Don't you just love it when an ordinary day turns into an extraordinary one just by someone else's act of kindness?
Well, I LOVE it when that happens to me!
This past week I did an ordinary, everyday thing.
I proceeded to open the box...
I smiled big when I realized what was inside.
School is on the horizon and you know what that means? Pencils! Sharpened ones. I love the smell of new pencils. Inside the bag was a brand new box of sharpened colored pencils. Such a simple gift, but it brought back great memories from grade school for me.
Along with the pencils, a sealed envelope waited patiently. I unsealed it and pulled out a handwritten note. I love it when pen and ink meet paper. It's a lost art. Cursive words filled the page. Cursive. Who does that anymore? Each word, elegantly penned. The words gave me pause.
The coloring begins!
I am thankful for this person who, in the midst of life's ups and downs in her own life, would take the time to think of me and give such a thoughtful gift.
I am so blessed. Friends and family make ordinary, extraordinary. Thank you my friend.
