Today has been an ordinary day; it was gorgeously sunny, I went to work, I came home...
... and waiting for me in the post was a package from Germany, with the two Hornblower DVDs that I was missing from my collection! They were sent by a girl on a forum that I've only been a member of for about a month; I barely know her, but she offered to send me copies of the two movies because I was sad that I did have them! I don't even know how to express my surprise and joy at such kind thoughtfulness, but wow. :) And THEY PLAY ON MY LAPTOP!!!! Because the cheap pirated ones I bought from eBay don't, and I'm quite upset about that because what am I going to do next year?! But, wow, I'm so touched :)
And then, I checked my hotmail account because I got a message saying "you have 2 new messages", and that was strange because I never ever use my hotmail anymore. And in my inbox was an Amazon gift voucher for US$60 and right now I'm just so overwhelmed I could cry. It's from a friend I used to chat with all the time, before we kind of lost touch, but recently I've been seeing him on MSN again (Anjali, remember Lefty/Jeff?). And that's just so incredibly lovely and generous of him and he really, really shouldn't have, but I'm so touched and overwhelmed and... lost for words.
There are such wonderful people in my life; so many small acts of kindness that mean so much to me; such great friends without whom the world would be a much darker and duller place; the best family I could hope for to love, and to love me; I love you all, so much, and I'm grateful for you every single day. I don't know why I'm so lucky to have you all, and I'm not entirely sure that I deserve you, but I'm so happy that I do, and I hope you all know and remember it always. *big huge hugs because I love you!*
