...dropped by to leave off an unexpected gift...
From Harry and David, a tower of delicious goodies: cheese, candies, chocolates, nuts, pears, and the mysterious "Moose Munch Confection..."
PARENTHETICAL THOUGHT WHILE BUSILY CHEWING: One of the pears, which proved to be perfectly ripe (and perfectly delicious) has vanished since the pictures were taken a short while ago.
This is a gift that will be treasured long after the last crumb of cheese and last truffle have been savored. Because of the giver, whose friendship has meant so much to me, it is precious.
I can't argue with the words on the little Harry and David card nestled under the ribbon: "...it shows just how much someone appreciates you."
They don't know the half of it; they don't know how much I appreciate her.
I hope she knows. In a minute, after I wipe away the moisture from my eyes and can see to punch a number in the phone, I'm going to tell her.
