Unexpected Thank You's
There was an unexpected knock on our door the other night. Brady answered it and told the person to come in - I was making dinner. I came around the corner to see our Relief Society President , Karri holding a HUGE Poinsettia.
She was giving it to me as a "Thank You" for helping out with the ward Christmas Party. WOW! I do things to help out ... not expecting such a lavish gift. I felt very honored. She also gave me a thank you card below:
I felt the love .... I couldn't believe it!
The Poinsettia was huge! I had to figure out where to put it in my already over decorated and small living room - LOL! (Not a bad problem to have - ha ha)
I decided it could be placed on the floor next to my Christmas tree... there was perfect spot just waiting for a huge Poinsettia!
Aaaahhh the love!
I also receive another note in the mail from someone in our ward - Ann. People are so nice ... especially since I thought Ann didn't like me - wow! (due to a fall out when I was Primary President - which happens sometimes with issues, complaints and not being perfect) I guess sometimes I misjudge people - because I thought she really, really had bad feelings toward me .. isn't that how it is when you don't have an on going friendship with someone you feel comfortable with? (now I feel bad for my judgements). It was really kind of Ann to send me a thank you card out of the blue.
I'm blushing from all the love!!! For me, thank you notes always lift my spirits. It's something I need to do more often to others.
I thought since I had a camera in hand, I would shoot a few pictures around my living room.
The village and nativity below.
A beautiful Nativity on the piano.
From my home to yours .... Merry Christmas!
