A Gift Like No Other...

As we go through life we sometimes meet people that help us to become better individuals.  People that bring out the best in us and accept and love us for who we are.  Most of the time those people are our family members, but sometimes they come to us as strangers who become amazing friends. 

How amazing is this engraving?

I can't get over it! 

When I first moved to Rochester, I have to admit, I was a little nervous, I didn't know anyone except my boyfriend and I really wondered if I could make this place a home.  The first few months here were a little lonely and then I met a girl that lived next door who was also from New York City.  We chatted a bit down in the laundry room and made plans to hang out.  We discovered that we had a lot in common and slowly let our friendship develop.  It's been two years and counting now and since then she has become one of my very best friends.  

We discovered as our friendship evolved how insanely similar we were and how we had faced some of the exact same challenges in our life.  It soon became clear that us being neighbors and becoming great friends was not a coincidence.  God seemed to have a plan for us.  My life here has been so much happier with friends like Anjy and her boyfriend Jeff.  I thank God for sending them to me because they have truly helped me to become a better person.  

Yesterday, this BEAUTIFUL and truly unique cutting board was given to me as a gift from Anjy and Jeff.  I couldn't believe my eyes.  I mean I didn't even know you could engrave a cutting board!!! It was really shocked and so happy to be receiving something so thoughtful.  

and the back of the board has grips! 

You may think that the title of this post is about this cutting board and although its so unique and personalized, the gift that is like no other is my friendship with Anjy and Jeff.  Thank you both so much for this thoughtful gift, it will truly be put to good use! I love you both so very much!

  2. Hi Guavapineapple,

    Love that name by the way! You know I guess you and I think alike, b/c I did try to make it my banner and it didn't look very good, the picture became pixelated. Thanks for the suggestion tho!
