P received a message from the elderly couple who live opposite the house where his father lived.
P had kept in contact with them after his dad's death and has helped them out with odd jobs around the house from time to time.
Joan told P that, as they usually go away for the month of December to visit family, she wanted to give us something before they left.
We popped over to see them today and she presented me with two rather pretty handmade gifts...
The lights in the little house and trees change colour and flicker gently.
She makes these to be sold in the Age Concern charity shop.
What a kind and thoughtful gesture.
These will brighten up the Church House this Yuletide.
I really like those lights. Lovely gifts. How nice to have such an unexpected present . The Xmas spirit in full force 😊ReplyDelete
The kindness behind the gift makes it more special.Delete
What lovely gifts! You will enjoy them every year and it will always bring you happy memories of the givers!ReplyDelete
Very true. They are a lovely couple and we shall certainly remember them.Delete
How beautiful! ( PS: Sounds as if your 'chauffeur' provides quite a range of services.)ReplyDelete
He is very handy to have around, if just a tad grumpy sometimes!Delete
Great presents. The bottle is very appropriate with the church house. Something that can be on display all winter and not just Christmas time. Hand made is so much more special than something bought.ReplyDelete
The lights will certainly brighten up these long winter evenings.Delete
Very pretty, and that ship in a bottle thing - how did they.....?ReplyDelete
A very nice gesture and all the better because the gifts are handmade. Kindness isn't as rare as people sometimes make out.ReplyDelete
It is very much appreciated when it comes our way.Delete
Let your light shine….they’ll look good on an empty windowsillReplyDelete
I think I may have just the right spot....Delete
What a lovely gift. Love the little house and the Christmas trees.ReplyDelete
How lovely those are. Christmas lights are always cheering, and the home-made aspect makes them extra special gifts.ReplyDelete
I shall place them in the window to cheer up the dark evenings.Delete
How lovely and they'll look wonderful in the window!ReplyDelete
