And while you had a little preview of the mailed treasure this past Friday through the form of a little boy’s utter and uncontrollable joy, I wanted to share a few other reactions to another sweet package from my dear Darlene. I know she doesn’t send packages so she can get credit, but I want her to see those sweet faces she has reached out to again and again from across the country.
Let’s start with Mr. Happy:
Seriously you could send Mr. Happy a box of rocks and the kid would be THRILLED!
But I’m glad you choose practical gifts. 😉
And then there comes Ms. Smiley:
Nice choice on the ice cream cones. It spoke to her heart… seriously, the kid is three. 😉
And then there was Ms. Screamer:
“SHE SENT ME A TUTU DRESS!!!!”
Nice choice, Darlene. Well done for sure.
And then came the Emotionless:
Nevermind her look of mild disgust, she’s just trying to figure out the glittery tissue paper. 😉
Her later response:
That’s right, flabbergasted. Hehe.
From then on my job became making sure the littlest ones did not eat too much, ahem, tissue paper while the other ones RAN ABOUT THE ROOM screaming in joy about their coloring books.
So thank you again, dear friend.
You have blessed them indeed.
