So anyway, this kind and thoughtful great aunt sent a package for the kids last week. And in there with the toy tractors and gorgeous little white dress was this photo with a note attached ....
Isn't that just about the nicest thing you could hope to get in the mail? A simple, sweet reminder that you're loved? By people who wordlessly taught you a kindness lesson early on, then remind you 20-some years later that kindness can also be taking the time to write a little note and send an old picture in this day where nobody really writes anything on paper anymore because it's all emails and blogs and facebooking and such?
So though I doubt they're blog readers, thank you, Aunt Mary Ann and Uncle Jim, for kindness past and present.
(You love my 80s mullet. You know you do.)
