Lately, the cars in front of me at the Starbucks drive through that I go to have been treating me to my coffee and pastry. The last one was just recently, and I noticed that the license plate was from Georgia. Thanks, Georgia! I'd love to visit you someday.
The other day while driving through, the lady said to me, "you want your usual, café Americano anda pumpkin loaf?" I said, "Yes," and thought to myself, how nice of her to remember.
I received a surprise in the mail from my blog friend, Susan, on Tuesday. It was a note card with a red rose on the cover and a few humorous and special words written from her to me.
An old woman sat in the pew at church right next to me. She said that another lady had asked for her seat because she had a stroller and needed an end seat. We talked for a bit and told me she'd say a prayer for me.
These expressions of kindness remind me of graceful people who shine their light in a sometimes troubling world. They bring us a few smiles and a little laughter to brighten our days.
The planet does not need more
The planet desperately needs
and lovers of all kinds.
Maybe we can express kindness towards someone today.
We found Jess' wedding dress this weekend. It was a fun and long day searching for dresses, veils, and having her engagement dinner that evening. After trying on many dresses, she decided on two - one of them was stunning with lace and jewels on the front part of the dress. The veil she found went perfect with it. The other one was a beautiful vintage looking dress with lace. This one was like nothing we've ever seen before, very unique. She found a veil that went just right with this dress also. Her engagement dinner was that evening and it turned out very nice. There were so many interesting side dishes, a couple fun games, and her bridesmaids and Nel made it such a special night for her. So, here is the dress that Jess didn't choose.
Pretty, huh? But the dress she did choose is even prettier......in my opinion. : )
