I want to tell you about a little thing that happened today. I went to church as I normally do every Sunday. But today after church, I got into my car and I noticed an envelope in my purse with my name on it. Someone had slipped it into my purse without me even —noticing! So I took it out and opened the envelope. Here’s what the letter inside said:
Dorothy, (that’s my actual name by the way lol)
A year ago, an unknown gentleman paid for our lunch at a fast food restaurant, and I have been waiting for a God nudge to “pay it forward”. God says it’s time and you can use this with affection.
-Another unknown friend.
P.S. Someday you can maybe “pay it forward” too.
Inside with the letter was $20. I sat there in my car and cried. I couldn’t control the tears. I felt so incredibly blessed. And I have no idea who to thank. But I did thank God for this mystery friend. I can definitely use this money for gas in the car or to buy lunch.
After I stopped crying, I called my grandma’s house to see if I could visit because I knew that she and my uncle would be returning to Florida soon. My uncle answered and said they weren’t doing anything so that’s what I did next.
Grandma was so bummed to hear that I had lost my job. I didn’t ask, but she proceeded to write me a check for $100. I couldn’t believe it.
Two incredible blessings in one day. I’m going to miss my grandma and uncle so much when they go back to Florida. They’re leaving on the 28th of this month. I’m going to go visit at least one more time before they leave.
Today, grandma made chili and my uncle and I watched football – the Lions beat the Green Bay Packers! My uncle was so happy about the turnout of that game.
I had a nice day. I hope you did too.
Wherever you are in this beautiful world, I wish you peace, love and happiness.
