The other day when I opened my mailbox,
I was delighted to find an unexpected package sitting inside.
Hmpf! Who could this be from?, I wondered.
I couldn't wait to get back to the house to open it and discover the contents of the gift.
I noticed the return address which revealed that the mailer of the package was my Mother-in-law.
She's on vacation right now in the midwest.
I cut the tape that held the box so tightly locked and I peered inside.
Oh, how wonderful, my eyes gleamed.
Inside was the perfect birthday gift for me.
I love to cook and I love using spices.
I was thrilled going through the box to discover several different varieties.
I really love this gift.
It not only fits my personality,
but I think it's wonderful because it came from someone else's vacation spot which means
that she was thinking about me even when she should have been thinking about herself and having fun.
What a wonderful and thoughtful gift.
It even came with these empty jars to transfer the spices into.
I think I'llgo buy some filet mignon and tryout the steak seasoning tonight.
Ah, it's wonderful getting snail mail.
I really hope that snail mail doesn't die out.
