I have thought about that very night several times in my life and especially around Christmas. I would tell myself that maybe, just maybe, God has chosen me for something special. Something to be noticed for but not something to be famous for.
When I wrote my post on New Year's Eve I have to tell you what happened to me when I saw the handkerchief I mailed to Amanda Buckland. There it was on the table next to her in the interview she did on her local Fox station. I burst out crying. When I think about the fact that I could touch the heart of this woman who lost her family in a tragic fire I had to get down on my knees and thank God for blessing me. In my mind I figured that she would be so overwhelmed with sadness and receiving so much mail that it would be months before she saw the handkerchief that I sent to her. I know that when people are grieving they often will stay away from the cards they receive because it hurts too much to read them. But she had the handkerchief right next to her and it hit me real hard.
So I went right to my blogs and posted about this. I thought that I had to share this with all my friends, I wanted them to know how my heart felt. But what I realized is that this is between God and I. He knows my heart and that is all that matters, it was personal just like my STAR.
MAY GODS BLESSING SURROUND YOU DURING THE NEW YEAR
If you have time please go over and visit Theta Mom and read her post. It's short and sweet and I wish I had thought to do it. (it is my favorite movie)
