Not long ago one of my favorite bloggers, Steph at Adventures in Babywearing, held a giveaway that reached right through my computer screen.
As soon as I looked through Christina’s shop, I realized she had been touched by grief and I also wanted one of everything.
I was the first entrant, making my chances of winning that much more slim but somehow I did.
I knew exactly how I would spend my giveaway certificate and sent an email to Christina with my choice.
Through several exchanges we shared our stories of grief and the place where we find ourselves today and I found the perfect spot for the piece I selected.
But I was not prepared for the package that arrived at my door.
It was much heavier than the sheets of card stock I expected.
And it was full, a care package for my heart.
Two beautiful prints, Christina’s gorgeously illustrated book “The Gift”, greeting cards, a framed print, postcards and handcrafted hearts, all sent with a beautiful card full of warm words, just for me.
I gathered everything in my arms and began finding homes for it all.
And I tucked away the large envelope that was placed at my doorstep that morning, a reminder that people are good, new friendship is magical and a caring hand, no matter how far away, can lift you up and pull you through.
I can’t thank Christina enough for her generous gifts, if you have a moment visit her store and browse her gorgeous work and then…
Do something unexpectedly nice for someone today, you never know just how much they might need it.
