What's more exciting than getting a box in the mail...chock full of awesome treats? One of my long-distance soul sisters totally blew me out of the water by filling one of those pre-paid US mailing boxes full of things designed to make my heart sing and help gently nurture my body back into prime health. There were several different packets of different dried sea vegetables (seaweeds/kelps and such of different kinds), none of which I've ever eaten and ALL of which I'm jonesing to try! There was a jar of tahini, some wonderful teas, a smoked salmon filet (!!!!), and small marble mortar and pestle (!!!), a big container of xylitol (I can't seem to find any here) and a small squeeze bottle of agave nectar. A box of Indian spice. And a wonderful personalized postcard with her picture (it's been years since we've seen each other) on it.
Did I mention I LOVE SURPRISE PACKAGES?? woooo!!!
I love my friends even more than care packages, too. THANK YOU, MJ, for the wonderful goodies, but even more for your friendship over the years...no words can express it adequately. And to those of you friends here, who have come to mean so much to me, THANK YOU. If you've prayed for Jack and me and for my recent bronchitis slump to get better...I'm feeling better by the day...so much better than even a few days ago. I have met very few friends from here online yet, but I appreciate you all. I am so grateful!
MJ, I did try that seaweed in some soup...the wakame...and it is wonderful!
Here's to brown paper packages tied up with string.
And here's to friendship!
Now...which tea should I drink tonight?? :)
