Holiday Happenings

I love the holiday season. One thing I love most is that in general people seem to be more friendly. Today I went to the post office and sent off my holiday cookies (my new tradition). I told my daughter to go stand in line why I got the packages ready to mail off. When I joined her and my son, I was greeted by a lady who immediately told me how well behaved my children are and thanked me for how my daughter had calmed down her youngest. Her youngest was crying uncontrollably and stopped when my daughter started speaking to her. Then the lady says to me, "So I hear you are shipping vegan cookies." This sparked a whole new conversation in which I found out that her youngest was allergic to dairy and so she had been vegan for a while. The lady said that she couldn't take being vegan because she had a hard time giving up red meat.

Veganism is definitely a lifestyle change and is not for the faint of heart. :) We chatted some more in the line until it was my turn and then we were parked next to each other outside and chatted a bit more. She talked about how she noticed such a huge difference in her body while she was vegan. Her acne cleared up completely. She didn't have any flare ups with her asthma and her energy levels were higher.

I should have exchanged numbers or e-mails with her. Not sure why I didn't (maybe because I am moving soon?). At any rate, I sure did enjoy our short visit and she and her family will be in my prayers.

Have you ever met someone and felt like you should ask for them info, but didn't for one reason or another? I would love to hear about it!


  1. I can't relate to feeling like I needed someone's contact info but your cookies look great!

  2. Yes, there have been many times I wished I had given them my blog address or email address but just didn't get around to it.
    I recently met a local blogger and she handed me her business card. On it she had her blog address.
    I think that's a cool idea.

  3. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  4. Hi Yolanda,
    You have a really nice site! I'm thrilled that you're serious about leading your children to Christ.
    They're blessed to have you as a mom! I was a Sunday school teacher at our church for years. Now I help teach children's church one Sunday a month.
    I've also been praying that I'd find some other Christian bloggers and the Lord has been faithful!
    I'm Tammy Real-McKeighan. I'm the news editor at the Fremont Tribune (NE) newspaper. I'm a Christian.
    I write a faith-based column called Spiritual Spinach for our paper's Faith page.
    I've recently self-published a book called "Real Spiritual Spinach - Faith for the Journey."
    I know it's shameless self-promotion, but I'm trying to get the word out. Please check out my Web site at www.realspiritualspinach.com and new blog at www.realspiritualspinach.blogspot.com
    I hope to hear from you1
