Day 3, October 3rd
Sweet Gifts … that was today’s gift! Going through this journey of depression I often feel that I need more, I need a spiritual connection. Darren and I churched shopped, well to be honest we went to one church awhile and never have gone back. We plan on checking out other churches and who knows we may just go back to the original one (at least me anyway). Today’s session with my counselor I had asked her which Bible she would recommend, I didn’t want a specific “type of church bible” I wanted your basic Bible. She recommends one and I decided to take Mama D along with me to Parable Christian Store. We browsed separately and then met at the checkout stand. I saw she had a pink book in her hand and immediately thought “Oh she must have gotten something for Rachel (my niece, daughter of Cathi Darren’s sister). As I waited in line I saw that at each register they had little candies for $0.25, I thought I would buy 2 for the two gentlemen working the registers … That was my gift for the day. As we walk to the car Mama D was commenting that I was such a sweet girl, and I not taking the compliment said naw I was just giving my gift for the day we both smiled and loaded our purchases in the car. As I sat in my seat Mama D handed me a bag and said this is for you … It was that pink book, only it was not a book it was a journal titled: Sweet Gifts Journal. I cried. That was one of the sweetest things at this point in my life that someone could have given me! It is my 3rd day and I am already having good things happen J Receiving is not part of this cycle; however it does help you receive gifts more graciously.
