Waking up this morning to ActiveRain (like every morning) brought me wonderful greetings for my birthday ...thanks to all! But that's not what I want to write about. Kathy McGraw wrote a Monday Morning Gifts....Happy Birthday Sally but that's not what I want to write about either.
You see, ActiveRain Friends that I have made along my journey on ActiveRain is surely a bizarre way to meet people in our industry. But yes, I have made a few that have come to know me and who I am through my writing, talking with me and actually meeting me.
I met Kathy McGraw in November of 2007 when she came to Hawaii and we have been close friends since. So close that she knows me and my antics. So, my birthday is coming up and last week she tells me I'll receive a package in the mail any day...and...DO NOT OPEN IT UNTIL MY BIRTHDAY.
It comes and I call her to let her know and ask if I can open it. NOPE. I can't believe she said no! lol! I don't open it. The next morning I finally open it and I read the note. I took the picture with the pens over a couple of words but it says, "HA! I told you not to open this early, but just like a little kid you couldn't wait".
I couldn't stop laughing and Gary is cracking up (he knows me too) saying HA HA, Kathy got you good!
I called Kathy cracking up and she knew I'd opened it.
That's probably the best present I have ever gotten. I love laughing (even though my mom calls it boisterous...I call it hearty :) and having friends who chime in with antics of their own.
In any event...another package comes a couple of days later and like I said...we come to know each other through this online and meeting with peers thing.
My other present from Kathy is the fairy card holder. I am an avid collector of fairies and I believe...there's a fairy (or angel or whatever you want to call it) in everyone. So, I'm going to have a wonderful day...thinking of the wonderful ActiveRain Friends I have come to know since joining ActiveRain in March of 2007. (thanks marti for the wonderful addition to your post too!)
My REAL present is all of you!
Mahalo to all!
