So a couple of weeks ago Pat had gotten in touch with me and asked if I would be comfortable giving her my address because she wanted to send me a little something. We had been commenting on each other’s blogs and really had become friends. A short time later a package arrived in the mail and I was floored. Her kindness and generosity is amazing to me. She sent a near stranger an amazing gift. Yes, there is yarn and stitch markers and wonderful post cards but more than that she has shown me that there is good in the world. People are nice and not everyone is cruel and heartless. I can’t even describe the way I felt when I opened the package. There are no words. Stunned, amazed, cared about. None of them are adequate. Thank you Pat for the yarn and stitch markers and post cards but mostly for returning my faith in people. There is good in the world.

Pat: Keep your eye on your mailbox. Let’s see if the mail moves as quickly north as it did south.

    That is beautiful yarn, and a beautiful story! When you knit with this yarn, and then when you wear the items you knitted, you will be reminded of this goodness and kindness that arrived in a package in the mail from a good friend.

    Yep, it’s fabulous. I’ve found that knitters (and other fiber enthusiasts) are some of the most fabulous people in all the world 🙂

    Ummm ….. your post has left ME Gobsmacked Karen. Seriously.

    As I mentioned (I think) in the email(s) – it was my absolute pleasure – pure and simple from the heart.

    And well, now this?

    Lol …. I’m feeling a bit shy here.

    Now we’re playing mail tag? Lol …. you really didn’t have to do anything back – honestly – but thank you. And now, I will definitely have reason to walk the walk down our road to the corner, to check the pony express 🙂

    And thank you Karen 🙂
