You've got mail...
Funny...when I lived in Waldorf, I checked the mail everyday before I pulled into the garage. Now that I live on the beach and have been delivered from all my debt, I forget to check it. Lol
Last Thursday, I just so happen to check the little silver box with my name on it and lo' and behold...a mixture of emotions came over me, all in this order.
1. Gratitude: My airline tickets arrived. With God's grace, I am going to Alaska for my birthday. I cannot believe it. It was certainly a Serendipity moment for me. Initially, I had planned to drive to Atlanta to see Dr. Charles Stanley at his Church. But a week ago I received his monthly devotional which stated that he was sponsoring a Cruise during my birthday week in July. SUPER EXCITED...CANNOT Wait!
2. Disappointment: I was upset with myself. I got a speeding ticket for $125. OUCH! I do have a tenancy to drive a little faster than I should. I know it's wrong and I am working on it. I'm telling you, it's the car. When I had a Toyota Corolla, it only did the speed limit. I had that car for 14 years and never got a ticket. This FIERY RED sports car of mine has a mind of its own.
3. JOY: My dad sent me a greeting card. Oh how I love those. Just seeing them in the mailbox gets me all youthful and excited. I saved the best for last. I didn't open it until I finished my hour long walk on the boardwalk. I got all cozy and wrapped myself in my favorite throw as I begin to open his love letter :-)
There was a photo of a phone on the front and I just knew it would be something of humor since we text more than we talk...but BOY oh BOY did he surprise me. Inside was an unexpected and overwhelming love offering. I cried like a little girl. He has a way of bringing on a range of emotions. I left him a voicemail because he wasn't home at the time. He told me later that when he heard my message, my tears made him cry. Yep! I'm a daddy's girl.
Love for a great day!
