The Kindness of "Strangers"

I'll say this - I've met some pretty strange and amazing people during my 'life' on the internet. I can tell you that I value every friendship I've made and YES, I do consider people that I've never met Friends.

Anyway, lol. Its pretty obvious that I haven't been feeling too great lately and I had been neglecting my photography as well. BUT I've been taking my meds and I feel myself easing back into things pretty well.
One of my recent self-portraits on flickr directed some friends to the post about my 'naked' thoughts and it spurred one of them to send some love my way, in the form of a white box of goodies that made me squeal :).

Jenn and my mom were here when the package arrived and, since I was smoking a cigarette and she was holding onto it with greedy delight, Jenn opened it for me. (I swear, I don't think I could have pried it out of her hands - she looked kinda crazy-eyed.) I told her it was from Denise - "I'm not sure what's gonna be in there...so be careful opening it."
As she pulled things out of the box we all giggled and candy was passed around.

Contents of the box:
Mascara (that I've been secretly crushing on for a while)
Eyelash curler (one of the GOOD ones)
Funky Polka-dotted socks (my first pair of funky socks EVER)
a big box of Mike and Ikes' (which my son grabbed and never let go of)
a giftcard to Mickey-D's so I could have a night off from cooking
and a card that says: You know it was a good day if you didn't hit or bite anyone. AMEN!!

Care package

Day 250 - 10/02/2008

Thank you so much Denise for being awesome and making me smile and giggle - it felt really good :)!

hahaha! I'm so glad you liked it. I laughed so hard when you said "I'm not sure what's gonna be in there...so be careful opening it."
