Life is filled with surprises - red1030 - 06-30-2008

Life is filled with mysteries and puzzles around us. Today I was feeling even more down about the castle trip because it is over and I miss everyone so much, and then I received a great pm from Jayne which lifted my spirits. I doubt however, that my loooonnnnnggggg winded one brought comfort to Jayne.

Then about 10 minutes after I wrote the pm to Jayne, fed ex arrived at my door. I received a very interesting package. Immediately I noticed it was from my old work place’s address, and then I opened it and found two packages. I opened the card first and found out that a few of my ex employees went together to send me a gift on my anniversary date, that I told my staff I would not return. Yes that date is today. I received a beautiful card stating that they miss and love me and that they will always remember me. Then I opened the first package and it was a picture in a frame that says:

Everyday Hero
The care you provide for so many brings comfort in times of need. Thanks for your dedication.

This is a common saying around nursing but the point is that they cared enough to remember me after 3 years. I think it is really nice and I will cherish it always.

The next package has a glass standing tall on a glass plate. On the glass plate there are roses and on the tall glass there is a saying.

For a Remarkable Person

Although many have touched the edges of my life, coming and going, scarcely leaving an impression…you are someone who has made a real difference in my life. I wanted you to know just how special you really are to me. Thank you.

I am completely humbled. I wanted to share with all of you, because of the magnitude of importance it is to me. When you are feeling down remember that when you leave a path of caring someone is now caring for you…
Thanks for reading. If I can stop crying happy and sad tears I am going to give them a call. I miss them all so much and my pride has not allowed me to visit too often. I think they just stripped this pride or fear of them seeing me as weak as I am now. Love you all Red
