so every so often in life, you get blessed. someone does something nice for you, or you find 20 dollars on the ground, or you see someone you haven't seen in ages, etc etc. we all get blessed once in a while. sometimes all it takes is a kind reminder that there are GOOD people out there, within all of the bad things that go on in life. encouragement and kind caring words do a lot more for a person that most people seem to realize. a few days ago (sry for the delay, had to get the digi) i recieved a gift in the mail from Cyn, who is from Singapore. i will probably never meet her, (although i wish) and i wish there were things i could do for her to show her how much she really means to me. i've never recieved a gift like this before, so it definately set me back, and i ended up shedding a few tears in front of a few friends. corny, but insanely true. i'm a gal with a pretty rough exterior, and when someone can break me down from that far away, you know they've done something right. i'd just like to let everyone know, Random Acts of Kindness DO exsist outside of the comittee as well, and i really want Passerby to know how much i appricated this gift, so i am showing it off (proudlyyyyy) and telling everyone what a wonderful person she is. thank you for being a great person, and knowing a few little steps in life to take, to make someone elses day better. you really did touch my heart. thank you so much. Jes here are the pix of this gorgous token of inspiration: and if anyone is wondering why i recieved this encouraging gift, i was having a rough time, and started a few threads not too long ago about how worried about my life i am. i've been really down lately, and thanks to the encouragement of all you, i'm slowly moving back up in the world. thanks Cyn, thanks TPF. u all.
