1. I get a pleasant surprise when I check the mail. Two surprises actually. A friend many miles away has sent a card wishing me a Happy 2012. Another friend has sent a book written by a former mutual schoolmate. Love.
2. A letter from the hospital delivers some good news. I haven't said much but I have been going out of my mind with worry this past month. I'm not entirely out of the woods yet - there are a couple more health appointments to go - but I can feel a fair bit of the anxiety and worry unravelling and fading away.
3. I get an invitation on Facebook to attend a gathering of old schoolfriends in a few weeks. I've mentioned it before - it's nice to be remembered by others.
