the tiniest perfection
Well, I guess I've mentioned before that I have a thing for little tiny things.
It borders on an obsession sometimes, really.
And surprisingly enough, an old friend of mine from high school remembered this from something I mentioned on facebook or something.
Last week she sent me a message saying she had collected "something little that had reminded her of me" and asked for my address to send it to me.
(I guess I didn't realize how literally she meant "something little." :))
And my heart did a little flutter when I opened the envelope to find this bottle cap filled with these tiny perfect miniature seashells she had collected at Lake Michigan. Ah! She absolutely made my day by so thoughtfully giving to me 2 of my very favorite things: little things, and mail. :)
It is rare in the world today to see an instance where someone is thoughtful and remembers something small and insignificant that is important to someone else, and then actually acts and does something about it, letting the other person feel remembered.
And amazing how something so small and simple, as small and simple as these tiniest perfect shells, can bring such happiness to someones day. :)
I just want to remember that.
Thank you, Stephanie.
