Receiving Project – Day 2

Day 2 of the Receiving Project and I sure am blessed!!!

If you read about Day 1 then you know that, lately, I have been having some financial struggles.  Well, today when I woke up, I noticed I had a voice mail and it was from one of my best friends.  She said she was going to be in my neighborhood later and would stop by (she lives on the other side of the city from me–30 minutes away).
Well…she arrived with a basket full of food for my pantry and fridge!!  I was  sooo touched. 
Although I didn’t expect anything, I have to say that I wasn’t surprised as this friend is the most giving person I know. I am very vocal in telling her how much I value her friendship–her sisterhood to me really–and how grateful I am to have her in my life.  We have a lot in common and she is the only one I know that I don’t have to censor myself when talking with her–I don’t worry what I say to her–I can tell her ANYTHING (and vice versa).  And she makes me laugh out loud probably more than anyone else I know.
She also gave me $20.00 and said she was hanging around with me for the afternoon so she could drive me to my part-time job (at 4:00pm), and gave me a bus ticket so I could get home at the end of my shift at midnight.  She had decided to drive me to my job because it was raining–normally I would have biked there and back. 

I am so lucky!!!  And I told her so.

I AM so lucky!!!  And blessed!
