Wow. You guys. Seriously. I’m nearly at a loss for words here.
First of all, thank you so much for the encouraging comments and emails following my “Thumbful Thursday” post last week, and for sharing your own ups and downs with me. We all suffer & struggle daily with something and I felt like we had a little group therapy session together, which was made positive by also noting the “thumbs ups” in our lives at the moment.
What I didn’t expect was this, which came in the mail on Friday morning:
I was expecting my cell phone that I won on eBay, and I looked at Dennis, dumbfounded when he brought in a huge box. I was like, “This can’t be my phone, can it? They wouldn’t’ sent it in this big of a box, would they?”
He knew by the weight it wasn’t my phone but just told me to open it. So I did. Inside was this wrapped red package with a note and I knew right away it was a gift. I’m quick like that. ;) As soon as I tore open the note, tears started falling, and they didn’t stop for a while.
You’ve got to be kidding me, right? Wow. I mean, wow! WOW! Yes, this is more than a little encouragement, Jenna, thank you so much. I started using it immediately and have already lost four pounds now that I’m back on Body by Vi. Thumbs way up! :)
Now this is when things start to get really ridiculous. I mean, the blender was too much right? Who gets a blender in the mail the day after they whine about theirs breaking? But that’s not all, guys. Nope. Last night I came home from work to be greeted by this sight on the kitchen table.
A new personal CD player! In fact, the exact same one I had that broke! *tears* This is from a reader I’ve mentioned before here, who also sent me a pie carrier after she won three ribbons for her pies at her state fair using my pie crust recipe. Apparently her generosity knows no bounds! Thank you, Kerry!
Dennis told me that with readers like these, I need to start complaining that I have never received a million dollar check in the mail. Ha! :D
But seriously, how can you not feel that God is really looking out for you when he puts people like this in your life? I’ve had some thumbs downs this week but right now, they don’t matter. This is all that matters. Earlier this week, I put as my Facebook status, “Thanking God for the people He’s brought into my life, and the family I was born into. You make every day better. ♥” And that pretty much sums it up.
Your turn to gush: what is an act of kindness someone showed you recently, or the biggest one in your life?
