The envelope arrived Friday night, showing up in our mailbox here at the new place with no return address save a rubber stamp design of a dragon. Inside, a card. Inside that, no text or explanation -- simply the gift.
Is this a (belated) birthday present? Did someone see the brief, throwaway mention of my current financial status in my post about the move to California, and decide to take pity on me? Is it a housewarming gift? One way or another, I'm very grateful; it will be a great help with moving expenses and to pay down the credit cards.
I hope to be in a position where I can pay it forward in a year or two.
