We are Grateful!

WOW
Absolutely Fabulous Evening...
This is SUCH a GREAT life!!
I am SOO present to Miracles!!!
So here's how it went tonite...
AllStar team here, but of course...
Steady flowing no-problemo-of-any-kind night.
Only 2 tables were open & everything was smooth sailing,
like the type of experience you have on a sail boat when the wind is just right...
PURRfection in every way imaginable AND I forgot to AHH!
MIRACLE... ARE YOU READY??
DO YOU ALL KNOW, LOVE & ADORE BILL VOGEL???
I DO, SO MUCH I CAN BARELY DEFINE IT...
(I am driving a new car that is one year old that was Bill's & is now mine, yum)
(p.s. that is a miracle but there is MORE)
Bill hands me his credit card & buys a $1,000 gift card with no discount,
cause he will use that for his food
Then he wants 3 more cards, 2 for $500 & 1 for $200.
I ring up his credit card, t
hank & acknowledge that this is $2,000 going into our thriving business' future.
He then hands me a $500 gift card & says that...
"this is for anyone that can not afford a Gratitude Bowl".
I said " you know what I get to do with this card Bill?"
I get to ring up a $500 I Am Grateful Bowl.
I said that a woman gave me $100 for people who could not afford Grateful Bowls & Terces said, "Anna get that $money$ in the till, because people are going to get fed regardless". Essentially this is what evens out all those $1 Grateful Bowl contributions.
Not only did Bill tip the scale on the highest donation to the I Am Grateful Bowl yet
& not only did he bump my sales up $500,
he did it with the love & pure generosity that has a woman like me moved beyond tears,
to the heart of the work that we do in the world.
When you give freely, as we have with our I Am Grateful Bowl
(Thank you Ryland for creating this)
what we receive is beyond what we thought possible...
