I just had to share with you my Birthday Blessing.
A couple of weeks ago, I celebrated my first birthday without Mom. It was definitely one of the hardest days since she passed away.
I knew that I would not be receiving a “birthday phone call” from her, or any special little gifts like she would always get me.
It was tough.
However, I had won a giveaway the previous week at Melissa’s Heart and Home. It was a FABULOUS giveaway!!!!
And ironically, the huge package of goodies arrived at my doorstep on…
MY BIRTHDAY! What a blessing!
To receive such a wonderful gift, when I was missing one from my mom.
I had to smile as I opened it. It was almost as if Mom had sent it herself. Now I know that wasn’t really the case, but I do think God can bless our lives in unexpected ways sometimes. It definitely touched my hurting heart!
Melissa had everything wrapped so beautifully with little curled ribbons on everything…
It was quite a loot! Look at this…
A table runner, fall cheese spreaders, a book on chocolate desserts, 3 fall dish towels, truffles, a candle, a rooster plate and cup, a vinyl “welcome” door sign, and a decorative acorn that didn’t make it in the picture somehow.
I had fun decorating my “new” kitchen with all of my goodies.
Thank you Melissa, for such a wonderful giveaway!
And thank you Lord, for my unexpected birthday blessing.
