In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “By Hand.”
Perhaps the best and most unexpected gift I ever received was from my friend Marie. We are a group of friends who often came for potlucks to my place. There were never enough chairs or plates but we made do with what we had and it was perfect every time. So when she surprised me with a handcrafted set of matching plates for 6 people. The time and creativity that went into this gift makes it the best present I’ve ever received.
