I am thankful for the heavy envelope in the mail filled with money I received this week. There was no outside address so I didn't know why it was so heavy or what was in it. As I sat down with a cup of tea at my desk and opened the mail this one was first as it intrigued me. It was in a bright red envelope with the word Blessing on the back. Well when I opened it I had to smile it was from a very dear friend and former employee Christopher. Taped inside the card was lots of " cheer up nickels " and shiny pennies. He had put the saying a penny saved is a penny earned, and if you save it , it is a government oversight.LOL
When Christopher worked for me and I had one of those days where nothing went right or someone was sad he took their hand said a prayer, gave a hug and sent them to the beautiful fountain out front and told them to act like a child smile and throw money in the fountain. To see the joy well up in some people or have them say "yes the Lord is taking care of me but I must give the problem over to him and have faith ",was wonderful. For me I would slip our throw the money in and take my mind off all family, work or everyday worries for the moment. Christopher was the first at my door when I was sick with orange juice , or a card, and the one to help me load the moving van for my husband and I when we moved the first time. We still exchange cards, BDay cards, letters and cheer up and his usually have a trinket . I loved how he sent the as he called them cheer up magic nickels and pennies.
I am thankful for the Lord being in my families life, and his blessings.
I am thankful for Christopher and all my friends , and the new ones I meet everyday.
I am thankful for all of you who read and comment it is like finding a penny on the ground what joy at the blessing.
I am thankful for my wonderful husband and my children. I love each of them for their gifts, talent, and each in their own way. But I am especially grateful for the sweet devoted love of my Sir Nick who sang me a special Birthday and Mothers day song this year and thinks I am a hero no matter what I do , cook, bake or help him with. It makes my day.
Thanks to Iris for hosting this event.
