My day yesterday was a truly blessed day! I apologize in advance for the long post, but I just need to tell you all about it!!! Ok, here it goes:
The first thing that put a smile on my face was when I received a fun surprise from an old friend. She sent me a cute little stuffed animal that we used to share when I worked with her. She is so thoughtful and I just love her fun spirit!
In the afternoon, I went to Starbucks to get my favorite hot chocolate (with a shot of caramel - you need to try this if you haven't - so, so, so, delicious) because it was a cold day in Minnesota. To my surprise, the person in the car in front of me at the drive-thru paid for my hot chocolate. Why? Here is the letter I received from this wonderful person:
"Hi! You don't know me, but I've just paid for your order. No gimmicks - it's just something I felt like doing. I heard about people doing things for others on the radio station KTIS at 98.5 on the dial. They call it "the drive thru difference." Maybe you'll feel like doing it for someone else! I hope this encourages you today!! Signed, the stranger in the car ahead of you."
Later in the evening, I was checking blogger and noticed that I won, not ONE, but TWO of the giveaways during the Creative Charms Farewell Hop!!! I am so excited! I love, love, love Creative Charms!!!
And finally, my super, uber, exciting news! To my surprise, I saw the latest issue of GingerScrapStreet Magazine and there was my Cabin Memories Shadow Box!!! I have been published!!! I am so excited and can't thank K Andrew at Getting Cricky enough for this wonderful surprise! She inspires me and is such a wonderful person. You must check out her blog if you aren't already following her! You can check out my project in the magazine here.
I will pay this blessed day forward. I will definitely be buying some one's drive-thru order and maybe do this two or three times this week!
Thanks for letting me share my day with you all. May you all have a very blessed day!
