I think I have a Fairy Godmother!

Earlier tonight I posted "UNNECESSARY HUMANITARIAN SERVICE." My closing line was: "Someone should send chocolate." Less than two hours later the doorbell rang. Phil went to the door. No one was in sight. A car sped away, into the night.

This was on the doorstep:Inside? A handmade, chocolate apron!
This was in the pocket
Along with a note:
Mint truffles. A whole handful of them.

Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus and a Fairy Godmother, too!

Thank you, my dear Fairy Godmother.

PS You should start a chocolate delivery business. You could also sell homemade cupcakes. You should buy a truck, all decorated in frosting and sprinkles. You could make a fortune. In Utah Valley alone the sales of Prozac would diminish so much that the drug companies would send representatives out to find out what was making the women so happy. It would be you.

I mostly want to be the first to comment on your blog. I also mostly want to be the one that left you that kindness. I, however, have an alibi saying that I was not there today. Only too bad for me, because that sure was nice of whoever did that. I wonder where I can get me one of those fairy godmothers?

Jessica said...

Yeah, I want one of those fairies, too. My kids have one, though. Lucky duckies.

Aren't there lovely people in the world in spite of the junk? Some people deliver chocolate, some people save starving cats from the brink of death, some people give Wednesday presents, and some people blog and give laughs to otherwise not-so-very-laughing people. What loveliness!

You must be an elbow of a woman to have such good fairy god people.

It wasn't me! I wouldn't have been able to get there in two hours! LOL! No, really, I have to get you in my favorites again.. There. Done. I've missed reading you - we got a new computer, so had to redo all my favorites.

Glad you have a real life fairy godmother! Have a great day!

I know, and you do, too. Though she would never want us to say. She "scatters sunshine" (and chocolate when there is a need), everywhere she goes.

Thank you, my dear friend, for your act of humanitarian service. Daisy thanks you, Oreo thanks you, Blackie wonders what all the excitement was about, and MamaCat wonders why you didn't stay and play awhile. But since I have explained that you were in need of a clothes change after your wrestle with the back water spigot, she completely understands, and says, thanks for stopping by.

Love you. You're the best!

(I owe you chocolate, but would you settle for a J-Dawg?)

That's so wonderful someone comes and places a surprise gift at your door. WOW.

Lucky you! Sooooo fun and well deserved, my dear.

Dear Sweet Lynne, It was so typical of you to try to do a good deed for your neighbor's cats, and I am so glad that someone rewarded you for your "sweet" behavior with such an apropos gift. It sounds like something you would see in a sit-com on TV, but it actually happened to you.

I am such a klutz that things happen all the time when I am just trying to do something for someone like when I was 14 and wanted to make my mother a surprise oatmeal birthday cake. When I tried to open the brand-new container of Quaker Oats, it slipped and I ended up with an inch of oats spreading across the kitchen floor. At least it was dry and i could sweep it up easily. But then there was the time I was tipping the Raggedy Ann cake that i had just spent 2 hours decorating, so it could be photographed and the whole cake slipped off the tray just 30 minutes before my daughter's birthday party was to begin.
