But that's not all!! Today, I had an early morning taking back lingerie to Victoria's Secret [side note: NEVER order anything from online unless you are 100% sure it will fit!! They won't take it back in stores.]. The employees were 15 minutes late opening the doors but I was so blessed waiting outside for those 15 minutes. I met a woman named Jeana [not sure of the correct spelling] while waiting and told her the story about the lingerie - how it was a Christmas present from my mom but too small. "I need all the lingerie I can have because I'm getting married in May and this is all I have so far! I really hope they'll take it back!" So then I shared with her our plans for missions and our super short story... that we're actually getting married exactly a year from our first date. [First non-date date I suppose... but still. It was May 29th all the same.] I told her how I only dated a guy for three weeks and if I didn't know he was the one, then I'd let him go and keep waiting.
She said she hopes her daughter has the same love story as I've had. Gosh, I wish that for every woman!! It's been a beautiful journey thus far and I know it's only going to get better! Anyways, the doors finally open and she lets me in line first. The lady at the counter stopped me right as I said "online" and told me she couldn't take it back. Mrs. Jeana asked if she could look at it, asked me how much it was and said, "Gosh, there's a girl at my church getting married in May. I wish I knew what size she wore. I would give this to her and buy you a whole new lingerie set!" This time my insisting won and I told her thank you but I can probably just exchange it online. Regardless, she completely blessed my morning. Who does that anymore? People with the most precious and generous hearts. That's who. I am so thankful for people like her that God smacks us into just so He has the opportunity to brighten our days through His children.
So I ask you, world of bloggers - how have you been blessed today? I'd love to hear your stories too!
