Generosity

I really don't even have words for how grateful I am.
Every day more blessings are sent our way.

Last night, a friend brought me two bags of produce.
I was at the Farmer's Market and just bought WAY too much.
Will you take some of this off my hands?

A friend I haven't seen since high school wrote a post about the shop after purchasing enough to pay next month's water bill.
My Paypal account is now $500 wealthier.
That will pay for our Cobra insurance that starts today.

Zak has received about 30 emails with referrals to job contacts or references.
Some from people we hardly know.

Even my brother and his wife purchased from the shop last night. Under normal circumstances, I would refund their money along with a note that they are being silly.
But we aren't in normal circustances, and I am quickly learning that people WANT to serve us and I should allow our family to be the grateful recipients of such service.

It will our be turn to serve others again soon.

Today, Julie from Joy's Hope (of Cora's Playground Messy Flower fame), posted a giveaway for me. A giveaway that had been arranged before the illusive layoff.
Knowing that Zak has no job and I am supporting our family by sewing, she wrote the nicest post that I've ever seen.
We've never even met.

I am so grateful
It's another day of my cup running over.

Enter the giveaway for an I Spy Quilt here.

I am so glad that your family is being taken care of in unexpected ways. It is an honor to host a giveaway for you. Seriously.
