On the kindness of friends

  
I have to take a moment and awknowlege this kindness that was done for me by a friend, anonymously. It touched me deeply and I can’t let it pass by.

Saturday evening I came home from work and found this in the mail for me.  One of my friends ordered it for me and sent it to me anonymously. It is a zine from a woman in Austrailia and it is fucking amazing. It’s subject is self-care and it is exactly what I needed at the moment as I’ve been working through a little bout of depression. When I opened it and realized what it was I sat on the couch and cried as I was looking through it. I ugly cried. I was so beyond touched. I was touched that someone thought to order this for me. I was touched that there is a beautiful soul living on this Earth that (hand) made this zine for people going through a hard time. And the idea that a friend sent this anonymously is a huge lesson for me as well – that they left the ego out of it completely. It’s a lesson I really need to learn at the moment. 
Thank you, kind, thoughtful friend. Thank You, thank you, thank you.
