treatfully thankful

This morning as I look along the kitchen countertop, I see an empty container. While I was gone on Tuesday afternoon, our neighbors walked over with some Christmas goodies. This has been an annual tradition for them and a blessing for us! A large container of a variety of baked goods which contains the best peanut brittle ever, a container of homemade candy, a container of dried fruit.

And yes, in a little over a day the large container is E.M.P.T.Y! My kids devoured everything in it! They are definitely feeling deprived as I have done very little holiday baking yet this season. It will no doubt be a baking marathon for a day or two early next week and they will all be grinning from ear to ear :-)

Remember that on Tuesday morning I had written about doing simple acts of love to bless someone else.....
then Tuesday afternoon this gift arrived hand delivered. We were definitely blessed! I love these life examples that confirm things that God is prompting me to live out and which my children witness and will hopefully develop into their own lives.

So my heart is thankful for the blessing of a neighbor's gift which arrived in perfect timing! How about you? What's your heart thankful for this day?
