Last week I was inspired to give. In my gifting bag I had a handmade peach broach that I’ve gotten from my summer trip to Savannah. It’s very pretty but not my style. I didn’t know whom to pass it on to, until now. I decided anonymously give it to my Pastor. I wrote a quick note, sealed it in an envelope, and placed it in the mailbox.
Easter Sunday I went to church. During announcements Pastor held up the pin and the note. She asked the congregation: “Who blessed me?”
Naturally, no one raised their hand. She went how to explain how pleasantly surprised she was to see the broach and note in her mailbox and wanted to publicly thank the person who did it.
Ummm… that’s why the letter was anonymous, Ma’am.
Anyway after reading the note attached to the broach out loud she said “Thank You” again and went on about the service.
Internally, I did a happy dance inside. I was grateful I was able to put a smile on someone’s face and pass the broach off to someone who will use it.
What are you grateful for today?
