My Gift

I received advance greetings from friends and I do appreciate them remembering me. You know who you are. Thank you!

My first birthday gift arrived today. I never expected that the pesky guy knocking on our gate was carrying an Amazon delivery package for me. Yes, for me! My heart was beating as I scanned the sticker outside and my mind was also busy guessing who sent this pretty heavy package for me. I kept mumbling "It's a book... it feels like a book... I can sense it's a book... darn! How the heck do I open this?!" I am normally a very patient person and I never thought I'd fumble just opening the package. Finally I did open it and saw the book I know I'll never get to buy here. I didn't open the book yet coz I know there's almost always a note. I read the name and I knew. Deep inside, I knew it was from you.

When minutes turn to days and years
When mountains fall, I'll still be here

(lyrics from Carrie Underwood's "Inside Your Heaven")

tired and sleepy but happy

Thank you very much! We're miles apart yet I value the friendship we've always shared. Call me selfish but you know what would be a better gift? Seeing YOU knocking on my gate. I would love to hang out with you again! Miss you!

I am happy to be a recipient of one of the best gifts in life-- the gift of friendship from people who have offered me their time, thoughts, smiles, hugs and a part of their lives. Thank you!
