One of my colleagues was on vacation last week. When she returned, she brought the sweetest card.
Well, I am glad I didn’t pee my pants. After all, I had a venti latte on the way to work.
But even more sweet than this card, was the gift. She gave me matching Coach coin purses. She knew if I only got one, Princess would claim it as her own. I would never see it again. Lost to the purple purse.
I have been struggling with several different things in my life, and sometimes God sends notes just when we need them. And today it was in the form of a funny birthday card that poked fun at my uncontrollable bladder and a gift filled with thought. I needed some thoughtfulness in my life today. I took note God. Thanks!
I also was in a frantic assault on my desk today. I couldn’t find a set of receipts to do some expense reports. Every time I go and get organized, I lose stuff. What made me think that pulling the receipts out of my purse, putting them in an envelope all together was a good idea? For heavens sake, now I have lost all of them. Stupid me.
However, in doing so, I dropped my black and pink notebook. Spilling out came these.
Notes from my girlfriends at church. These gals have become my rocks over the last four years. Last month, when I went to Atlanta to compete in a national discussion meet for young farmers, they sent me off with words of encouragement. And notes.
Well, these notes were so special, I wanted them with me at all times. So, of course I tucked them into my trusty black and pink. And today, when I was borderline tears, they literally fell in my lap.
Note taken. Quit stressing and pray.
Found the receipts at home.
Today that was noteworthy.
