A Merry Christmas to One and All!

My heart was more than a little heavy when I put Mom's Christmas angel on my front door today -- she must have been made over 40 years ago and has graced Mom's door forever, it seems. But I had two wonderful, quite unexpected gifts.

You may recall that I lusted after this strange cat creature that I met at the Brinkmeyer House bazaar. A knock at the door yesterday morning: there was a neighbor I occasionally see while out walking. He held a gift bag and explained that his wife (who worked at the bazaar) thought that I should have the cat! There he/she now sits, in my kitchen.

And tonight, I was part of a lovely family dinner, thanks to a taxi driver/dispatcher with whom I regularly ride. All I can say is how kind and thoughtful people can be. My friends and family, certainly they are great folk, each and every one -- what would I do without them. But what made this Christmas even more special were the surprises. Wow!

Now THAT was a wonderful Christmas post.

Merry Christmas to you, granny j! More good surprises, too.

Including those ones on Otherwise Completely Random Uneventful Days. Those are great, aren't they?

Hi, k -- I have always appreciated the totally unexpected, random surprise. Being a generally optimistic person, such surprises tend to be good ones.
