I admit it. I was feeling a little down one day. It seems like everyone had been sick. All the transitioning at church.....people moving.......searching for a new preacher.......Late winter blues......taxes........Life seemed hectic. Rushed. CRAZY. Which is really a normal day for me. I made myself drive into town to the post office to get my mail. Which usually means, I collected the last few days compilation of bills, mail order catalogs from places I can't afford, and junk. But, wait. I had a card that said, "DEAR BOX HOLDER....YOU HAVE A PACKAGE." OH... I said to myself. And promptly got in the line of our 1 window post office to collect. I got GOOD MAIL! My very first GOOD MAIL. Do you think I could wait until I got the 4 miles back home to peek?
It was so official to see the precious note from Holly. I was so excited. She is one of my D's BFF'S. And she is P.R.E.C.I.O.U.S.
Well, when I got all the way home, I worked for hours to set this up. Seriously, I did....but I am mental like that. Everything kept toppling over when I would get it just right. But, it was way too cute not to share. This girl is super talented. She MADE these cards that I will hate to send off. Everyone was "Oh this is my favorite." They were all my favorite! You know?
And then there was chocolate. Not just any chocolate either. Dark chocolate is HEART HEALTHY. Did you know that? Not, thigh healthy. Just heart healthy.
And then she reminded me of the real reason to live. In these cute little fortune cookies. What a day. Thanks Holly. I love you!
