Something In The Mail - Again!

I'm such a show-off. Show off about my new watch, my new notebook and now - show off about a souvenir I received in the mail! Bear with me. It's just I'm always happy when someone think of me.

In the mail today was a key chain of a vial filled with star sand from Okinawa. The "sand" is actually the tiny skeletons of sea creatures, but it resembles grains of sand. Star sand is said to bring happiness and is a very popular souvenir there.

I am so blessed with having great blogging friends who are not only friendly and supportive but also generous. All the gifts I received from these friends have a special place on my worktable, so that I can look at them and think of all the great friends (many of whom I have yet met) and feel happy, just like this star sand is said to bring.

Kak Lela, thanks for the souvenir. Maybe someday, we'll set foot in Okinawa and go to the beach ourselves.
