Unexpected BLISS .....

On an unseasonably warm November day, I returned home from work and found a package in my mailbox.
I wasn't sure what it was ..... but when I saw who sent me the package, I was VERY excited!

I sat down in my favorite chair with a pair of scissors in my hand and opened up my parcel.
I opened up the box, sifted through the layers of paper, and this is what I found:










My very own DAY OF THE DEAD SKULL!
Handmade by THE totally Fabulous BOXER!

I was so overcome by her thoughtfulness I sat and cried.
Not just a few tears.
I had one of those soul cleansing, body wracking cries.

It felt good.
Better than good.

I have since placed him on the altar for which he was intended ....










He's right between my Mother and my Brother ....
Right where he belongs.










(The entire Altar)


Thank you Boxer ..... your thoughtfulness, generosity and friendship mean more to me than I can adequately express!
YOU are a big part of my bliss!
