A blessing came my way today
A patchwork trophy to display
I did nothing to earn the gift
But it gave my heart a welcome lift
A gift given with no thought of return
A selfless act that all could learn
To share freely what we can
No agenda or self-serving plan
To see a need, feel a pull
Giving to others when life is full
A touch, a coin, a simple word
Only the joy of giving is heard
Yes, a blessing came my way today
Not an item for display
I’ll find someone with true need
And with joy I’ll plant a seed
I wanted to share this today because we never know where or when a blessing is going to come our way. Today I was sitting in my shop and saw a friend that had recently purchased my book series come in the door. She reached out and handed me an envelope. It contained a note that was a blessing to me. This is a short version of her message.
Just finished the third book and I hope there is a 4th in the series. You have a beautiful gift of writing and each book was read in one day. I felt drawn into the stories and they were a joy to read.
God Bless you and thank you for sharing with us.
This is better than a check. This validates my writing and my purpose. Today you are my blessing.

I, too, love the Hero’s series and hope there is another book. I also agree with what you said about positive comments sometimes being better than a check. It’s great to know your writing has brought joy to someone. It’s one of the things that keeps us writing.
Thanks Hazel! I am excited to continue my writing journey.
