We came home late from the school, and Mom Sallie called me, there was something she want to show me. Bundle of clothing. Some are actually new because they still have their tag on it. They are for me. "Santa Claus came up early!", I exclaimed.
It was Anjannette who gave the clothing. She is a cousin of my husband. I don't remember anymore how many times she brought bundle of clothing here in the house for me. I'm very happy for all the clothing she gave to me. I'm just so fortunate that Anjannette and I have the same size, that is why I became her "beneficiary". "I always buy new clothes though," that was what she told me the first time we met.
The clothing she gave to me were very useful, specially these sweaters and jackets. I did not bring too much clothes with me from the Philippines. And I just found out, it is not easy to buy clothes here in US because of my size. I wear size medium (bought from the Philippines), but size small here is still big enough for me.
Back in the Philippines, on every December, my roommate Ann and I would look through our clothing and would decide which we will give away. We do this as a sign of gratitude for all the clothing blessings that we have acquired through the year. And amazingly, after we gave them away, blessings start to pour out again. New clothing filled our closet again.
Thank you very much, Anjannette. You are such a wonderful cousin. May many more clothing be added to your closet always.
