when the light at the end of the tunnel is very big.

And there are days it is very small. For the most part lately, it is been very very very small. I’m hacking a lung and not sleeping well.

It’s during these times, little things make my day and make that light get bigger, even if it’s just for a few minutes.

I got an unexpected package the day before yesterday. It was one of those days Spawn forgot to get the mail and feeling my oats, I went out after 10 PM to get it. The weather has been delightful, not humid and about 30 degrees cooler than it has been. When I got out of the hospital, it was so humid it took my breath.

But it was lovely out, the stars were out, the moon was bright and when I put my hand in the mailbox, something besides bills, flyers or magazines came out.

It was a lovely handmade envelope and it come from far far away. The envelope was so pretty, I hated taking scissors to slit it! But what was inside was lovely.

LOOK! A new facemask to add to my collection. Not only do we have Guy and Thorin but GARY too! and It’s reversible. Yas!

The earrings are one of a kind – Rider of the Mark and the lovely note from the sender with GUY! It’s up on my mirror so I can look at it all the time!

Thank you, Guylty for thinking of me. This past week has been very scary. Very very scary and I’m really worried. I have coughed so much and so hard, my sternum, ribs and diaphragm ache. My doctor is scheduling me for a chest xray and a visit to the pulmonologist. Sometimes, I don’t think I’ll ever get well. Spawn is very worried. The other night, he hugged me and cried because he was afraid I was going to take my last breath and he didn’t know what to do. So this came at the perfect time. Thank you!
