DELIVERED LOVE

These are my most FAVORITE college friends.  They were all single and I was married when we met.  They were big ball players.  Once they learned I played ball (and was pretty good) we were instant friends.  Today a package was delivered to my doorstep...a package of LOVE!  I LOVE the fact that Leslie made these mini replicas of themselves and glued them onto candy bars.  FUNNY!  (and so cute)  I LOVE chocolate, but not just any chocolate.  And I'm not a fan of the typical 'boxed' chocolates.  But man...THESE.  These are SO GOOD!  A local Rexburg treat.  And the Willow figurine made me cry.  It's perfect.  It's called "Guardian Angel".  I was teary because this is the way that I always held Ben in my lap.  Even when he was almost too big for my lap.  They also included a butterfly necklace to remind me of the dream that a dear friend of mine told about Ben here on the blog.  THANK YOU!   My heart is smiling BIG today.  People have been so kind and so thoughtful during this past month.  I feel so loved.  Ben was so loved.  That's why he lived for 8 miraculous years.  LOVE.  And love is what has sustained me through my grief and will continue to carry me through this life until I can be with him again.  Thank you for loving me and thank you for loving my family.

What an amazing group of friends! I love the chocolates with their faces on them. The Willow Tree is ideal! I collect those, and just love them. And the butterfly necklace ... it was all so thoughtful!

You have some very special friends!!! Florence's chocolates are hands down the BEST!! Trust me, I have had many varietes and brands of chocolate in my live--probably too many! Luckily, the Idaho Falls Deseret Book sells them, but I'd still be willing to drive 20 mins. to Rexburg to get them. My fav: milk chocolate vanilla cream...but you can't go wrong with any of them.
I think of you and your family often! Hoping you are having a good day!

What great friends! I wonder whether we played against each other at Ricks? I used to play a bit there too - how funny!
Oh and you have to try some Australian chocolate :)
