I've Learned ....

Sometimes someone does something so wonderful for you, so generous that you can't help but cry. I have been waiting for a mystery package from pita and it arrived this morning. When I originally posted that the package was on its way I speculated it could be anything between a postcard or a million dollars - I was wrong it was a treasure far greater.

Pita had been to see Maya Angelou and sent me one of her books, the newspaper coverage and a letter describing the evening. Oh I was so happy and humbled I cried. I turned the pages of the book which is a combination of memories and recipes and I exclaimed over every page - and I laughed - and cried some more (sometimes it is advantageous to live by yourself).

The talk in Kentucky was on how your actions (the good and the bad) affect others and I say here and now pita that this act speaks volumes - loudly.

How do you thank someone for something so very very precious? For something that changes you the second you see it - and it will carry you for years to come?

I am not sure ...but when I find a way I will be sure to let pita know.

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel" Maya Angelou
