THE Question is:
WHY do I wait so long to open my packages???
I've been holding on to these boxes and envelopes, some for more than a week now.
As they lay on my dining room table, I pass by them about 10 times a day... and smile :)
I have my reasons for waiting, but please understand...
It's not because I'm not excited to receive them.
It's not because I'm unappreciative.
It's not because I have willpower. (I have none)
I wait because...
I love the excitement
I love the unknowing of what's inside
I love that someone has thought of ME
but most of all, I wait because...
I WANT TO SAVOR...
each moment of the opening
each moment of the unwrapping
each handwritten letter in every word of the card
and I savor the love that's put into each detail that's made especially for ME!
It's not a holiday. It's not my birthday.
But Every Day is a special day when I am loved by friends near and far.
And let me tell you ALL something else my friends...
Each and every one of you that visited my last post, you have made my day just as special as I have read each and every one of the sweet, thoughtful and kind comments that were left for me.
As excited as I was opening these packages yesterday, I was just as excited and touched by the words you left me since last Wednesday. Thank You.
Every Day is a special day when I have you!!!!
I hope you'll join me each day this week as I share one of my gifts with you...starting tomorrow.
Whether it's a gift, a card, kind words or even a smile...I hope you have touched someone in a positive way today.
Have a wonderful week...I know I will!!!!
