In my letterbox...
We thought about it and it occurred to me that I had lost my entire wrapping paper collection. I always unwrap carefully and save every piece I get given to use again. Wrapping a present beautifully is a joy of mine. Second hand wrapping paper is not really something you can replace or is technically that big a deal.
Tim lost most of the seeds we owned and had been excited to plant in the garden, small not that big a deal but time consuming and expensive to replace. We told our friend this - and since getting back from the desert we have been receiving package after package. Some filled with wrapping paper - some with a mix of seeds and wrapping - a whole subscription to the diggers club - from this friend but also all her friends - some we know - some we don't. Amazing. The kindness of others - being on the receiving end, it's an incredible experience. And, although I lament this year as being "washed down the Murrumbidgee"... still the bigger experience of it is awe inspiring.
