Holeeeeeee moly, people!
So, get this. A few weeks ago, one of my FB friends posted the following status:
It is official. I have chosen the photo for my Christmas portrait surprise. Let the Magic begin. :)
This was my response:
I don't even know what this means, but I'm still filled with giddiness and delight! I do love posts with the words "Christmas" and "surprise" in them!
Fast forward from December 5th to December 17th, when I picked up my mail and found this in my mailbox:
In the words of my beloved mother, "Who gets a portrait for Christmas?!" ... Cancer Girl. That's who!
Seriously, how amazing is that?! My friend Vicky (who, I'll have you know, I have never actually met in real life... she is one of the many sweet and kindred souls who found their way to me after the infamous post of June 16th) drew this. By hand. With five different pencils. It took over 15 hours.
To say that I am touched would be the understatement of the century.
I am honored. I am humbled. I am grateful. I am amazed. I wonder, sometimes - quite often, actually - why so many people are so good to me. My goodness gracious, I lead such a charmed life!
