Infinite Blessings

Apparantly the Lord chose the last few days to remind me of how insanely blessed I am.  It's actually really hard for me to write this post right now because I am finding myself at a loss for words.  Crazy, huh?  Me.  No words.  I guess that just goes to show how humbling it can be when you find yourself smacked across the face with truth.

I am loved beyond measure.  My life is amazing.  And I have been blessed abundantly.  That's the truth.

Over the past couple days, I have found things on my doorstep and in my mailbox that I did not ask for, that I did not pay for, that I did not order.  It started when the baby food containers showed up with absolutely no indication whatsoever of who had sent them....and kept going from there.

This is just a small sampling of the gifts that have been sent to me in only a couple days.  I couldn't fit all of it in the photo so I had to pick and choose.  Scrapbook punches, personalized blog cards with a photo of my kids, a handmade card, handwritten notes, a gift card, a scrapbooking magazine, crayons for Isaiah, coloring books, and the list goes on. 

Why was all this swag suddenly dropped in my lap?  For absolutely no reason other than that I am blessed.  Every single one of these out-of-nowhere gifts is attached to someone who has blessed my life beyond anything I can describe.  Once again, I am stumbling to find the correct way to punch into my keyboard how floored I am that I am so lucky to have people in my life who would make a card just to say I'm thinking of you.  I have a friend who took time out of her exceedingly busy schedule to make custom cards just for me, wrap them in tissue paper like a present and then handwrite a note to me.  I have family who suddenly chose to grab a gift card at Target for "whatever I need" and picked up gifts for my kids too.  I have been blessed with still more people who rewarded me for doing nothing beyond choosing to change the way I eat.  Seriously.  Wow.

You all know who you are and I know you all are reading this.  Let me make myself very clear.  Thank you just doesn't cut it.  I want you all to know that these gifts, as precious to me as they are, mean nothing in comparison to the amazing gifts I have received in all of you.  What did I ever do to deserve such blessings as you in my life?  I am infinitely blessed because of you and you can be sure I'll be sending up some serious praise to our Father for reminding me of how much he loves me....through all of you.  Thank you from the very bottom of my heart.
