Today I am grateful for bargain cards. The absolute coolest thing about writing this blog is all of the amazing people I’ve connected with. For a people person, like me, that means it’s Christmas every day!
Before I tell you the point of this post, please know that I will not ask for, nor do I expect you to do sometime similar. I’m just sharing because people are amazing and someone out there really does read what I write about. I get a kick out of that! Because most of my cyber and regular friends are a little whacky, like me, occasionally someone will send me something. Stop! Don’t feel guilty because you haven’t. I mean it! I’ll unfriend you if I even suspect you’re self-flagellating. I rarely send a thing to anyone because I’m lazy and cheap and I don’t feel guilty. So there you have it. Don’t hang out at your mailbox waiting.
Every so often a little package, or a puffy envelop, or a card will turn up. Himself will say, “Who do we know in. . .” Wisconsin, Georgia, Australia, New York, Missouri, etc. No clue. Not one.
But my bargain hunting friends know me. So when one or two of them are at a flea market and see weirdo sunglasses, which I love, they send them. Some are almost too weird for even me. Almost. Another sent me a knitted dish cloth when she saw I was making crocheted ones. Then there was a very cool ring that has an elastic band so it fits. One got me a subscription to a daily meditation book that I read every single morning. I don’t remember it past noon, but I read it. Maybe it’s sinking in and I don’t realize it. I hope so.
The latest surprise was a card. Yup, just a card, but it made my week. Why? Because the person who sent it is the sister of a good friend and I’ve never met her. She was at a thrift store poking through the really cheap bin of Hallmark cards and stumbled upon the one pictured. She thought of me and the daily gratitude blog. Wrote a note. Found out my address. And sent it! And that’s the best! BING! Heartprint!
