A Random Act of Kindness

When I came through the door today, a package was waiting for me above my mailbox. I hadn't been expecting a package so it was quite a surprise. So I hurried up my stairs, dropped the package on the bed, grabbed the closest pair of scissors and opened it up. Once opened, I was greeted with red and purple tissue paper and a card sitting on top. I opened up the card and the package was a Random Act of Kindness (RAOK) from Carma (aka Esme Beanswallow). I moved aside the tissue paper to reveal:

I appologize for the crappy picture. Lighting wasn't good, but I couldn't wait to take the picture and share the joy. Inside were two skeins of yarn, double knitted so I can easily unwind and knit two at a time socks or fingerless mitts, eco-friendly buttons which I have to attach to my knitting bag, a breast cancer awareness pen (I needed a new pen for my knitting bag too) a keychain that also works as a bottle opener (perfect for bar knitting nights) and the best thing of all, a bag of her COOKIES! Pink Dalmations to be exact. Carma makes the best cookies. Now I'll just have to keep the boyfriend out of them.

Thank you so much Carma for the RAOK. It really brought some joy to my day.
