Wonderful Gifts . . .

 Got to stop by the Post Office to retrieve a packet.  
Saw a gentleman get off his bicycle and carry a package inside . . . 
We were both early and enjoyed some conversation. 
 It was The Best.  

He used to bike all over the country . . . 
He told me about a trail hosted by the Park System along the East Coast . . . 
He'd take his kids, 
camp along the way . . 
 enjoy nature and community events being held . . . 
I'd never heard of this . . . sure sounds lovely.

We spoke about current events - that hurt many of us at our core.
He shared his recent opportunity to visit Normandy.
Just the word brought tears to our eyes.
Imagine two people meeting in a Post Office and sharing like this.

We spoke about Times and Hope and Faith.

When the Post Office Officially Opened, he insisted I go first.

My packet was unexpected . . filled with Treasure . . . 
So was the Conversation.
Blessings Abound.

Oh yes, he wore a hat like this:

  2. I miss having as many encounters with people I don't know keep my social distance. Looking forward to when we're able to chat and stand closer than six feet apart. Take care and thanks for stopping by Buttercupland.

  3. i think it is so tough. we had a grocery shop today and a lady past saying "I'm smiling" and a bit of a chat about wearing these masks ...i am a person who loves to share my silliness and smiling .. so i feel kind of down about these differences but i will try to stay happy ... it not be this way forever. i hope?!? i miss all the smiles and chatting.
