Overwhelmed

...by the kindness of friends. Barb just dropped a BOX of food off for us. Unannounced. No reason, but to be kind. She knows nothing of our financial struggles. And, actually, I totally feel like we don't deserve it (or need it as much as others might). We were so wonderfully blessed yesterday. I just went grocery shopping. I was able to pay a bill that I had been waiting on. And now here is this surprise box of food for us. God's people are amazing. I will put this food in my pantry (shelf in the playroom) and use it as we need it. Maybe God is stocking us up for a dry spell soon. He always has a plan.

i love these moments!

when i returned home from having my first baby my parents'-in-law had paid a speeding ticket we had gotten 3 days before he was born. and laid it on our coffee table with red writing "paid". that high water mark will stay with me always.

thank you, also for being so open. it's so good to know that i'm not alone.

Wow. That's so sweet. I love unexpected blessings! And we got another one today... a check in the mail from my grandparents. They seem to always know when we need a boost!
