"Sometimes," said Pooh, "the smallest things take up the most room in your heart."
I received the most wonderful surprise in the mail last week. My dear friendAimee sent me the most thoughtful gifts in the mail. It included a bird's nest necklace, a recipe for pumpkin bread, handmade leaf coasters, and a flower pin made of old t-shirt material. I couldn't believe what beautiful gifts I had gotten. And it was a total surprise. I thought of Aimee, homeschooling her five children, her sixth child due in less than a month. I couldn't believe she took the time out to make these things especially for me and to send them in the mail to me. It made me feel so loved and thought of. Aimee knows how to love well.
Loving well is something that must be practiced. Sometimes, as in Aimee's case, it comes very natural. Other times it may not be so natural. But loving well is showing others that they are special, that they are worth something, that they are thought of, amidst the busyness of our everyday lives.
