Berry Iced Tea

A Tai shi student left for the States and left me all thse little gifts! You know what’s so weird,
Because last night I said, “Gee, I wish I hadn’t given away my sprouting bags.” And the first thing I pulled out of the gift bag were those green sprouters!
I skyped with my daughter yesterday and she said she bought my son some pj pants. And I wished longingly for some pj pants. I didn’t even wait one day!
I’m sitting on the meditation stool. I needed t.p. I needed a sponge! I’m serious! I wished for extra first aid products for my guest house, and there they were! Amd my favorite yellow shirt. And tea! Whoa! I mean, the lotions, the notepads, everythig is needed, even the bag. Oh my gosh, I’m getting my new, old laptop in the mail soon, so i can use the lock. What!
