I am learning that the Lord puts certain people in our lives at certain times so that they can (among many many other things) help us and serve us. I am learning that I have to be able to let people do that when the opportunity presents itself. I feel so blessed to have such truly generous and giving friends in my life. It is SO humbling. I received a very generous gift from a good friend from high school. We were very close through Jr. High and into high school, but I have not even seen her since we graduated. She told me that I had been in her heart and on her mind for some time, and that the lord inspired her to do it. Amazing. Seriously. Amazing.
