Simple gifts make me happy.

Friends came to our dinner party this week.

She handed me a small gift.

A small container with a blue lid.

I opened it carefully, not knowing what was inside.

Wrapped very carefully.

A beautiful heirloom tomato.

Perfect and beautiful (sometimes our imperfections show we still have flaws).

She knew what would make me happy.

I made 2 cheese pizzas with a yummy sauce, and garnished our lunch with this beautiful piece of fruit.

Cheese and tomato pizza.

Simple, yet with meaning.

Tasty, a reminder of the autumn season, and a “gift” of a good friend.
