The Kindness of Friends

Hello Everyone!

One of my dear friends on Instagram Julia sent me a few items in the mail last week. I wanted to share with you the items she sent me :)
Side Note: Julia also sent me a card with a handwritten letter, but I typically don't share those type of personal things on social media.

I think giving a Bible to someone is one of best gifts a person can receive. The Bible is filled with stories of inspiration and hope that helps us get through life and it's challenges.

I love how you can color the illustrations in this Bible. You're able to get inspiration and color at
the same time. I've seen adult coloring books as a way to relieve stress and anxiety, but I like this idea much better. Julia even sent colored pencils (as seen in to my introduction picture)

This sun catcher is absolutely beautiful and it's my favorite color pink! I'm looking for the perfect place to hang this in my room.  

You know the one things I like about social media? It gives you a chance to interact with people who share your interests. This is one reason why I love Instagram and blogger so much! I met Julia a few months and Instagram has given us the opportunity to become great friends! She is such a beautiful person inside and out that loves her family and those around her. She is truly an example that good hearted people still exist in this world. I want to thank Julia again for sending over these items!

What a thoughtful gift from your friend, Pilar. I love those adult coloring books, and bought myself one awhile back (a fairy book). You will find it's relaxing and let's us be creative. The sun catcher is pretty, and what a beautiful Pink color.

Aww this post really touched my heart! Kindness is always important and such a blessing, and how sweet of Julia to send you just lovely gifts! That bible is so cool Pilar! I've seen the adult coloring books like that before, but I think that it's so amazing how it's inside the Bible. And that sun catcher is so gorgeous!
