thank you, thank you, thank you

Our wonderful EfM Bible Study Group
(with some of the most brilliant, talented folks of all ages, shapes and walks of life)

Gave us the sweetest, most thoughtful

Going Away

Surprise Party.

And they presented us with a huge bag full of indigenous North Carolina foods.

And a notebook of recipes to go with the food along with an NC history of each company that produced it and instructions to add to the book for each state we live in.

It never ceases to amaze us how thoughtful people can be. We've known this group less than a year, yet they have made us feel so welcome and so loved.

Thoughtfulness is one thing that I think it's safe to say never goes completely unfelt, unnoticed, or unappreciated.

It certainly makes me want to strive to be more thoughtful
and immensely brighten other people's days.


  1. How lovely, Courtney ! Friends are God's blessings in our lives :)

    I wish you a great and safe moving to your new house ;)



  2. The thoughtfulness of others DOES make one become more conscious of one's own thoughtfulness, does it not?.....and makes one want to be more thoughtful of others also.....The "Pass it On" concept....

    We never know what we might be doing in another's life just by thoughtful good simply putting others a little ahead of our own wants and needs...making everyone we come in contact with feel a little appreciated...

    I LOVE the different-ness of each of the people in your group....reminds me of our little Hatchechubbee Sunday school class....all ages and walks of life:)

  3. How nice! Indeed, a little thoughtfulness does go a looooong way :)

  4. Well, I think you brighten a lotta people's days with this blog, Courtney...I know mine is always a little shinier after these visits : )

    Glad you had such a great send off, Girl....

    Wishing you all the best for your new beginning : )

  5. Such precious thoughtful gifts!
    (And you inspired them!)

  6. What a great group and such a special send off! *~* makes me teary!
