The Mailman Brought Me a Surprise

I got a box in the mail today from my mom's old neighbor Linda. I wasn't expecting anything from her so imagine my surprise when I opened it and found this pink ribbon cookie cutter and card from her. It's funny cause I had just been telling my neighbors about the carrot
cake she used to make for my birthday. I needed this gift from her more than you could imagine - since I have been feeling a bit depressed lately. Linda is kinda like my other mother since my mother passed away 2+ years ago.
Not only was this gift a great pick me up, and an awesome way to celebrate breast cancer awareness month - but the timing was perfect cause every October when my parents anniversary comes around I tend to feel like an orphan (since after my mother's death
my step father disappeared from our lives and we haven't seen or heard from him since) so it's a nice reminder that I am loved.

The funny thing is that my mother's name was Linda as well - and the two of them became close friends after meeting in a casino. Shortly after, Linda and her mom moved from California and bought the house next to my mom's. I guess sometimes these kinda things are just meant to be. I'm lucky to have someone like her in my life. I know she's always concerned about my well being, and is always there for me if I need her. Like I said, she's my other mother =)
