a ways back, when mom was here, we'd seriously misunderestimated the task at hand and so mom said that she might be able to stay a week or so longer if she could have my dad send her prescription info so she could get her meds. well, when i got the mail a few days later, she had not one package, but two. mom got mail at this address way before me.
so earlier today, i went out to get the mail after hauling the trash can to the shoulder for tomorrow's pickup. and there was a pastel lavender envelope addressed to ME!! ooooooooooooh, aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah; to further savor the joy of receiving real mail, i did what i always do in such a case~~i made myself go thru all the other mail first (in this case, just a few catalogs; i don't open other people's mail, not even jert's). then i held it up and felt all along it, smoothing my fingers over the thickness of the card within. i sniffed it, and examined it, flipping it over and then RIPPED the seal open and pulled out the wonderful loving thoughts that someone sent me, me!
and then i got all teary and sappy and sniffly and giggly and all that squishy good-girly-girl stuff. thanks so very much, baby. i love you for so many reasons, and this is just one!!
