The Power of a Box ...

It is truly amazing the affect, receiving a box ~ be it orange, black, brown or this blue one, can have on our day. Especially if we have been ill, or experiencing some horrific challenge in our lives. BUT there is something that is better than receiving a box....

you are asking.... let me give you a little introduction....

In my attempt to catch up with blog visits and reading of posts I missed while on vacation; I stopped in for a visit to my dear friend Mary's blog Hope-Filled Living Magazine . My visits there are always filled with admiration, inspiration and a desire to live a truer existence, Mary is possibly one of the kindest people I've been blessed to meet in BlogLand. As, I caught up with reading posts I missed this one titled Creating a Box of Sunshine really hit close to home, reminders of all the small gestures that family, friends and complete strangers had so kindly bestowed during the earlier days of my accident recovery came flooding back. Not the items themselves, but the feeling of warmth that someone cared, that they took a moment out of their day to bring me a little "sunshine" to my day, encouraged me to not give-up; to keep going.

GIVING a box that can bring a smile 
to someone's day, is truly better!!

  3. Dearest Celia,

    It certainly is heartwarming if someone is giving from his/her time to just BE there for you. When we need to be dusted off and are getting some help and love from others, a hand in our back to steady us on our wobbly path to recovery. That is more than any blue box ever can contain!
    Thank goodness, there are still many of those caring people around; far more than bad ones... That gives us courage to move on and to go the difficult track; step by step.
    Love to you,

  6. Celia,
    Your words made me cry.....thank you so much for being such a dear friend. I know that when I have been really down this past year due to my illness, your cards and emails have inspired me and lifted my spirit. Bless your heart. I just want to do the same for others who are so much worse off then me--really struggling with big health issues and depression.
