I have said it before, and I will say it again. I write this blog because I enjoy writing, I process my thoughts and feelings best through writing, and I enjoy sharing that with others. The best things that have come to me from this blog are the people I have met, the support I receive, and true friendships that I have made.
An incredibly sweet, generous, kind, and thoughtful friend (that I have made through this blog) sent me a PRESENT! And not just any present, but THE Boston Marathon jacket!!
I am not the kind of person that puts a lot of value in "stuff", but I sure do put a ton of value into thoughtfulness, and this was an incredibly thoughtful (and SUPER COOL) gift. Super cool. My Grandma Claire always told us that you couldn't love "things", you could only love people. When I would say I loved my teddy bear, she would say, "You can really, really like that teddy bear, but you can't love it. You can only love people." I bet Grandma Claire would have let me love this jacket. :)
I hope it's not bad luck to wear the Boston jacket before the race, but I had to try it on and wear it for a couple of "thank you" pics.
Thank you sweet Jennifer, for all of your support, encouragement, kindness, generosity, and friendship!
