The Gift of Thoughtfulness



It doesn't take much to make me smile normally, but this past week was rough.  There's nothing worse than waking up and realizing our puppy wasn't going to be waiting for us while we ate our breakfast. 
Yesterday, though, I went to get the mail and came back from the mailbox beaming. A package came and it was addressed to me! {always fun to get something in the mail, right?!} In the package was a sweet and very thoughtful gift...an angel holding a puppy.  Tears of good memories, happiness, and an overwhelming sense of someone else thinking of me, hit me all at once.  Shasta is our little angel, so it's a perfect little figurine. She's on my desk and to say I adore her would be an understatement. 


I'd give anything to squeeze our doggie like that one more time.


Maggie, the sweet blogger who sent it to me... I cannot thank you enough for this kind gesture. You truly knew how to make me smile. Thank you for the joy you passed on to me. There's nothing like a bloggy friend to cheer you up and gift you with something you'll treasure forever.


I'm going to try to pay it forward and do something out of the ordinary for someone I come in contact with this week. Won't you join me?! Together, we can make someone's day by gifting them with thoughtfulness!


Happy Sunday!
Love,

  11. Michaela, I just want you to know how sorry I truly am for your loss. You know I've already told you that and even prayed for you. I guess I just feel the need to say something b/c it's awkward for me. You've probably seen that my family has just begun our own journey with our little golden puppy. Her name is so similar to your own sweet girl, too, though I certainly never realized that before. (My husband chose her name.)
    I hope that we have as many precious memories as you did with your Shasta. I lost my childhood dog 10 years ago just before my 1st son was born, so I know how difficult it is.

    Thinking of you and glad that someone was so thoughtful and brightened your day. You certainly deserve it. :)
