I am amazed!!

Songbird came here on Sunday. She and I got together before Christmas and i gave her my gifts. Small, mostly handmade, hopefully thoughtful, from the heart. She told me i had to wait till she returned from her holidays with the family as my gift hadnt arrived. Since my birthday is the week before Christmas, i had those gifts which, had they covered both Christmas and my birthday, would have been more than generous.

I live in a highrise, on the tenth floor so when she arrived i went down to meet her. She came in with one of our "make it easier to haul packages" carts on it was a large box. I looked and it was an Apple box, it didnt compute. I said, you are just using the box right? She said nooooo. She had a brand new computer!!!!!!

Why she bought me such an extravagant gift is beyond me! We are wonderful friends, have been for a long time and she knew I was saving for two things. A computer and a television. She decided to get me one or the other for Christmas.

I am so blessed with friends who have been supportive throughout my illness of the last couple of years, I often wonder why i am so lucky. My family doesnt like me much so i have always felt that i was not deserving. My friends have proven that to be wrong and I love them!!

Songbird and I have a bond that is unbelievable. She and I have been there for each other through many many things, many of which have never been spoken of in this medium. Suffice it to say, its been amazing!!

I do not equate my friends by what they give me and I mention the extraordinary Christmas gift of a brand new EMac just cuz its soooo totally cool!! Thank you Song!!

Reality...it was not extravagant. I decided you needed something that no one else had ever used...you get to have so few new things. I did it cuz I love ya and cuz I could. Besides...I have a vested interest in your having a fast 'puter!!! Enjoy it!!

If you are strong and push through the pain and the fear, you often find that happiness is waiting for you on the other side.
