Random

I was on the receiving end of a random act of kindness.  My friend signed me up to receive a "care package".   It showed up in my mailbox yesterday.  

A gratitude journal was in the package as was this message:

You are awesome, kind and loving.  
Life can be challenging at times. 
One single act of kindness 
is all it takes to turn things around. 

I have to agree.  Yesterday was a long day.  I was on the go, go, go all.day.long.  I hadn't stopped to appreciate anything as I darted in and out of stores while trying to cram as many errands as I could in a short amount of time.  When I got home, the kids, the laudry, and another round of chores demanded my attention.  When I finally slowed down long enough, I remembered that I hadn't opened the mail yet.  When I finally opened it, I was left speechless.  

I stared at the journal cover and couldn't look away.  Each quote reminded me of someone I love or of some event in my life that has taught me a lesson.  


I love every single thing that is written on that cover.  

Breathe.  

Do What You Love. 

Dream Big.  

Never Give Up.

All of that.  Every day.   All day long.  Amen.
