A Special Note
I went to the mailbox the other day, much like I do everyday.
A nice envelope was in the mailbox. My name was written in nice script, so of course it wasn't a bill.
And the envelope contained a nice note.
How nice is that?
But more importantly, I had to think about what K was talking about.
And then I finally remembered that I gave her a Bible... 8 years ago.
At least 8 years ago. Might have been longer ago than that.
But it was a nice bible. I happen to be in a Christian bookstore and saw a nice leather gold leaf version of the Message Bible. I quickly bought it, even though it was more expensive than I care to buy for a Bible. But it was so nice, and I loved the Message Bible.
Anyway, I found it too cumbersome to carry around. A few months later, I found a leather one that was one-fourth the size of my big Message Bible, small enough for my purse. So I preferred the smaller version over the larger, nicer, and more expensive version.
Somehow, we needed our bibles for one of my groups. I can't remember if it was a journalling group or what. But K admired my big bible.
And I told her "You can have it! I have another one."
And I guess she kept it...
...Because she sent the nice note pictured above.
I would've never thought that someone would treasure something I'd given them all these years later.
