October was Clergy Appreciation Month.
I know Chris is considered "clergy" now, but it still didn't register with me that we would receive cards and gifts because of it. Such a kind thing for our church community to do! Some of the cards even had my name on them, and people wrote the most thoughtful words.
Today I was given two gifts.. just for me! Two beautiful Autumn-themed kitchen linens from Mary, and a large Ziploc bag full of Pam's famous spaghetti and meatball sauce. My sister even texted to tell me about the handwoven bag she found for me at an auction.
While we don't need tangible things to feel appreciated, they sure are a nice surprise.
