(Friends Journal page - 2008)
I made the bookmarks from scraps of scrapbook paper - no great works of art here ! I thought about making them only about half an hour before leaving this morning. I think I will make myself a nicer, more arty batch for my next book browsing time using the Queen of Arts stamps I carved. Anyway, I plopped 10 of them in my purse before I left home and then stuck them in random books throughout the store as Lois and I browsed.
There is something so fun in leaving little messages of care for unknown people to find! I really love it, as anyone who reads my blog knows ! Harmless, doesn't damage goods in any way and I know it must make the day of anyone who find such a treasure along the way ! There is really truth to that "It is better to give than to receive" thing. Don't get me wrong - I love the gifties I receive too ! But giving out little extra bits of love fills my heart in a really special way... it kind of feels like my purpose here in this beautiful world, I guess...
Anyway, I encourage you to give a little bit whenever you have a chance to, because believe me, it will come back to you tenfold before you know it !
Happy Tuesday, and tell a friend you heart them, will ya !
