Yesterday I had the idea that for this week leading up to Valentine's Day, I should do a post a day about things I love. I only wish I would have thought of it sooner; I could have done it for the whole month of February! Oh, well. So without further ado,
Day 1: Kind/thoughtful/generous people
Yesterday I had a dear friend from my ward randomly drop by with an enormous heart-shaped chocolate-chip cookie that was AMAZING, and a whole load of baby shoes for Annie:
|How cute are these?!|
She told me she was at Babies R Us (which is a little funny, since her youngest is 11!) and she just wanted to buy some baby shoes. So she did. Big time. And Annie is the blessed little recipient.
|She rocked the reds today!|
|Every girl needs a pair of red shoes!|
|I loved my view of her on our walk to the park today!|
Since she stopped by yesterday, I can't stop thinking about how incredibly kind and generous that was of her. I have so many people like that in my life, too--neighbors who bring things over for the boys on every holiday, inspired visiting teachers, grandparents who send extravagant packages, friends who are always willing to help out. I want to be like that--I am so thankful for their examples to me.
