Yesterday’s Mail

I received a package yesterday in a small padded envelope. There was a handwritten note on a flowered memo pad, and a tiny box wrapped up in tissue paper covered with pansies. I knew the sender — but this was an unusual event.

I tore into that gift as if I was a small child on Christmas morning. But in my wildest imagination, I could never have guessed what I found inside.

Did you read my blog post, Coffee? If you haven’t — you need to!

You can find it here:  When The River Won’t Flow: Coffee

I am blessed to have such a friend who could cheer me both with her words and gift. She said she saw it, and she thought it might help when I was away from home and couldn’t look at the coffee mug. She sent me a very tiny little silver bracelet that bears the same words from Shakespeare’s play, A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream, that grace my coffee mug.

“And though she be but little, she is fierce.”

Thank you! Even when I am away from home and can’t see the reminder on my coffee mug, I can wear the words on my new bracelet, which I dare believe will get much use.

PS — if you want to see my bracelet, you are going to have to follow that link above!
