Topic tags/keywords: gift

i just want to say thank you
to my dear friend MADS
i had sent a box for his daughter mathilde

not knowing that mads had sent me a gift as well
which i just received yesterday
from amazon

(it may take a bit to read it though
as i don’t read DANISH)

just a joke here mads lol

and it had a nice note on it as well

the preface says it is part of a trilogy of hugos work
I.E. ;

well as you may guess by now mads and i share some similar things
both in our health and our outlook in life
and in PM’s and e-mails
keep each other ‘centered’ when the need arises

thank you my friend
you have done it again

you are a true gem

thank you all for your help too
and have a great year !

Enjoy David.

Victor Hugo is one of my favorite author.
I fell in love with his writing after I read his novel “Les miserables”.

No I did not read it in Danish :):):) (big smile here).

You are a really special man, I know we are many here that agree on that, a man with a pure heart, and these are rare.
Yes after our wrintings I thought you could need some travel for the thoughts here in the winter, so I wanted to share this book with you, and so I found a US seller and got you one since I guessed my Danish version would do no good… smiles.
Then few days after you tell me a gift was on it’s way to Copenhagen and this made my smile even bigger, sometimes life is in a beautiful balance, some call it yin yang.
Now I hope it will bring you on a wonderful travel and that it will give you strength and smile.
Best thoughts my friend with the deep mind and heart,
