|Thoughtful ornament made for me, sent unexpectedly last year|
by Ella Wilson (see link on her name in poem)
an unforeseen deed
filled with thoughtfulness
expressed, in times of need;
whether we know it or not,
planting a reciprocal seed
in a person's sweet spot.
Take for instance
the cardinal above,
made for me, the essence
of Ella's talent and pure love.
Another time, a dear friend,
Linda (who lives in Germany),
sent me fine chocolates (a sin)
to share with family.
A simple inquiry
of how I really feel,
a smile or a hug for me~
all reminders kindness heals.
This poem is written for Fiona Robyn's blogsplash which accompanies the release of her novel, Small Kindnesses (available free today,11/27/12).

I sent you the chocolates because I love you. Sweets for a sweet person. Glad you enjoyed them.
Nice cardinal gift, too.
Surprise gifts are the best. It is so much fun sending/giving them and seeing the joy it brings. It's fun to do it anonymously, too (Secret Santa). :-)
How very sweet! :-)
