Every so often, I like to peruse the different features that are available to me on WordPress. I decided to do this yesterday because I realized I wasn’t receiving emails for postings by many of the bloggers I follow.
Inbox wasn’t as full as I thought it should be.
At first, I thought these bloggers were not posting. That was strange, because I really liked their postings, and when I decided to follow them originally, I expected they would be posting quite a bit.
I decided to take a look at “Blogs I Follow.” Well, of course! That’s why I wasn’t getting emails about their postings. I had to edit those bloggers on my list, and manually allow their postings to appear in my email inbox! Duh!
Today, when I peeked into my inbox, I found many more emails from those “missing” bloggers.
Love the quote.
Today, I am the recipient of thoughtfulness.
Opened up my inbox to find 2 eCards. One from my daughter and one from her best friend. Beautiful New Year wishes. They are totally unselfish people. They have their troubles (who doesn’t?), yet made me feel wanted and appreciated. Made me happy
Then, I got a phone call. A new friend (lovely woman) asked me to join her and her husband and 3 others for early New Year’s dinner.
Then, my sister called. She was in Costco, and had the list of items I had asked her to get for me when next she went there. A little problem: the pistachios I wanted was “slightly salted;” however, they had only “shelled” or “salt and pepper.” I thanked her – “no thanks on that.”
The point: the greatest gift is when someone (in this case, 4 people) gives of themselves. Thoughtfulness – being the recipient of – is a source of happiness that is priceless.
A simple “thank you” is all I can muster up right now.
Have a great day! And a great New Year!
