But God had other ideas for me yesterday, and I spent the rest of the day being blessed by many small kindnesses.

Second, when I got to the car park on time, and was feeding pound coins into the machine, a young woman stopped on her way out and rolled down her window: "I have a ticket here that's valid till midnight - do you want it?" Yes please - thank you!
Third (and fourth), when I shared some very intimate good news with two friends, both had tears of joy in their eyes for me.
Fifth, another friend, who eats gluten-free herself, had baked me the prettiest little Christmas cake in the world.
And finally, when we were sharing out stories about the gift of difference in the Encounter group, I felt so honoured to have *been* the different person who had unknowingly helped someone else to grow spiritually.
By the end of the day, I felt so light, so blessed, so very grateful. Yes, it is blessed to give, but also so blessed to receive.
