When was the last time you were caught speechless...in a good way? For me, it was this evening.
I arrived home to a surprise package from a friend with whom I recently spoke. I was puzzled and intrigued by the contents of the unexpected package.
When we spoke, I told her about my recent trip out of town for my mother-in-law's memorial service and how I was excited to take a book with me to read with all my down time in the airport and on the plane. I wanted to read Daring Greatly by Brené Brown. (It's been on my to-read list FOREVER now!) I hunted and hunted for the book for a few days, but couldn't find it. Finally, the day of the trip, I had to choose a different book. I ultimately chose The Surrender Experiment by Michael Singer, as I ran out the door to catch my flight. (I wrote a little about the book in yesterday's post.)
She was so interested in Michael Singer's book that she went to the bookstore that night to buy it! She also thought of me...
Seriously?! Wow. How blessed am I?
There is NOTHING more beautiful in life than dear friends and family. The fact that my friend bought a book that I mentioned in a fleeting moment during our conversation and sent it to me was more than I could handle. I was overwhelmed by her kindness and innate ability to connect with me across the miles.
Not only did she send me the book and a card, she also printed a quote she thought I would appreciate. And I do.
Cheers to you, my friend. I am grateful beyond words. Your kindness will never be forgotten, and will return to you with great abundance.
Be open to what comes.
