This Took Me by Surprise!

August 8, 2017 3:11pm CST
Hubby checked the mail today. Of course we had the usual junk mail to sift through. I spied an envelope in his hand addressed to me. I couldn't figure out who it was from because the address was hidden by his hand. Then he asked who Coral was. I smiled and said "a dear friend" as I brought up her picture on Mylot to show him. I opened the envelope and found a birthday card. Thank you @CoralLevang you made my day. Thank you for being part of my Tribe!

Firstly, I am glad that it arrived and that it was a pleasant surprise to you! :-) You are quite welcome. Secondly, I did NOT even realize the correlation between the butterflies and your "stage name"... *laughs* I had the card and thought it would be a lovely one to send to you, not even thinking of "Elusive Butterfly"... LOL I guess it was serendipity ... meant to be! Thirdly, thank you for the sweet mention and all of the nice comments left here, though it is certainly makes me a little embarrassed to read all this. And lastly, I hope you showed him the attached photo. It's a much better likeness. *winks*
