Overwhelmed by an act of kindness

Finding my muchness - Day 11

Yesterday Kevin brought in the mail and I was surprised to find a small package addressed to me. However, I didn't recognize the name on the return address.

I tore it open and to my surprise, inside was a card and a small box from a blog reader! The card was so sweet and uplifting and was intended to brighten my day. And it did that more than words can even express.

I opened the box and inside was this necklace. I shot a photo with my new camera and it actually captured the beauty!


I was speechless! It was a beautiful snowflake necklace with a little "M" for Maggie. It also had a beautiful blue bead.  It brought tears to my eyes. 

I recently wrote a post about the impact of being kind to strangers but this package had to have been sent before I even wrote that. Not that it would have mattered if it hadn't. :)  This was so powerful and I am so touched at the gesture. I want to pay this forward, and I certainly will.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Lara!

I found my muchness in an incredibly kind gesture from a stranger.
