The temperature in my house has dropped into the 40's and, at night, it's barely bearable. As perky as I usually am, my mood has been heading south from these hardships. I needed some relief -- and I finally got some today.
The mail brought a melange of birthday wishes from my friends. They make me feel so much better. The warmth of these dear people sustains me.
I received a lovely card and two bottles of terrific nail-polish from Emma. I got pretty cards from Megan and Sara. And, from sweet Toadmama, I got a veritable party!
Toadmama sent me a collection of gifts so perfect that she must be a mind-reader. They include a t-shirt with the customized Betty Boop image shown above. I *adore* Betty Boop and have seen all of her cartoons.
Also in the box are a pretty compact (how'd she know I needed one?), a purple scarf, a Betty Boop doll with her hair up in curlers, a statement ring and assorted goodies. Wow!
I don't know about you, but friendship is a boat that keeps me afloat emotionally. Gestures like these from lovely pals mean the world to me. Are friends as important to you?
