Yesterday, Maid Elizabeth returned from her job as a clerk at our local post office with a package cradled in her arms. It was addressed to Enola Gay with a return address of Nevada. The package was somewhat flat, with a typewritten enveloped taped to the back, along with an envelope containing product warranty information. HP was emblazoned across the box - and I burst into tears.
My hands shook as I lifted a brand new burgundy (the color I would have chosen) colored laptop from its box. Sir Knight sat across from me in humble astonishment at the unparalleled generosity of people that we had never met. With the entire family gathered round, I read the letter from the folks that had gifted us this wonderful tool. Their letter made us smile. It was real. It was kind. It represented everything that is best in our fellow man. Thank you.
I will do my best to put this wonderful gift to good use. I have so many blogs rolling around in my head - now I can get them down on "paper". I haven't the words to express my appreciation, so I'll use the inadequate but time tested - Thank you.
