Today I actually love the U.S. Postal Service

Normally I hate the mail. It's usually either bills or worthless junk, so none of it pertains to me.

But yesterday was a different matter. As I sifted through the college brochures and the pizza flyers, I found a little salmon-colored piece of paper that told me that our postman had tried to deliver a little package that I had been waiting for. Unfortunately I wasn't home to sign for it, so I went to the post office FIRST THING this morning to get it.

I brought home my little white envelope, carefully slit it open, and found a blue envelope inside.

And inside the beautiful, blue envelope were these.

(Sorry about the blurry photo--I was so excited my hands were shaking.)

Still, doesn't that look so much better than this?

We're on our way!!!



  1. Thank you! Thank you! I wish I could remember all the people that I've told about this little incident so I could send them your blog today, Shel.
    The woman was to be trusted, but somehow I feel better knowing the tix are in your hands.

  2. Yea for you! So glad it all worked out! Green with envy...

  3. Yah!!! I'm so glad you got the tickets and everything is ok! So thankful to hear!

  4. Oh. My. Stars. OH MY STARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!********************************
    I am so excited. I wish we could go have lunch to celebrate. I am so thrilled.

  5. You know what I thought this was? Until I read the other comments, that is. I think I need to put on mu glasses but I thought it was from a publisher. So I'm going to say that's prophetic. You will be published. Amen. Let's celebrate in anticipation!!
