During this transitional time period, I've learned about unexpected blessings. Kindness from strangers. And simple humanity.

Other less expected things can be gifts as well. A phone call from someone just to see how you are.
My ex was always more likable then I am. Kinder. A nicer person. In most social situations, I just assumed he was the one people responded to. I never thought that I might be the one they liked. That phone call meant so much more than the caller understood.
Most people measure gifts in material things. I never have. Actions speak much louder than words to me. (Big fan of the book Love Languages. Acts of service is definitely one of mine!)
