A Ray of Sunshine Thru The Clouds




Yesterday I returned home, after being in annoyed state all day, to suddenly perking up to have something in my mailbox catch my eye. I noticed a letter with scrolling penmanship addressed to me. Hmmmmm what's this?!

Usually my mailbox is like my inbox... full of spam. I get so much junk mail and mail from the same past tenants that I don't even look at it anymore. It piles up and eventually I throw the junk in recycling. My mom also gets tired of it and takes on the job of returning the mail to the senders. (Works for me!)

This envelope was different! It was special and it had a stamp with the Queen on it! I instantly knew it could be none other than my dear friend Nathaniel. It immediately turned up the dial on my happy meter.

Enclosed was a sweet card with the following written:

Dear Dolly,
I know you collect Canadian Tire Money so I've sent you this dollar. I got it in 2003 when I got my first DVD player.
I never go to Canadian Tire so I've gifted it to you!
May it bring you one dollar closer to financial freedom!

Love, Nathaniel
