BLOG – GIFT DAY 217 :: thank you chocolate

5 Aug
Who did you thank today?I ask because I am finding this Card Crusade so enlightening. It has made me so much more focused on being a giver instead of a taker. 

Today, as I practiced my giving muscle, I sent my card for yesterday (since it was Sunday) and wrote out a new one for today. Yesterday’s card went out to my dear friend Amy, who has been like a soul-sister to me. And today’s card is going to a yogi I adore.

A few days ago I received this fun gift in the mail.
Chocolate!

And, yes, I was happy to be a taker!!

Thank you Kelly, I loved the surprise.
And, yes, the chocolate was melted when it arrived (but nothing a freezer can’t fix!). While it did melt it still tasted SO GOOD!

Even more important, the gift melted my heart. 

It’s not any ordinary chocolate bar. It comes with a love poem inside.  And since chocolate gives off the power of love and that all over warm feeling (apparently the flavanols in chocolate increase blood flow) I have to admit, I love it.

But, you know what I LOVE more…..
Sending cards out to people I care about. There just aren’t enough cards or days to tackle that one, but I am trying one day at a time.

And, I encourage you to reach out to ones you love as well.

  • Slip a card in your hubby’s lunch
  • Hide a card under your child’s pillow
  • Stick a card on your mother’s dashboard
  • Drop a note on your employee’s desk
It doesn’t take a lot to say thank you.
It really only takes two words (and maybe some chocolate love!).More tomorrow.

Lovemore {fearless}

      Chocolate by email is way less fattening I hear 😉 LOVE MORE to you!

    I love the sound of rain falling down outside my dining room atrium doors. Our dining room opens to a screened porch, so I can prop the doors open and not worry about any creepy crawlers coming in!! It’s a nice cool morning here in Missouri, too. Around 72 degrees. Glad you loved the chocolate bar. You made me smile when I read your blog this morning!xo

      So happy to receive your package! Very sweet of you Kelly. Your morning sounds lovely and peaceful. 😉 I am doing a little rain dance over here praying for some rain (without lightning!). Sending you love!
