Humbled

Last week, I received the sweetest, most awesome gift in the mail:   


a gift certificate for a house cleaning.  

Ser.i.ous.ly.

I teared up. 

So kind.  So appropriate.
 
Someone took extraordinary compassion on me and sent me the most thoughtful gift accompanied by the most encouraging note. 

The other incredible part:  it was sent anonymously. 

No one wanted credit for this gift. 

No one wanted to be recognized as sweeping in to save the day.  (because really:  a lifesaver!)  

No one was seeking pay back or gifts in return.

I was so humbled. 

On my last post, it wasn't intentional to pour my heart out seeking sympathy or praise--rather, it was to check in and justify the blogging absence. 

Yet, you awesome girls and some anonymous giver went out of your way to pour in encouragement. 

Wow.

I am so very blessed by the body of Christ God has surrounded me with.  (again, preposition?)

Humbled.  Encouraged.  Motivated.

Thank you.

BTW on the back of the frosted shredded wheat cereal box theres a dad playing with his kids. I think the dad looks A LOT like Cody. You should check it out.
