Hello Erne,
I just now received your b-day message, BTB. You had just sent me a pair of New Balance walking shoes, so I didn't suspect I'd receive another pair of shoes and a ream of copy paper from you.

Does my message on the receipt make me look like a rube? Or my following wishlist make me look like an ingrate?

I don't want to invalidate buying on impulse, but isn't communication the key to understanding first thoughts? You wrote: "I know food is your immediate needs—but I chose to send you something that will last longer." I guess that goes to show as you wrote: "My first thoughts are usually intuitive and yet I don't act on them," was spot on.

"Don't be dismayed" further indicates a first thought that was intuitive. But don't you fret! Dismay implies that one is disconcerted and at a loss as to how to deal with something. I don't stay disconcerted for long before I deal with it reasonably. In this instance, as with life in general, communication is key. So my message on the receipt and the wishlist afer that merely intended to communicate the dimensions of reality from my point of view, for whoever sent me that package.

Every situation in life is an opportunity to teach or learn better ways of handling life, right? Live and learn. You are a sweetheart for thinking of me though. Thank you.

Be blessed.
