Sometimes I really "get" the verses about being overwhelmed with blessings...live and in person.
This past week was such a time...
First, a sweet friend with a nice corporate discount offered to extend it to me for a rental car in which to drive to Dallas.
Second, Cathy insisted on paying our mutual friend back, and allowing me to pick up the tab on a few meals in Dallas. Needless to say, the meal portion of the deal did not come close to Cathy's gift...and I was blessed with some wonderful, tasty meals in our travels all over the heart of Texas!
Next, a sweet blog friend who wishes to remain anonymous, gifted me a Dundee Marmalade crock! I've admired them for ages, and had decided to buy one. Lately, I've been perusing Etsy for them, and the ones I choose always seem to be from Europe...which translates into mega-buck postage, so I had not yet indulged my fancy.
It was such a sweet surprise...and when it arrived, I unpacked it and found it wrapped up and tied with two vintage rusty keys! Icing on the cake, I tell ya.
THEN, I open my email to find I had won a painted canvas from Linda at Itsy Bits and Pieces!
My heart is so full...I was abundantly blessed with an amazing long weekend with a long-time friend I love, which included a trip to Canton Trade Days ( on my bucket list), a trip to Ikea, and pretty much anything I mentioned that I might enjoy doing. I think the only thing we did NOT do is sit still with our feet in her pool...
Thank you, sweet, generous friends who have kind hearts, amazing taste and generosity that just floors this fifty-something single woman.
Thank you, God, for lining up all these blessings so I know that I know that I know they originate from you. I am reminded that you know what and who I love, and you delight in reveal that to me from time to time.
I get it. I am loved. I am grateful. My heart is so full...
