I had checked my mail everyday for a couple of weeks.   I usually only check my mail about once a week and only if I remember, but my days were now filled with anticipation.

One night I woke up around four in the morning.  I couldn’t get back to sleep so I drowsily checked my email on my iPhone.  I saw that I had one email.  I opened it up and saw that it was from WG saying I won.  I signed off and went back to sleep thinking what a great dream.

I woke up later that morning and went off to work.  Sometime during the day I checked my emails again and there it was.  It wasn’t a dream after all.

I’m not sure how I discovered Therapy Tales.  Probably by googling something about therapy or through someone’s blog roll.  I’m really grateful for the blogging community I have discovered.  There are many reasons why I enjoy reading other people’s blogs.

I have found through this blog along with others, that many of the things I experience in therapy are common to many.  I’m not alone.  I particularly enjoy the sense of humour that Therapy Tales brings to the (often frustrating) things I experience in therapy.  I catch myself in front of the computer laughing and saying how true as I read WG’s toons.  It often brings a much-needed lift.

One day I went to Therapy Tales and noticed that there was a Valentine’s contest.  All I had to do was comment to be put into the draw.  I did knowing that I would never win because, well, I never win.

So imagine my surprise when I received the email.  In fact I was rather stunned.  I think I read the email at least ten times to make sure it was real.  And that day I started checking my mail even though I knew it would be arriving from across the pond.

Once again I went to check the mail on February 16th and in among the bills I spotted this.

Yay! the much-anticipated envelope finally arrived and only two days after Valentines. But I didn’t open it right away.  I put it on my desk where I could look at it through out the day.  I wanted to savour the moment and quite frankly I still wasn’t sure it was real.

The next morning the time had finally come. I opened the envelope.  My first Valentine’s card as an adult ever.

Thank you Wounded Genius and Therapy Tales!

    What a lovely Valentine’s surprise! I’m going to check out TT. I like reading therapy blogs for the same reason – I see I’m not quite so alone as I thought.
