I was chilin’ in my bed (surprise, surprise) and a guy walked in with a Staples box. I know I didn’t order any office supplies. I saw the return label was from my cousin Lyn. HOORAY! I didn’t know what was in the box, but decided to wait until Milton came here until I opened it.
Later that night, Milton pulled out the box and said, “You’re gonna love this!” Out of the box came a monkey Easter Basket with some bath products and jelly beans. If you know me, you know I love monkeys. My smile was so wide! All of my family lives outside of Louisville (and outside of KY) so I loved knowing that they were still thinking of me from afar. Thank you so much Lyn, Rene, Myke and Aunt Juanita!
Little did they know, but in my youth and even as an adult, my mother usually made me an Easter basket. Both of my parents are deceased and won’t be here for Baby Turner’s birth, so this monkey Easter basket is a way to have a little piece of my mother in the room!
Also, I have a great smelling room! Vicky Spencer brought some lillies, Matrid left some beautiful orange flowers, Ms. Helfrich gave me some pink tulips and I received the alter flowers from church. I definitely feel loved and that warms my heart!
