” I asked her after a while, curiosity getting the better of me. “Christmas gifts for my friends” she replied as she proudly held out a few platted strands of embroidery floss for me to see. “Oh,” I answered… “and what are they?”. She looked at me with that look that says don’t you know anything, Mom! and answered “Friendship bracelets!”
On closer inspection they were really quite beautiful and a lovely gift for a girl to make for her friends.
If I could, I would give each and every on of you a friendship bracelet too. I feel so honored to be a place you visit regularly and I thank you for your continued support. I am getting all mushy now because I mainly want to thank you for, firstly, nominating The Magic Onions for the Homeschool Post Blog Awards and for, secondly, voting for us… yes, friends, we won! Our new title is the Best Homeschool Method Blog of 2010! What a trip! You are amazing friends to have… thank you!
Merry blessing and magic,
