"... and the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." - Anais Nin
What a lucky girl I am! Yesterday when Mark picked me up at work he told me that there was a package waiting for me. I asked him if it was from my Mom and he said no. He said that it actually looked like I had sent it to myself because it was decorated like I do when I send mail out to people! (The hilarious thing is that he said the exact same thing when I got a package from Laini & Alexandra too!) Inside was the most gorgeous pillow that was hand-made by the very VERY talented Claudia! (Thank you, Claudia!!) I absolutely love it!!!
Then today when I was got home from work, Mark said that there was another package for me. He shook his head and laughed because AGAIN it was all decorated! I was doing my dance of joy and laughing as I opened a fabulous package from Jamie! Inside was a tin of Tim Horton's coffee. (Yes, Jamie, your timing was perfect!!) We were giggling about these wonderful friends that I have made and he said it's like a social experiment happened. We decided that it must have been that all of these kindred spirits were sent all over the world to see if they would be able to find each other again.
I sometimes wonder if I had started blogging at a different time if I would have still connected with the same people. There are so many bloggers out there, I could have ended up talking to any of them - but I like to think that we were all supposed to connect. I'm so glad I took that leap and started blogging when I did. I'm not exaggerating when I say that it has changed my life. xoox
