About 4 years ago, I bought a Circle Journey Book to exchange with my niece. She lives far away and we seldom see each other. We sent it back and forth a few times, then she got busy with the life of a teenager and we haven't exchanged the book for about 2-1/2 years. Now we do things like text each other occasionally, and she came out to visit last summer, and I know she knows I love her, but I am always a bit wistful for more contact. Today, without any warning, I got the circle journey book back in the mail from this dear girl. It brightened my day so much. It is such a little thing, but her sweet gesture of searching through her room to find it and get it back into circulation meant so much. I can't wait to fill it up with my latest news and maybe a photo and a little treat and send it back to her. She works on the yearbook for her school and just got it submitted. How I can relate to that relief! I love that we have some similar interests. She is an absolutely wonderful girl and I hope we can continue to become better friends as she grows up.
