20130623-172407.jpg The year before last my dear friend sewed these pillowcases especially for me, with some of the lines from my favourite Joni Mitchell song: I want to knit you a sweater / I want to write you a love letter.

I cried like a baby the moment I saw them.

It really couldn't have been a sweeter or more lovely gesture. Putting fresh sheets on my bed this evening I smiled at how blessed I am to have so many loving and thoughtful friends in my corner of the world. Such a gift.
