Thankful - Rachel Curtis Larsen

About 20 years ago, I sort of began my downhill spiral into marriage failure. It was not an awesome time. At all. I broke, and didn't heal for about 20 years!

One day, I opened an envelope that I received in the mail. The envelope was full of Laffy Taffy wrappers. Just the wrappers. Accompanying the wrappers was a note from a Miss Rachel. She simply said that she was thinking about me and that she hoped the jokes would cheer me up. They did! And, I never forgot that small gift from such an enormous spirit!

Since that time, I taught her youngest in Nursery. Mr. Jonah was my buddy. I could not get enough of his feisty personality. Miss Rachel is so much better than she thinks. This girl is beautiful, talented, super smart, completely practical, and an incredible mother! I am so thankful that for a moment in time she blessed my heart and my mind.
