A True Blessing

Monday, July 19, 2010

I just had to share our family's blessing.

The girls and I went to the chuch building today to place our order for Angel Food (a ministry that our church is a distributor for). Since the secretary's office is small, I asked the girls to wait in the two chairs out in the hall. Well, my little one started calling her sister's name telling her there was a backpack with her name on it between the chairs. Lo and behold, there were two backpacks... one for my older DD and one for the younger.

My older's was the backpack from LL Bean (the exact pattern) that she had been trying to get me to order since we received a catalog from them about 2 weeks ago. There were two shirts monogrammed with the school letters, one had her first initial, and there were two other polo shirts. There was a pair of t-shoes, 2 pairs of flip flops, a couple of belts, a scarf, and a headband.

My little one received a pretty pink polka dot backpack and lunch bag from Old Navy, 5 polo shirts, 7 headbands, 2 pairs of flip flops, and a pair of t-shoes.

We don't know who left them there. There was no identifying note or anything. I do have a few ideas, though. Our custodian, who is also an elder's wife, came in while we were there. She had a grin on her face as big as the Cheshire Cat's. I have an idea that maybe some of the ladies got together to treat the girls with this special gift.

We are truly blessed to have such a wonderful church family.

    Yes, a church family with members who listen with a pure heart and give with open hand is a blessing.
