So, remember a few weeks ago I told you that Glen sent me a time turner?
Well, I made him a facebook friend and we’ve since gotten to know each other pretty well. We’ve emailed back and forth, we’ve shared recipes, and we’ve become, I think, pretty close (well, close in the way people who’ve only met through the computer can be). I have always strongly maintained that the very best part of keeping a blog is the community I’ve gathered as a result. I’ve met some incredible people through my online writing; some of the most important people in my life, in fact.
Well, two weeks or so ago, CHS opened a wishlistr site and uploaded some things we need onto it. A few days later, 150 rolls of paper towels were delivered, thanks to fermat. I nearly burst into tears over the delivery, You Guys; it was a simple little bit of nothing that felt so incredibly generous and thoughtful, and it touched me in a way you wouldn’t expect paper towels could.
This would have been more than enough, but something else came today. As I was in the kitchen getting my lunch, the receptionist was sorting the mail and handed me an envelope with my name on it from a publishing company. I wasn’t expecting anything, so I opened it expecting to find a solicitation, Instead, I found a disc. On that disc is the APA manual with 10 licenses. This disc was not free; it wasn’t even cheap, and here it was, in my hands. I brought it out the social studies teacher, who requested the manual; he is beside himself.
Just when I start thinking that the bad well outweighs the good in the world, something like this happens. Thank you, Glen; I really needed a shot of good today.
