The Generosity of Strangers

GP is on Mail watch. He has four CD's on order from Amazon and he is diligent in his "mail carrier watch". He checks the mail as soon as he gets up. He will open the back door for Pepper the Puppy Dog and then just go straight to the front door to check the mailbox. It's kind of funny because last I checked our mail has never been delivered before lunchtime, but he checks it just the same. Anyway, he checks the mail each and every time we go out, before we leave, and when we come back... I tell you, he's good! LOL!
So yesterday there was a little parcel in the box and I heard him say,"wait a second, there's something here" and a minute later he's walking towards the car empty handed. I'm coming out right behind him and ask, "what is it?" to which he says,"oh nothing, it's just for you!" like it's junk mail or a bill.
Hello! I HAVE A PARCEL? Oh I was so excited, so I go back to the box and dig it out and what do you know, it's really for me.
Look at the little treasure trove I received from Carrie from A Passion for Applique who felt I needed a little cheering up and sent me a wonderful wool bundle and a gorgeous little bag with a FOB that her daughter Christine made, along with a card. I was so surprised and humbled that anyone would do something so nice, just because. The generosity of strangers never ceases to amaze me. Thanks so much Carrie, you brought some much needed sunshine to my still very wet week! B=)
