perfect timing

Last week, on a day when I was feeling absolutely horrible, Niel's mom came by with a mail delivery. Amidst the stack of bank statements and junk mail, I saw a card envelope. I just knew it was a card from my mom. I grabbed for it, and saw her very-familiar, feel-like-home handwriting on the envelope. I opened it to read:

"Few things are worse than being in a hug position with no one to hug. Miss you!!!"

Although I burst into tears, I was so glad. So glad to have a mom who loves me and misses me. So glad I have a God who navigated the mail system to get the card to me right when I needed it!

Thanks, Mom! Thanks, God!
