I think that God has a way of sending us little reminders that He cares.
Sometimes they are huge big events, but other times its just something miniscule that you barely notice.
In my case today I think it was a little bit of both.
I was sent to Sam's Club for work today and was instructed to load up our "candy drawer".
I grabbed all the goods (some chocolatey goodness and jolly ranchers) and headed to check out.
Apparently they have a rule at Sam's where you can't use a Visa Credit card?
Anyways, so they wouldn't accept the company card I had and so I just asked the cashier if she wanted me to put the items back until I came back.
I was immediately surprised by the man in line behind me, "i'll buy her stuff."
Me, "No way. This isn't even for me!"
Him, "It doesn't matter, i'll take care of it."
Me, "Are you kidding?"
He proceeded to write out a check for my load. ($55 worth of CANDY!)
I said, "You know you're just paying for a bunch of lawyers to get a headache right?"
He said, "It doesn't matter, I don't mind."
I seriously couldn't stop thanking him.
So we waited for the cashier to give a receipt, and he said, "here, i'll write you a little note."
He wrote something along the lines of best wishes-courtesy of Gladys Place.
When I left he simply stated, "Pay it forward."
I know it is the smallest thing and probably so ridiculous but it really put me in awe! I've heard stories like this where someone will buy the food for the person behind them in line at the drive-thru or other things, but it has never happened to me.
I hope that I can do better to watch out for people who might need help, even if its just something small!

Yesterday, with the help of my amazing Mom we threw a bridal shower for my sister Chelsea!
It was a complete success. I actually started getting worried that we didn't have enough room for everybody that came!
We had really light refreshments: fresh fruit with dip, cheesecake, a light lemon punch (Japanese Lemon Water) and chicken salad on palm sized croissants. It was extremely yummy! I think the biggest hit was the fruit dip. It's made out of cream cheese, marshmallow fluff & lemon juice. So yummy!
We kept it pretty simple. Stuck with the wedding colors (red and teal). Frames we got at Kohls, plates, napkins and tissue paper for pom-pom at Target. Scrapbook paper for banners and centerpiece The Book Table.
It was such a good time! We got to see lots of friends and family (some that we hadn't seen in a few years!).
Chelsea & Jared are so perfect for each other, so excited for their wedding!
