You've Got Mail

My mail just came. The mailman brought it to my door, because I had a package. I saw the name on the box of who it came from, and I just couldn't believe it. About a week ago Kisti, who has a link on my blog, asked me for my mailing address. Kisti and I went to LCU together. We were both in Kappa, and we lived on the same hall. She is a year younger than me, and just a sweet, sweet girl. I didn't know her really well, but she is someone who was always smiling and always cheerful and had an encouraging word.

When she asked me for my mailing address, I thought maybe she was going to send me a card or something. Never did I imagine that she would send me a care package. I can't believe the thought she put into this. And I don't say all this to embarass her, but to say how blessed and special I feel to know the people that I do. She sent each of my children a present, along with the new baby. She read on my profile how I love coffee, so she sent me some coffee, and hot chocolate for the kids to have "coffee" with me too. She included a pair of red fuzzy socks for "Kappa" spirit and comfort and some chocolate "hugs and kisses".

I just started crying when I saw who the package was from and was just almost couldn't open it, because I was just so touched! Kisti, you will never know what that meant to me. You have touched my heart, and words can't describe how that blessed my day and how the gesture will continue to bless me!

I don't want to sound like a broken record, but God has shown himself to me through so many people. Ya know Nathan says he doesn't believe in God...well I have never seen God working more than I ever have in my life. And the ways He has worked have amazed me. I have had friendships revitalize through this experience. (especially in people I never would have guessed before!) And I have had my relationships with both of my sisters become something I have always wanted. I've never been really close with either of them. But I have gained so much insight from Suzanne. She is a very wise person. And Jenny, well Jenny has been my sidekick for the passed two weeks straight, and we've had a lot of fun. I am just so encouraged by others. I don't see how anyone can think there is not a God. It is so obvious, and although this world is a crazy place full of things that can really bring us down, God is everywhere. But you have to want to see him, and if you don't want to, then I don't know if you ever will. And what a sad thought...what a sad life without hope. What's the point then? There is no point. Man am I ever blessed to know God and to have others in my life who know him too.

Kisti, thanks for making my day special. And thanks to everyone else who thinks of me, prays for me, loves me, and most importantly through all of this has shown me a little piece of God in each of you!
