My friend, Jakki!


It’s Monday morning, the first meeting of the week is about to start and in walks Jakki. Handmade felt Valentine pins overflow from the basket she carries.  Instant sunshine!

I know we were meant to be friends.

But oh no, it didn’t stop there! She proceeded to give us each a beautifully wrapped Valentine gift with a handmade card to boot. Each one made specifically for the recipient.

Not only did she place dots around the heart, but look how she outlined each one with a different color. Just getting this card made me feel so special!

Just when I thought the fun was over, she pulled out another handmade gift for each of us!

A handmade tablecloth to use for our classroom parties. The details in her work are incredible. Each stitch perfectly sewn with love for her friends. Jakki is one of the most thoughtful people I know. Genuinely interested in what you are doing.  Always finding things along her way that you might like. Quietly blessing everyone around her.

Thanks for being my friend, Jakki!

Love,

Beth
