My daughter can jeer all she wants about "mama's blog friends" but you guys know how real it is. No matter what I write. No matter what I whine about, cheer about, photograph or misspell, you comment back. One of you. Someone. Sometimes the same one for each post, sometime a random single response, sometimes every other. Whatever, whenever, someone pats me on the back.
And we all get it. And need it and it is real.
Ergo a new friend from my blog who I comment back and forth with and also email. She asked for my address, would I be comfortable giving it to her? I did and also wrote that I probably shouldn't because I should refuse anything nice she may do. But I sent my address. And I let her do something nice.
And this is what she did.
She sent a box.
I knew it was pretty rare so of course I photographed each step because I wanted to share it with the one who would understand and appreciate it most.
She sent a note. I will keep the content private. But it was dear, very dear.
And there was a box. This was decorated by her own hands.
And inside a little pillow bearing the message 'good spring'.
For some reason so many of us, so many women, with all that we have in our lives... our home, job, children, partners, parents, friends, holidays, grocery shopping, hair to do, meals to cook, dishes and washing....
Somehow that isn't enough.
Somehow that isn't enough and we need each other. We reach out to the unknown and connect. And it is so special.
Thank you Cheryl.
Thank you, Cheryl, for your comments, your emails, your support, your empathy, your kindess, your time and your gift.
