an unexpected delivery


I arrived home from work last week to find a huge box with MY name on it. I opened up the box and there was a Bath & Body gift box filled with lots of goodies to pamper myself. This is just one of the items that was in the box, Cherry Blossom. I thought to myself, it's not my birthday or anything, then I read the card attached to the box. It was from my sweet wonderful bloggy friend Jen. She said she was proud of me for going to Curves and taking better care of myself. She wanted me to pamper myself. There was aromatherapy bubble bath and lots of cherry blossom products including fancy colorful striped footie's. I can't tell you how much this meant to me. It arrived at a time when I most needed a pick me up. I believe that God plants little cherry blossoms in our lives, even if we have never met them face to face. I don't have a good sense of smell since having nose surgery over 25 years ago and the true miracle of this gift was when I was pampering myself I could smell a wonderful aroma of cherry blossoms like never before. It's now become one of my favorites. Thank you Jen for this very thoughtful gift....and it's not even my birthday!
You are a blessing! And a beautiful person inside and out.
