being loved on

Mar 26, 2011

My emotions have been all over the place this past week. Daniel’s passing has had me tearing up for over a week, I have had a severe lack of sleep, and I threw a Mother’s Blessing for my friend Sarah. All of that has meant lots of weepiness.

Someone must have known how heavy the load has been this week because when I came out of gymnastics on Friday there was a lovely present waiting in my suburban for me. Some amazing soul went to a lot of work to brighten my day. Inside an adorable stamped bag were a gazillion little packages with notes attached written right to me. This was not some package hurriedly picked up at the store, it was designed for me. Each note was about a specific thing I do. I was so shocked and so touched I just sat in the parking lot and cried for awhile. There was even popcorn! Y’all know I LOVE popcorn.

In the midst of all the little packages was a note that went straight to my heart.

Thank you for making the world a better place for all of us who have the privilege of crossing paths with you and for the many who may never meet you, but whose lives you have touched through others. May you be filled with all of the love, strength, courage, wisdom, and faith that you need now and throughout your life’s journey.

How sweet is that?

I have no idea who took the time to love on me, but whomever you are…thank you. Thank you for giving me love when I desperately needed it.
