Somebody Made Me Smile Today

So.. I'm sitting here minding my own business today. I've been cleaning the inside (yes, inside) of my cabinet doors and playing Sims in between

There's a knock on the door. I open it and see the mailman has left a package. I think hmm.. all the stuff I ordered from Amazon has already shown up.

I pick it up. It's addressed to me and has a return address I don't recognize. I also notice it has "Skittles" written on it. Curiouser and curiouser. I open the box and find....

A card that says, "Whatever life brings.."



The inside says, "I'm We're right there beside you.
That's what friends bloggers are for."
It's signed The Blogosphere.


And there was all this, too!!! A mouse pad, a game and
a bunch of.. ME! Skittles, I mean. And Starburst,
but we all know Skittles is so much better. Right?


I don't know who the sneaky sweet person is who did this.. but if you see something glowing in the sky from the direction of Michigan? It's my smile!!!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I must go eat some candy now....

Kidding. It really was a sweet thing to do..kudoos to whoever was thoughtful and kind enough to make some ones day.

That is a great surprise. I think it would have made my day, too.

What a great upper-lifter! And it couldn't have been sent to a better person either! Wonder if I leave my address here if your benefactor would send me some candy too -I do much prefer chocolate although it doesn't have to be Godiva or anything exclusive -just chocolate, maybe with some caramel in it too -or a cherry. Ok, I know, enough! But seriously Barb, that is such a sweet, loving gesture and really I do think it is a message that all of us put together would wish for you too! Yep -from "The Blogosphere!"

How wonderful!! I can't imagine anything better than surprise gifts. Whoever it is deserves a gift themselves, for makin' you feel good!
Gee, if someone (Who said Mike? Not I...) had gotten back to me w/ your address, you'd have gotten some flowers way back when you were having those medical issues. How did whoever that was get your address??? *pouting*

Lucy said...

wow, what a great little world we live in! but skits.. how on earth did they get your address? i wish It would have been me sending it to u! hope u solve the mystery so you can send her a hug.
xo
hey, you think if I post my address, gift will come to my door? I feared pervs would come, but candy! Now that is a nice intruder.
