“Kindness follows light…”

I have NO idea who did this for me—but if you follow me, PLEASE know that I’m SO thankful…😭💞

.

I came home to an awkward-looking package on my doorstep after a beautiful day out with my mom and brothers (much needed quality time).

.

When I opened it—literally 7 of my FAVORITE things were inside:

.

1. COOL SOCKS (Anyone who knows me knows that I am a fanatic for cool and uncommon yet fashionable socks).

.

2. POTTER (J. K. Rowling is a role model and distant mentor that I’m already claiming—what she’s done with an idea she had on a train; turning it into a book and film series that has touched hearts abroad, assisted in defining a culture, and that will live on forever is breathtakingly inspiring).

.

3. LIBRARY (I remember not enjoying reading much when I was young, mainly because I felt forced to read; usually to get “accelerated reader” points for English class. But, one particular night perhaps in middle school, a switch went off in my mind while I was reading “Huckleberry Finn”—I couldn’t stop reading until I finished it. Since then, the public library and Barne’s & Noble have been two of my dearest friends).

.

4. POE (This one literally made me tear up—in early middle school, it was after reading “The Raven” that the thought first entered my mind to make an attempt at writing myself. I did a “fan-fiction” of sorts of the Raven and allowed my teacher to read it to the class. I was so nervous that I stood outside while she did it. When I came back in, everyone was applauding—perhaps out of pity, because I’m not even sure it was that good, lol. But in either case, it was a critical moment for me. Poe is my all-time favorite).

.

5. A NOTE (This means more to me than any of it probably—handwritten notes are one of my “things”; if I ever write you something by hand, it came directly from my soul and I HIGHLY value you).

.

6. TIME (The fact that someone took a moment out of their day, and money out of their pocket to give me something is humbling on so many levels).

.

7. A THOUGHT (“Kindness follows light”…this will ring in my soul for days, weeks and years to come).

.

Thank you, and may you receive 1,000 fold of what you’ve given me:

🙏🏿💫
