Last night, I log in to myLot using my cellphone and I opened a discussion from an interest. The discussion quite caught my attention because of a certain word that is new to me. I started reading the discussion and was happy for a new found idea and knowledge. Who would think that a parachute can be made into bracelets? But then, at the end of the discussion, there is a caption that says a picture was attached. I just thought that my cell phone could not get the picture or there maybe something wrong with the signal so just leave it as it and replied to the discussion. I lost my signal in a short while so I was not anymore able to continue with my myLotting. Since there is no electricity, I just decided to go to sleep. Early in the morning, I found out that there is electricity supply already so I decided to log in using my laptop. I received notification and opened it on the last discussion I responded. My new friend will not only show me the picture of a paracord bracelet but a real one. She said she will give it to me as a gift. Wow! I can’t believe it. This is my first Christmas gift if ever. I am so happy, not only because I will receive a gift but also because this gift came from an online friend. I am on the lookout for the gift which will hopefully come soon. How about you my dear myLotter friends? Did you receive an unexpected gift from somebody?

That is so cool! And an early Christmas gift at that. I also had an experienced wherein an online friend decided to send me a big Christmas card. I haven't seen him and eventually we lost touch but I still have the card. I like keeping it because he wrote my name in classic japanese writing style and it is so artistic. Of course who knows I might unexpectedly get in touch with him once more.

Hi jatada. It's just a part I think. Well, i don't know yet the explanation as to what part. But I am excited about it. Thank you for sharing your opinion.

there was that time, about three years ago, that i was very problematic about the health condition of my youngest son. i posted a lot on mylot and even on facebook, about his condition. one time while we were discussing, a private message came. she said she is willing to help with the diagnostic test for my son. that test needs a huge amount of money, so we really did not have that amount, and so she offered help. one day, it came, and it's a lot more, much of what we needed.
