Just this week, a precious friend dropped by with a gift for me. A gift that she couldn't possibly have known how badly I've wanted. We had never talked about it before, but yet, there she stood with this gift in hand. We call this "a God thing" around here, and just leave it at that.
As a homeschooling mom, I'm always buying books for my kids, but usually I just dream about the books I'd love to have. I go about filling up my wishlist on Amazon with all my dream books hoping that one day I'll need just one more item to make their $35.00 free shipping fee, but alas, I always have waaaaay more in my cart than funds in the bank, so my wishlist gets pushed to the side with a sigh.
