Some times our blessings come from people in our lives. This week, while grocery shopping a ran into a friend who I used to do yoga with in the early 2000’s. Interestingly, I hadn’t seen her for about a decade or so, however, in the past 4 months, I’ve seen her twice. The first time in a parking lot at a local drug store, and we chatted for awhile. So, it was a surprise and delight to see her again.
She asked about my restaurant job, and I told her that they aren’t opening the dining room until all the mandates are over, so,I was still in limbo, except for my clients. (And, I have gained some clients thanks to two other angels!) So, we chatted a bit, and then went back to our shopping.
About 5 minutes later, she calls my name and hands me money and said “I’m paying for your groceries this week!” Well, I started to tear up, because she was being so understanding and sweet. She said “oh, don’t cry, my husband and I are well off (as I knew), as we had a very good business and are retired now.” I was so grateful, I kept tearing up for the rest of the day! It reminded me of all the lovely friends who also helped me when I first was laid off in March in so many different ways. I have the best people in my life!!
And, what a blessing! Kindness and compassion from this lovely friend, who I was blessed to see twice these past few months! When we give and share what we have, the blessings do come. Sometimes we are the giver and sometimes we are the receiver of blessings. Sometimes they are small like that tiny grasshopper earlier this year, and sometimes they are bigger, but we must always count all our blessings, showing gratitude, and the Universe responds with the same kind of energy. (Yep, tearing up again!)
May your blessings be both small and big! ???~ Heather
