Tuesday evening I had a good cry on Dan's shoulder about how mediocre I feel. "I'm not good at anything. I'm not a good housekeeper. I'm not a good mother. I'm not a good wife. I have no idea what I'm doing working with the youth at church." [You get the idea.]
Then yesterday I opened the mailbox and found a letter addressed to me. Inside was a card and an adorable little coin purse.
The card said:
Megan, I was in one of my favorite spots in the world just a bit ago and saw this little thing and it made me think of you and your style. Plus, it gave me the opportunity to tell you how much I admire you and your outlook on life. Over the past little while I've had the chance to read your words on your blog and get to know you even more. There have been many times when the way you look at life has made me change my perspective for the better, and I just want to thank you for that. You are such a strong woman and I cannot believe all the stuff you tackle on a daily basis. You are so gifted in so many ways...it inspires me to seek out my talents and try and magnify them. Anyway, I just wanted to hopefully brighten your day a little and to let you know how apppreciated you are for just being you.
Your Admirer and Friend.
Thank you, Friend, you really brought a smile to my face--that was a real "mood swing."
