Those Unexpected Gifts Mean The World To Me...


I was expecting an Amazon delivery today. A single box. When I got the notification that our items were delivered, Lisa went outside to check the mail and grab the box. I was in our home office. On the way to the kitchen, Lisa asked, "Did you order other stuff from Amazon?" 

Ah. No.

I got up and followed her to the kitchen. 

There was our box from Amazon and a shipping envelope from Amazon.

The box contained all of the items we were expecting. 

The shipping envelope contained a gift bag with a note. 

I was baffled.

Inside the gift bag was a beautiful box that contained 2 sets of chopsticks and chopstick resting pieces.

They were a gift from a beautiful lady.

I have known her since high school.

She was a couple of years ahead of me.

She was also the recipient of one of the Holiday ornaments we made this year to spread Holiday Love and Cheer.

I was speechless.

And, that doesn't happen often. 

I posted this photo on my personal Facebook page to extend my gratitude.

Her response...

"You are very welcome. You are always doing so much for others. I wanted to do something for you for a change, and the chopstick challenge intrigued me! lol

When I saw them I immediately knew they were you. The Phoenix especially.


I got a bit teary-eyed.

These chopsticks are absolutely perfect.

The box that the chopsticks came in is displayed on the shelf in our home office. 

I will be using these chopsticks frequently.

And embracing the sentiment behind them.
