Cozy in my house, I hear the heavy pound of footsteps hitting steps, as they get closer and closer. Shuffling to and fro, louder and louder as the heart beats faster. I wonder what it could be, suddenly a strong hand knocks at the door, a small but firm voice asks who it is, only to discover it's a surprise for her in the form of two packages. She holds them in her arms, the rough feel of postal paper slides across her fingertips, the smell of them reminds her of dusty air and the old worn out cloth bag the packages had been carried in. A old man with whiskers white as snow smiles gently and says goodbye to shuffle down the stairs once more. Breathing deep as the realisation of how many stairs he had walked up and now must go down again *a sigh of determination* takes form as he vanishes around the corner.
I carry my prizes to my room and gently unwrap them bit by bit, careful not to tear one piece, the slippery feel of tape, the blue ink dances across the paper to spell out my name and the sender's from afar - dear friends they are. Excitement grows at every turn, anticipating what might be inside, paper torn away, my surprise slips into my lap. I look down to see twinkling as the sun glistens through the room, there in my lap beautiful earrings for me, reminding me of ones fit for egyptian queens..I smile deeply as my eyes glaze over their beauty. I open the next and the sweet smell of sugary soap fills my lungs, soap in the form of a cupcake in my hand, child-like squeals fill the room. A happy heart in knowing there are flowers in the world I call my friends..with that one is never truly alone!!
A BIG thank you to my friends Marta & Dani for the wonderful gifts, I love them :)
Happy Monday cupcakes!!
