Tonight I attended a girls night ornament exchange party 🎉. I was running late and still had not picked out an ornament that I was going to take. As I left the house I ran through my mind all the stores between my house and the location of the party. For some odd reason I decided on Wal-Greens. Weird pace to stop for an ornament, but that’s what I was being pulled to do. I walked up and down the Xmas isle and really couldn’t find any ornaments! Then out of the corner of my eye I find one single ornament left on the shelf. So I scooped it up and went on my merry way.
At the party, we played a game where we pass around all the wrapped ornaments. Once the game ends, whatever ornament you were left with at the end was yours to keep 🎁.
My 🎁ended up in the hands of a lady by the name of Andi. Andi was genuinely moved and somewhat shocked once she unwrapped the ornament❤️.
She later found me to let me know just how special the ornament was to her. Two weeks ago she lost a very close family member. There was a particular ornament that this family member had hand painted a ☃️ on and Andi was going to bring it to the party for the ornament exchange. Before she was able to retrieve it from her family members home, the home caught 🔥and everything was destroyed. Even the ornament.
Well, the hand painted ornament that was destroyed in the fire 🔥 was the exact same ornament I had bought for this exchange and coincidently ended up in Andi’s hands out of 16 people who were playing the game.
What a beautiful 🎁 from her loved one in spirit. Now that’s a sign!
Merry Christmas 🎄
