I know the truth about how God loves me and all, but it still continues to amaze me when stuff like this happens. You know my tendency to take myself too seriously? And worry? And get overwhelmed and broody? What? You don’t know that about me? Well. I was doing all that really well the other day. So I pulled out my camera while the kids were playing outside and began to look for the gifts. Because the day was feeling increasingly gift-less. And then the mail came.

the letter

Who in the world writes real letters anymore? It spoke to the very thing that had me spinning. And it set my dizzy day right again. So thank you, new friend. For thinking of me, for being excited with me, and for taking the time to say so. Her words were a gift to me that day. A small thing to her, but life-giving for me.
