Sisters, the time has come. Our #LOVEBOMBs are on their way out to their recipients. I'm waiting on one final address and they will all be complete.
What started out as a grand idea that I immediately regretted turned into something completely wonderful, challenging, tiring, uplifting and fufilling. What was a grand idea and a complete stretch to bless five ladies turned into blessing six ladies with a surplus for another planned blessing in the month of July.
Its really easy to get caught up in the process of this whole operation. The emails, the advertising, the packaging, the gifts - It has been a complete breath of fresh air to be reminded that these are people. ladies. with lives. lives that they are living while we become busy little bees and organise themselves.
I am excited for the next few days. The NZ post system is fast. I know that even as early as tomorrow one of our Sisters could be receiving a box on her door step. She might not have even heard of us (although can I let you in on a secret? At least one of our ladies has definitely heard of us. She may or may not be reading this! SURPRISE!), she might be surprised, turned the box over and see "From The Sisterhood"
Who is The Sisterhood? I imagine suspicion will arise. She might open it then and there, pulling out the tissue paper, greeted by a box filled with gifts just for her. Confusion. I imagine she'll go through its contents and come across a card addressed just for her. Inside a jewellery voucher and a hand written, personalised letter. I hope then as she reads those beautiful words comprehension will dawn.
I'm praying she will feel special and loved. Not because she needs it but because we want to give it.
If you are of the praying type please spend time praying for these beautiful women who are hardworking, inspiring and someone who we can celebrate! If you aren't, please think some nice positive thoughts towards them :) Love love love. Be filled with love.
And thank you. Thank you. Its because of you that this has happened.
Over the next few days I will be sharing what is in each parcel, the letter that was included and a little bit about each of the ladies.
