wow....and I mean! - The Void: Mind Wanderings of a Lost Soul
wow....and I mean!
My friend Catherine, just sent her husband down to the office with a present for me! It was absolutely the best present I've gotten in an extremely long time! The funniest part is that I went shopping with her yesterday and the present is made up of the stuff that I helped her pick out....but she has morphed them into a fabulous fabulous gift. There's this little box that she covered in the prettiest art paper (flowers embedded, very nice) and she pasted a fairy picture on it (i love fairies). Inside the box are all these little folded pieces of paper with writing prompts on them, like: "What do you think brings good or bad luck?" "How did your father spend his time supporting his family?" etc. But wait folks! That's not all. She also sent this awesome binder that she found yesterday that has Oriental (sorry don't know if it's Chinease or Japonease) writing on it and then says "Meditation", which is the one I liked best yesterday :) lol...It's filled with paper and a poem. I love the little poem "Preserve your memories, seal them up well. What you forget, you can never retell. But a journal that's kept fresh on the shelf, will help someone through rough times, maybe even yourself."

*sigh* of complete happiness.....the only problem with this gift is that she wasn't here for me to hug her :)...silly fool, doesn't she know that I MUST hug her for this gift? :)

Feeling: touched touched

Can you scan the characters on the binder? I speak Japanese, and could tell you whether they are Japanese or Chinese...or possibly both.

My best buddy sent me a gift like that this week cos I was down and ill. I love friends like that! What they put out into the world comes back threefold.
