Today I was a bit irritated and down when leaving the house, but I checked my mailbox and noticed a postcard. It was from London and it brought a HUGE grin to my face! Instant happiness thanks to kind words from a friend! :-)
I picked up Michael because we were going to McDonald's. When we arrived there I showed him the postcard.
Me-- "Look, Michael, I got this today from London!"
Michael -- "England?"
Me -- "Yep, one of my friends sent it to me and surprised me!"
Michael -- "You have friends from all over the world, don't you? I have friends down the street and you have friends all over the world!"
Me -- "Well, you have family in Venezuela."
Michael -- "Yes, but we were talking about friends, not family."
Hehehe..true. Well, that was such a nice surprise and really cheered my heart.
After getting the postcard today from Louai, thoughts from Proverbs such as these came to mind:
24 Pleasant words are a honeycomb,
sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
Because definitely his postcard lifted my spirits!
