A Little Bag of Happiness

I was given these as a gift by a lovely friend recently - they came in a pretty little bag called A Little Bag of Happiness.


What are you thinking - not much of a gift?  A penny, a marble, an elastic band and a piece of eraser - what kind of a gift is that?  Well, it came with a lovely little card that says it all.


"We all have those days when we feel a little blue, this bag has things inside for you
An eraser so your mistakes can disappear


A coin so you never have to say "I'm broke"
A marble in case someone says you've lost yours


A rubber band to stretch yourself beyond limits"


A very thoughtful and lovely gift, I'm sure you will agree.

Love, Liz

What an amazing gift, so thoughtful. It isn't always about the monetary value of a gift that makes it spectacular.

I must admit, when I saw the picture I did wonder why on earth they gave you such strange gifts! But when you read the note, it's very sweet. What thoughtful friends you have xx
