A Selfless Act Full of Joy

A few weeks ago I decided to conduct a game called A Bloggers Giving Game in which each person who comments to that post will be receiving something from the person that commented before them, and therefor will also be giving to the next person that comments. I am still waiting for all the images of gifts to arrive via email, but once they arrive I will post a final run down of who gave what to who :)

But the reason for this post is not to remind you all about that game, rather to tell you about the wonderful Joy who participated in the game. Joy was somewhere in the middle of commentators, and so she was not the person meant to end the game, and send me her gift. Regardless, Joy had sent me an email asking for my mailing address, letting me know she still wanted to send me something.

On Friday I received a package, and on the front of it was the stamp of Joy White. I opened it and was overwhelmed by what I had just received. Joy had sent me her Pure Joy necklace, and attached she wrote this:

  Tali-
  What a great idea, the giving tree was so much fun!
  I hope you love your new necklace & whenever you 
  wear it you are reminded to live in the moment and 
  know that JOY is all around you.
  EnJOY!

I am truly blessed to have such great, positive, supportive, and generous people around me!

That's an awesome gift!

Tali--I sent you an e-mail with images of my gift, but haven't heard back so now I'm wondering if you got it? Sometimes my e-mails from my shop go to the trash, so please let me know :)

Looking forward to the results of the game...

How AWESOME is JOY? What a wonderful thing to do and I wish I had been thinking I would have sent you something also. Not to jump on the Joy train, but I really appreciated you hosting the giving tree!!! Thanks so much Tali!! :)
