While we were away at the lake, a very special piece of mail came for the kid. While it was a piece of mail I’d been expecting, I hadn’t expected the sender to go so far to make it such a red-letter letter. The community at the MLPTP really is outstanding, and this is just one example of how fabulous people there are to one another (and to us).
Here in Saskatchewan, we haven’t been able to get the new My Little Pony, Friendship is Magic trading cards. One wonderful member of the Trading Post sent me what she called a “pity pack” made up from some of her doubles and triples. And I’ll admit, kid-kid was jealous. So when another member of the TP offered up some cards that she’d gotten that were bent? I quickly asked if she’d consider sending them to Lily-Ann, she happily agreed.
Now, just receiving the bent cards would have been enough to absolutely thrill the girl… but this individual went so far above and beyond, she made Lily-Ann’s week. She sent several extra cards, a couple of cutie mark tattoos, a letter she wrote from the point of view of Princess Celestia, and she did up the envelope as if it had been hand (or hoof) delivered by Derpy herself. I should have recorded the girl digging into everything – her squeals of delight really had to be heard to be believed. And I was so touched that this person, who only knows us online as fellow pony folk, would go through so much trouble to do something special for my girl. It really was an amazing thing to do.
Thank you so much! This was such a sweet and generous thing to do. I know Lily-Ann will never forget the day she received mail direct from Equestria. (((hugs))) Forget 20%, you’re more like 80% cooler than the general pony population! Especially to one absolutely thrilled little girl. 😀
