Well it gives me hope. As long as we as a society have this understanding...it means that the majority of us are still morally and karmically...holding on.
I joined the Secret Pal movement on it's SIXTH round...just because the whole idea of some stranger out there in the world sending me something specific to my hobby just because they said that they would...is really cool. The notion that the only connection that this person has to me is through this blog is even neater - a modernized take on pen pals.
Last week through the haze of project deadlines, self judgement and a severe chest infection I got this in the mail:
1. SOCK YARN! I don't know how she/he knew but I was down to my last two balls of it.
2. A beeyoutiful jewelry case that my new wedding ring will be safely ensconced in (more on that when I can talk about the insurance company without going rabid)
3. Jeweled stitchmarkers for which I have been lusting after for months...ooooo am so spoiled
4. Extremely cool cards with knit related pictures on the front of them.
THANK YOU STRANGER FROM THE HOT LAND!!
