Amazingly Humbling Gift

This weekend, in Collierville, my mom, sister and I were doing our usual thing and going shopping/ going to eat lunch. We drove by the neighborhood of some of our very good friends Tommy and Lorrie Tubbs. I was asking my mom about how Lorrie has been feeling lately and my mom says, "Well, you're about to find out. We are going over there." I thought, "Well, ok."
We get to the door and we get great big hugs and she smells delicious as she always does. I love to hug Lorrie because she leaves her scent on you when she hugs you and you think of her the rest of the day. She looks at my mom and says, "Does she know why she's here?" Haha! I laughed and said, "What is going on?!" Lorrie then proceeds to take us upstairs to this AMAZING craft room. She has these two 3x8 foot tables pushed together and they are covered in these beautiful Christmas wreaths and candle holders. My sister walks up to this precious green and white wreath and says, "I like this one." Then Lorrie says, "It's yours!" Then she looks at me and says, "Lana, I made this one especially for you. Your mom told me you like candy and classic Christmas decorations." I was absolutely humbled and amazed at her generosity and it immediately brought me to tears. (And my mom and my sister because when we cry/ laugh it is contagious.) I wish I had the words to thank her properly. She spent countless hours making this beautiful wreath JUST FOR ME.

I was so touched- beyond words- that she would think of me and do something that special for me. Here is the picture!


  1. I LOVE that wreath. That is so special. I would have cried too.
