Whatever would give you that idea?


Happy Mail.

A surprise package arrived at my door yesterday.

On the envelope, it read “Happy Mail”.

I could not have begun to guess what was inside…

I will let you see for yourselves.

A most beautiful note, attached to a most beautiful print. Of my feathers; my strength symbols.

This piece of “Happy Mail” was from a girl who became my friend nearly 17 years ago. My middle school bestie, part of our “squad” of girlfriends. She always had the sweetest, most gentle soul. Later, when she became a mama, she brought her son to my baby class.

And we have stayed in touch throughout the years, weaving in and out of closeness, supporting each other through life events and continuing to foster our love. 
And out of the goodness of her heart she was sending me strength after what she intuitively suspected was a trying week.photo 2

Of course it had to be framed and hung immediately. photo 3My new favorite piece on my almost full gallery wall.

Thank you, sweet friend. It was happy mail, indeed.

So this was almost going to be,

“Hey, look what I found!”

…but instead, it’s “Hey, look what I got!”

Peacock feathers and gold. And the chance to be really creative. I am going to head to Michaels to see if I can find big frames. I’m thinking gold. I’m thinking for the side wall of my bedroom. But it remains to be seen. I’m excited for the chance to be creative. Creative with my strength symbol. Score!

Oh, and mom…do we have a date?
