I have been absolutely spoiled by gifts over these days of turning 40. Jeff has made sure I was celebrated long and hard-- by a host of loved friends and kin. It's been my most fun birthday ever for many, many reasons-- some of which I cannot put into words. One gift I received from Christy, a wise friend whom the Lord intertwined our lives in a most unique way, was the intriguing book, A Gift from the Sea by Anne Lindbergh. My friend, TJ, posted about it yesterday and I will not pretend I could say it any better. Enjoy.
