"I received a package with not one but 2 autographed books
Last month we celebrated my sister Heidi's birthday for the entire month. I offered to give away books through a few different contests: write a review on Amazon for a chance to win one of my books, post a picture with one of my books in it on Facebook and tag me in it for a chance to win, or take advantage of downloading Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey and When the Waves Subside: There is Hope to your Kindle.
Well one of the winners, Tricia, won the photo challenge because she inspired the contest with the photo below of her precious and beautiful Sasha I saw on Facebook earlier this year. No one posted a picture and tagged me in during the month of September so I gifted a book to my inspiration for this contest. Tricia has been an ongoing encourager for me since I announced my book would be released and more so since its release this spring.
I was tickled to bless her with a book and then teary when I asked which book she wanted and she said, "Hi Lisa! I already have a copy of where's Heidi but I want another one autographed :) I can't wait to keep it forever and share the book with my little boy when he grows up!!!" I was a mush. Little did Tricia know I had a little something for her and that little boy so instead of sending her one autographed book, I sent her two. One of mine and one by author, Elaine W. Miller. Elaine's Splashes of Serenity for Drained Moms, is a collection of devotionals to inspire, encourage, and uplift moms. I was excited and hoped Tricia would let me know when the books arrived.
I never expected to see the photograph above posted on Facebook with Elaine and myself tagged in it. I cried again, I'm like super mush lately. Thank you Tricia!
I am humbled, touched, overwhelmed, & simply put...blessed because of your joy and excitement. Thank you for encouraging me over the past months and especially for today. You don't even know what a blessing this was today and someday I hope to share why.
I pray you and your family, this includes Sasha, have a blessed and fabulous weekend and that you find time to enjoy a Splash of Serenity when your sweet boy sleeps.
My hope was to bless you yet you blessed me ~ so it was a double blessing, don't you think?
What unexpected blessing did you receive after blessing another?
