I have written twice about my Smile Project on Facebook. This is where I post a picture of a smile each day. My Facebook friend, Susan Keeker, started this. I have a rough draft about Susan and her sister, Jamie, but today I have to write a short post that says 'THANK YOU' to them.
Yesterday I received a package in the mail. Ray had gotten the mail and set the package on the table for me to see when I returned from my walk in the park. Stepping into the kitchen I noticed the package and wondered what it might be. I had already received all of my on line orders, so this was a mystery. When I opened this package all I could do was smile. Susan and Jamie had made a My Social Book of all of the smiles from last year....and ordered a copy for me! How kind, how thoughtful, how wonderful to open a surprise book of smiles. Thank you, thank you and thank you again. I wish someone would have been there to take a picture of me when I first opened it to catch that spontaneous smile. Oh well, maybe Ray and I will try to recreate it.
If I had not joined Facebook, I would never have reconnected with Susan and Jamie. I am not sure when I last saw them. Our families (along with the Lamars, Wilsons, Wileys and Tresslers) would all have picnics and get togethers when I was young. My family moved to Ohio when I was in the 8th grade so the visits were sparse after that. Jamie and Susan were quite a bit younger...maybe four or five, so I really did not get to know them until Facebook reunited us as friends.
