Yesterday was NOT a great day. Had a farewell dinner for a friend who is PCSing and, after dealing with car stuff in the morning, fought a migraine all afternoon. (First migraine of the year in the books. :p) So it was a middlin’ day all day, to say the least.
But when I got home from dinner, I had the funnest surprise waiting for me in the mail!
Jes had asked for my address a while back because she said she wanted to send me “a little something.” I thought a late Christmas card. Instead I got a package FULL of Disney-themed Japanese goodies – candy, pedicure stuff, more candy…lots of candy :) It was so stinkin’ exciting! (In case you can’t tell :)) She also included a sweet note letting me know she was thinking of me and SoldierMan during our first deployment.
Once the high of the surprise wore off, I couldn’t help feeling totally overwhelmed. The amount of support we’ve received during this deployment (two months down today, btw – WHOO-HOO!) has been so humbling. And here was a sweet friend, a person I literally only know through and because of blogging, who took the time to pull some stuff together, write a letter and send me a package, just to make sure I felt loved on.
Unworthy. That’s how I feel. Grateful and unworthy.
Thank you so much, Jes, for brightening my day/week/month/deployment! This is going in the scrapbook :) (And be sure and check out her blog and all her adventures in Japan!)
