I must confess. . . I never get the mail. Okay, I take that back. I get the mail on a regular basis, like every 7-8 days or so. Why get the mail? There’s only bills and a ton of recycling in there. Plus, I pay all of my bills online anyways and don’t even need the physical copy! I know, I know I need to switch to paperless billing.

There are some times when I get the mail regularly, like around my birthday, holidays, etc. So, I finally got the mail yesterday and there was cute little box waiting for me. Yes, me. Not one of my children, not my husband, not someone’s Christmas card order, not a party favor, but a package for me.

I didn’t really think anything of it. I opened it and literally started tearing up. Inside was a card that read, ” J, Set the timer and tell the world to come back in an hour. 🙂 Hope you’re feeling better. Hugs, January.” Now, I haven’t even gotten to the really good part yet. Inside the box was another cute white box, beautifully tied with a bow. Do you want to know what was inside? It was the cutest cupcake timer that I have ever seen. That’s right. A CUPCAKE timer!! Skyler and Jackson were in the room and said, “Mom, why are you crying?” I replied, “Because one of my really nice and thoughtful clients sent this to me. Out of the kindess of her heart, she saw this and thought of me.”

So January, let me just tell you from the bottom of my heart how I truly appreciate you! I’m pretty sure from this one act, you restored my faith in humanity. Thank you for thinking of me. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to send me the perfect gift! I didn’t know that people like you existed. You will always have a special place in my heart. I am truly thankful!!!!

A little back story on Januraury. . . the first time I “met” January was this summer and she was frantically planning her son’s first birthday party. You may remember the post I did on his amazing sailor party. She did such a fabulous job. You know how there are some people that you just click with? Well, January is one of those people. We are both crazy party planners. We both have all boys. We are both type A. She can probably finish my sentences too. Though we’ve never actually met in person (she lives in Louisiana and I live in Oregon) I feel like I’ve known her for years. We are friends on facebook and chat about out upcoming parties. She’s always so kind to pass ideas and recipes on to me. It’s like she gets me. I don’t have to explain myself or apologize for my craziness.

Thank you January for always being so kind to me. I adore you!!!! Now I might start getting the mail more often!

From the bottom of my heart,
