Everyone should have a friend like Leah.  Leah and I met through my job about four years ago, and after losing touch for two years, we were reunited and have had a special bond since.  She is kindhearted and encouraging, and willing to give you the necklace off her neck.

I had lunch with Leah on Saturday, and the whole time I was admiring the bluebird necklace she wore.  As we were about to leave, I said something about it, asking where she got it in hopes of buying one of my own.  As is often the case with these things, it wasn’t available anywhere because Leah had made it herself.  But, without a moment’s hesitation, she took it off and offered it to me.  The necklace has a sweet family story behind it, which Leah shared with me as she insisted that I take it. Her generosity and willingness to share a part of her family’s history with me was very special, and I’ll think of her every time I wear this adorable bluebird.
