I dread going to the mailbox. My mail consists of medical bills. So when Dave, my husband, handed me a package my frown turned into a smile. Inside I found a handwritten card which I sat down to read later. I reached my hand in gingerly. I felt a silky fabric, and the weight of the object felt like jewelry. Happily surprised when I pulled out a silk satchel and emptied the contents. A beaded necklace with a silver patina cross, and three beaded bracelet’s, made such a profound difference in my mental well-being. Theses gifts, with stones of powerful healing energy, dried my tears. I walked out onto the back deck… sat down and read my letter. Ahhhhhhh It’s really the simple things that make life great.
