They say the best surprise is no surprise, but I can’t quite say I agree. I mean, seriously. Who thought of that?
The best surprise is returning to your new country and your new husband after spending five weeks away, walking through the door and finding an oversized package covered with hearts with your name scrawled across the top.
Now, that is a surprise.
Since opening said package, I am the proud owner of a brand new deep blue Toshiba Satellite laptop complete with sound system speakers, built-in web cam, extra wide screen (since I am blind, you know) and all of my old documents and programs transferred over and ready to go.
The battery was even charged!
Accompanying my new gift was the sweetest letter a wife could ever hope to receive from her hubby-a proclamation declaring I was destined to earn “piles and piles” of money through my illustrious writing skills and this new little computer … ain’t he sweet?
The one itty, bitty thing lacking on my new beast, which is four times faster and has more than four times the memory of my dinosaur (I mean, come on, folks, the thing was THREE years old!) is my photo editor.
I can’t find it. Anywhere.
As I sat down to prepare my first LT post since jetting back home, I was disappointed to discover, or should I say, NOT discover my old editor. Then I realized … what better way to reboot my LT posts than with the simplest reminder of all?
It’s not what’s on the gift that is important, but the love with which that gift is sent. And with that said, I couldn’t have asked for more.
Happy Love Thursday. I am glad to be back.
