Day 8.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving....

I'm giving thanks this month each day on my blog.


Day 8

I'm thankful for unexpected surprises.

It has just been one of those days.

After I left work today, I went to pick up our mail from the post office since I hadn't been there for a few days.  Bills, a couple of magazines and junk mail were jumbled in our box.

There was also a yellow card, which meant I had an oversized package.

"Huh, I wonder what that could be."

I took my card to the counter, and the nice postal worker handed over a carefully wrapped box with "fotoNovella" as the return address.

I wasn't expecting anything from Shannon, but you can imagine my delight when I unwrapped the package to find a sweet note and picture of Clint & I on a wedding day.

"Fill life's pages with friends, family, happiness & laughter." - Shannon

A "just because" package.

A thank you, how are you, thinking of you, just wanted to say hi, package.

 And on a day that needed a bright spot...
Shannon brought a smile to my face.

Thank you.

It's the little things in life that count.


PS - I've said it before, and I'll say it again.  Shannon is an amazing photographer.  If you have a life moment that you want captured expertly....I would recommend her in a heartbeat.
She's a story teller extraordinaire, and we're thankful she's our friend.

Here's to running into each other more often on our country roads.  :)


What are you thankful for today?
Join me (and a whole lot of other people) in giving thanks.
On a blog, on Facebook, a private journal, or a thought kept in your head.

I bet you'll be thankful you did!
