This morning Kail found a present by our front door for me. The note said:
to JaNae- Open now or wait until Christmas. You are so loved.
Merry Christmas. From some of Santa's elves.
The kids wanted to open it right away. I wanted to wait. My sister came over and hung out and we talked about what it might be & who it might be from. The kids asked a hundred more times to open it but I held strong. Well that is until the kids went to bed. Then I decided the note said I could open it now, and I'm terrible at waiting, so I did.
And you wouldn't be able to wipe the smile off my face!
A Blendtec Blender!! People you do not even know! I have been wanting one of these for forever!
I was dying, DY-ing!!
I had to call my sister right away. She was so mad I didn't open it when she was there. I'm seriously still in shock, and pretty sure the "elves" are going to show up any minute to tell me it was a mistake and take it back.
You know with Gary being gone (this will be our first Christmas apart) I was kind of expecting my life to be insane, with me ending up hating everything. But it hasn't been. I've been uncharacteristically calm.
It's been a wonderful season so far and this just makes it so much more.
so Thank You Thank You elves!!
(even though I don't deserve it)
now how & to who am I going to pay this forward...
(Oh and I have to tell you that Kail thinks I must be something special because after he read the note he said "Santa's elves know you? wow" and that was present enough)
