Some of those are wonderful and some, not so much! But, in this case it is wonderful.
I came home to piles of mail and magazines. Thankfully a couple of months of Smithsonian, National Geographic Traveler and Art & Antiques. I enjoy reading myself to sleep with those.
One of the unexpected things was that someone in Denver acted as a Good Samaritan and mailed my driver's license to me. Thank you to humankind.
But, tucked into the pile of stuff was a mail-pak envelope, small in size. Hmm, I thought, "What is that?" It turned out to be a treasure. so unexpected, it took my breath away.
In it was a note from my sister that said she had been going through the effects of my step-mother who had died several years ago and she found this photo album. She forwarded it to me along with some snapshots of my dad and other family photos that I had NEVER seen. The photo album was of Jennifer along with my step mother and my brother and his family one day about 11 years ago.
What a wonderful unexpected gift this was for me. It made me wonder how many other people have photos that I have never seen............. But for the moment, I'll savor these in happy and healthy times. In addition the photo of my dad with Jennifer was when she was about 4 years old and I have never had a photo of just the two of them.
It's amazing how a Random Act of Kindness can impact your life so much. Thanks Marilyn.......
