My mailbox has been gifting me with a special surprise each week for the last five weeks. It all started with the apron that I was awarded. A letter and cd full of photos, a Valentine, lovely books and magazines, homemade soap and washrag, and a whole box of goodies later-my arms and heart are brimming.
Of course, it wasn't ACTUALLY the mailbox who has made my daily visits so enjoyable...it has been from the generosity and thoughtfulness of my dear friends from afar, both new and old.
Thank you, everyone, for your wonderful kindness to me. It might be fairly obvious as this blog has become near obsession for me, but since our move I have found myself trapped between two worlds. The old world, where all my friends and family still exist-and the new world, that I just can't seem to grasp since we are so often visiting the OLD world. :-)
My days are spent keeping that 'lonely' monster locked in the closet. Thankfully, I have children, so I have FAR less time to feel sorry for myself than I would otherwise.
All this to say, your letters and packages have been so wonderful to receive and I have cherished each one. Thank you for making these last few weeks so laden with special surprises!
Yesterday, one of the last things I had to do was finish the contents of this little package. Just a *little* sweet return-but I mustn't reveal the contents or the surprise will be ruined! And because I love my seals...I just had to include another photo of it!
