Special Timing

Has something ever happened, that just happened at the perfect time, even though it was unplanned or maybe was suppose to happen sooner or later but didn’t? I had that moment recently.

This past week my grandmother passed away. She was amazing, one of my favorite people in the whole wide world. The worst part wasn’t her actual passing (because I know where she went: Heaven!!!! And I’ll get to see her again. She’s in no more pain, can see again, and has the amazing honor to meet her Lord and Savior, Jesus), but having to know the suffering she went through her last few weeks of life is what really got to me. It could have been worse, but it’s never easy to see or know that a loved one is going through a painful time.

Well, one of the days right before she passed I received a package in the mail. It was a day I was really down because my mom had told me that the only thing she could understand my grandma say was “help me”. I just wanted to hop on a plane and go help somehow. But, I couldn’t. Now I know it might seem silly, but the package in the mail helped me that day. It was full of super cute hair bows and pins from a lovely lady named Lisa.

She had tried to mail them earlier, but it didn’t go through the first time. So even though they came later than anticipated, it was perfect timing. Receiving a sweet precious thoughtful gift in the mail for my daughter gave me a smile and reminded me of the amazing ways that God can use people. It helped make that bad day better.

Then, the day after my grandma passed I received another gift in the mail, totally unannounced from the lovely lady, Heather, behind Simple Analogy (See the first picture? that’s the awesome journal she sent me!). Again, just another reminder of the love and kindness that people can operate in and not even know the impact they are making.

Receiving things might seem like an odd thing to have blessed me so much, but it is on of my love languages and it totally speaks to me.

So thank you so much ladies for bringing some light into my dark days and for being blessings. You never know when you are led to do something kind for someone the impact it will make on their lives. Even if it is just using your talents to make a little something for someone.

ps…. these were not given to promote their stuff to sell, but I would like to give them some recognition because they blessed me so much.
-Lisa doesn’t have an online shop, but if you would ever like someone to make you some pretty hair bows, you can email her at zippyflowers@gmail.com

    I’m very sorry to hear about your grandma. Just remember where she is and who she is with! That’s the greatest feeling and knowing you’ll see her again.

    IN August of last year I lost my grandpa to Glioblastoma. we had less than 5 months with him from when he first got his diagnosis to when he passed. This has been one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to deal with. Be so grateful you had friends and family to help you thru. They are the only thing that keeps me going.

    I’ll be praying for you!

    so sorry to hear about your grandma. I’m sure she’ll be missed. I hear you on being ok with death. When my grandpa died I was so happy for him. Free from the pain he’d been in and home in Heaven!

    I am so sorry to hear of the pain you experienced being away from your grandma but I rejoice with you that she is in the arms of her precious Savior, Jesus!!! And I think God using these people in YOUR life reminds me how intimately mindful HE is of all of us. SO your blessing blessed me and reminded me of His character. Not to mention your lovely character too. :)
