Random acts of kindness.....

a surprise card arrived in our mail box the other day......it was addressed from "Santa" but it didn't say from the North Pole....i was very curious who do i know from the town of Pacific? no recollection of anyone.....i just couldn't wait for everyone to get home..... so i opened the envelope... as i read the card wishing our family many blessings a huge smile came across my face as i saw the last printed words....ho-ho-ho....your friend Jerry.

we hadn't heard from Jerry in years! it was truly a surprise such a gift to my heart...and when Scott came home from work that evening...i handed him the card as i watched and waited to see the big smile come across his face and it did...

i couldn't believe how that little card meant so much to Scott and i...you couldn't give us a better present...it was such a simple thing for Jerry to do...then the thought came to me...who hasn't heard from us in a long long time...i was inspired to pull out the white pages and start looking up names...adding old high school friends, old neighbors and church friends to my list...know i noticed that i have a gleam on my face.... as i to wonder how they will receive our Christmas blessings?

to my dear friends here...i'm giving away two coupons.... to two lucky winners drawn.... so click on the little comments link.....leave your name and address....our family will have a drawing tomorrow night and post the winners .....





Cheers!

Carrie

Hi Carrie,
I would love a coupon - I keep trying to fit my crafting time into my holiday activities...what I'd really love is for someone to make a tutorial about how to run a household and have time for crafting without feeling like either one is suffering! :) Thank you for offering a coupon and congratulations to whoever are the lucky winners! Have a great week! Shae (aubien)
