A few weeks ago
or maybe it was days ago
I posted the photo of my beads.
who hails from ICELAND
told me she wanted my address so she could send me something.
well, today I got a package in the mail
with the volcano
that no one can pronounce
that messed up the flights for weeks
It took no time at all to get here
and this is what she sent me....
but first you have to know about this young lady.
We met on Flickr
as you do!!
and through posting comments and such
we became what we call
We've flickrmailed a few times
and I found out
that she is leaving her homeland to go and live in Norway.
Her husband is there now getting things ready for his family to go and join him in a few weeks
where they will start a new life .
Svana.....isn't that a great name!!
is the mother of five beautiful children. FIVE!!!
She has been packing their things in boxes
and making sure that everything is done and ready to go.
She has been very busy
as we can imagaine
when she saw the beads
she asked me to send my address
and told me how excited she was because she had thought of something she wanted to send me.
I got the package today
as I said......
a box of cards
with inspirational sayings
to make us all better people
from the Hidden People of Iceland.
I LOVE folklore!
These are my favourites..
I'll post better pics later....
and in a bag
from the land she will soon be leaving
to start a new life with her family.
she sent me a piece of her homeland
and I will treasure it for ever.
Thank you Svana
for your sweet generosity
for taking time out to think of someone you have never met
I wish you and your family nothing but
happiness health and good fortune
when you get there
send me a photo
of all of you
standing infront of that great house
smiling, so I know you're happy!!!!!
(I won't post it if you don't want me to
þakka þú a þúsund sinnum minn sætur Iclandic Víkingur Prinsessa
I have to go
I can't see through the tears!!!!
