I haven't been to my mailbox for a few days and much to my surprise I had two packages.

One package was from a friend in Missoula, MT who I talk to via email and postcards. I think she is the only person I know that uses postcards and for that reason alone makes her special. We worked together at a publishing company. She is a very talented lady with a big heart. Whenever I see a post card in the mailbox it brings a smile to my's always nice to receive news from a friend.

The other package was from the "GOOD MAIL QUEEN", Jill. She and I just reunited after years and years. We were friends in high school. She is now my blogging mentor (I think I'm on question 148) as well as a great friend. After reading her blog (I felt like a stalker...) I realize how much we have in common and I was really missing out on a great person. It has only been a month since we started talking but each day I look forward to reading her blog and receiving her comments on mine. She is a genuine person who enriches many lives. (Are you blushing yet?)

I was a giddy little girl running up the path towards the mobe anxious to open my packages.... books,jam, candy, Hello Kitty stuff, a homemade c.d. and more! What a thoughtful thing for both of them to do. I appreciate it more than I can express at this time. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart all the way down to my toes.

*This is also a prefect opportunity to thank my mom for alllllll the care packages. You know someone loves you when they send you razors. (I hate to pay for razors more than anything. Every year I ask for them at Christmas...whenever I am asked what I need it is always razors.) My mom is so loving, kind and thoughtful and never expects anything in return. I would give you the world if I could but you have my love!

That's a seriously great "good mail" day! Woohoo for you! I like sending good mail just as much as I like receiving it. I seriously get giddy as I calculate the days it will take to get there and as I imagine them opening it up. I'm glad your mom takes such good care of you with packages and sends things like razors (I buy them all the time, it's ridiculous. I could probably have paid for electrolysis by now.)

Anyway, that's a cute photo of you with your parcels. Thanks for all your kind words about me. It has been so fun reconnecting with you through our blogs and emails.

Hi Ann,

I have just spent the last hour catching up on all of your blogs. They are great. This is also a monumental moment for me, because it is the 1st time ever that I have even read a blog! To catch up on a few, I am not sure what my passsions are yet on a community/public note... my only passions tend to be my children. Black makes me think of storms, and I love storms. (Black is also Chase's favorite color, and when people ask him his favorite color he says black.) To respond to your song topic... "I Love You" from the Climax Blues Band. Verbal Toot= probably too many to list... Last, but not least...
Happy Anniversary, sorry I forgot to call you. I know, I'm a bad sister.

Jill - great hearing your comments, you were always so much fun to have hanging around the family home.

Living way out in the country, I understand how much fun packages in the mail are.
