A few things....I have five daughters, my "lucky" number has always been 5, the word TRUST has five letters. Even as I try to keep myself from fretting over the future days...let me share this...so far-
1. My BFF over at Finding Normal gave me this last week (somebody tell me how to do the linky thing)
2. Today, local radio station was submitted our family by one of my friends for a Christmas wish, they are giving us dinner at Texas Roadhouse for four, seven tickets to Kerasotes theatre, McDonald's gift cards, and a 25.00 gas card
3. Today, Finding Normal gave our family some Christmas gifts and along side a 50.00 gift card and cash in an envelope....she's a sneaky little elf.
Many things have been happening to us in the last few days that are just blowing my mind. Did they know I was fretting over having everyone home and not being able to do anything bc we have no money...and that's ok, but boring for the kids and here we go...movie tickets, dinner out, gas card...did anyone know that my freezer is almost empty and I'm scraping dinners together at night...here you go...money for food. I'm at an utter loss. It is just an amazingly humbling experience. In my mind I think I can never repay such kindness, perhaps I can someday pay it forward. We are so fortunate and as grumbling as I know I must sound, I am profoundly grateful.
