It Is Worth It...



It was a very cold and windy day; and I was getting out of my car in the
Grocery store parking lot. I saw her!
She was a Momma and she had her hands full!
I then realized it was her car parked right next to mine.
I just started to walk right past her, and I could just feel it.
Discouragement;
I turned right around and I said to her;
Sweetie, My kids are all grown up and I miss them so much!
I remember those days when I was so tired and weary, I thought
I was never going to make it!
But I want to tell you this!
It is all worth it...

I just smiled and told her to hang in there!

Well, when I came out I found this note on my windshield.
God has us in the right place at the right time!
May each and every one of us take the opportunities God gives us;
To
Love and encourage each Homemaker!
And to tell them this;
It is all worth it...

Good Morning Rox,
I think the sun is going to come out today. I have been warm and cozy with my word and my coffee by the fire this morning. This story just made my day. Oh to have heard someone say those things to me when I was a young Mama. Thanks for sharing it, and for being the blessing that you are. Have a wonderful day.
Love and blessings,
Pam

What a blessing you were to that sweet young girl and in turn she was a blessing to you! Isn't it just wonderful how God places people where He does? Thank you for sharing your sweet blessing!

Oh Roxy, I have goosebumps :) I know that sounds cheesy, but as I read how the Lord used you in this woman's life it just gave me chills (in a good way). Don't you love it when God gently nudges our heart to do something and when we listen, wow, what a blessing and impact to the receiver and giver.

Bless you, my friend. Hugs!

Christine said...

You acted on God's call to you.
Beautiful!
We all should listen to God when he calls us.

Ren said...

Love, love, love this! And yay for you, for listening! Many would have blown it off and kept going, but you didn't!

What a sweet, heartwarming post about how God uses us daily to encourage one another.

Have a lovely day,
Elizabeth

Jacqueline said...

Roxy, that is precious! I have done that, too, and it is really an encouragement we can give as older women who have been there. I am praising God for your sweet spirit, dear friend. Thank you for the blessings to us all :)

Vicky Hunt said...

I love this Roxy! Sounds like you made that sweet mom's day! God has a way of putting us exactly where He knows we are needed....I love that!

Blessings, Vicky

What a wonderful story, Roxie! It is amazing how powerful our words are. I always try to encourage young women through those difficult days of raising children. They pass so quickly but are so important!

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

Such a lovely story. Where I might feel sympathy, you took action. I so admire that. Thanks also for your lovely comment!

Maryann said...

We never know how our words will encourage. What you did was a little thing but what a big impact it had. We need to encourage one another when we can and it can be something as simple as a kind word. You are a blessing

NanaDiana said...

What a wonderful repayment for your kindness. We just never know, do we, when a word of encouragement can take someone from despondent to delighted. Good job, Roxy! xo Diana
