Had I Only Known.

So Saturday the Attorney General came in from the mailbox and I had a package! I had a package! Do you know what that means???

It means that either the two shirts I ordered from off of eBay just arrived (yes, I do that.) Or my granny just mailed me another "care package" filled with cartoons she clipped from the paper, a coupon for Raid, half a block of cheese and some stamps. You have to love getting stuff from her in the mail.

But I was wrong. People, I was wrong.

I had received a gift from one of my new blogging buddies. My new friend from Lulaville had sent me a gift that she found for me to use during my pregnancy. Here is the book she sent me...


How great is that? "Lula" thought enough of me to send me a gift. Which tells me she either really wants me to have a faith-filled pregnancy, or she wants me to shut the heck up. I'm not sure which, but really, who cares...

I mean, had I known that starting a blog would get you gifts from perfect strangers I would have started one YEEEAARRRSSS ago.

Because I am not above accepting gifts from strangers. Or stalkers. And personally, I put Lulaville in both of those categories.

So Lula, Thank you. I appreciate your gift more than you know. I also appreciate you seeing that book and knowing that I needed it. I'm not sure which I like more - the book or your emails (that haunt me day and night.)

Love you and thanking God for your kindness, my friend.
Melissa

If you would like for me to leave you a sweet message then please send your gifts to my home address.

Oh, I kid.

You don't have to send a gift. Maybe just some coupons for...oh, I don't know...chicken...that sounds nice right about now. Maybe some KFC coupons. Or the other half of that cheese block might be fitting.

Are you listening Granny?

Don't you just love meeting other moms through our blogs. I had the same sweet thing happen to me. My bloggie friend Kerry from Texas sent something to me in Ohio. Check it out here.

I don't know what's going on with your blog.

You might need to "Upgrade to Pro today!" or something because all I am getting is this message all over your screen that says Photobucket and Bandwidth Exceeded.

Unless...it's just me.

You can erase this comment if you want. I just wanted to let you know.

This is why I love this blogging thing. I never knew when I started a year ago it would be so awesome!

Lula is such a honey. What a wonderful gift!!!

Kelley said...

Sweet, sweet Lula! How thoughtful.

I prayed for you today.

Amy said...

That was so sweet of her to send you a book!! You better start readin'! Hey-because of your history are you going to see the doctor more during this pregnancy? That is my question for you to answer on Friday! Um..yeah, something is totally wrong with your background..better check with whoever made your blog for you! I had to highlight the words to read them!

Karen said...

Awww ... that was so sweet of Lulu !!! She strikes me as being a really nice person. :-)

BTW, saw the messages about your page looking weird. Looks fine from here. No problems at all.

Adelaine said...

Awww that is sweet!!!

Never heard of that book before but I'll be sure to look it up the next time one of my friends finds themselves preggo!

Kimberly said...

Such a sweet gift! Its fun this blogger connection isn't it?
From here, I see the weird photobucket bandwidth thing too on your background...hmmm...

I know you don't need any measly award from me, but I gave you one anyway. Come by and pick it up.

Melissa said...

Wow, that's awesome! Lula is such a wonderful friend! Our church is praying for you, Melissa!

I wanted to let you know that I can see this weird wallpaper all over your blog, too. Is it like a sixth sense? "I see wallpaper! :0"

What a wonderful book to give (and receive)! I've been thinking and praying about you. This weekend was filled with reunion fun, so have fallen behind.

Merrie said...

Friends are such a blessing from God, aren't they?

Lula! said...

Wait...this post mentioned ME? I can't read it, can't read it. Photobucket wants you to upgrade to Pro today, due to exceeding bandwith. I was able to make out the comment part, then came here and was all, "Why are these nice people saying nice things about me? 'Cause Melissa never says nice things about me!"

Did you tell everyone I died from lack of Julio's consumption over the weekend or something?

Just kidding.

But I do want to read it. I do, I do, I do.

Lula! said...

Oh, wait--I can see the book now. So this means you got it. Hooray.

I'm totally not a stalker, people. I send goodies in the mail, y'all! :)

And Baby Will Make 4 said...

I can't see your blog....something funky is happening with photobucket!

BTW, I gave you an award. Please stop by and take a look. Also, don't feel like you have to pass it on, only if you want to. I just wanted to let you know it was out there.

Breanne Vasquez said...

How sweet - and again you cracked me up.

Angela said...

Whatever, you know you aren't kidding! That Lula is a sweetie!

Rhonda said...

Well, just for that, I'll have to start stalking Lula also! What's good for the goose and all that! She sounds wonderful and sweet and thoughtful, and ... well, I'll just have to head over there and find out for myself.

As for you, Melissa ... Be sure to check my blog tomorrow. I am handing out my awards, and you just MIGHT be the recipient for tomorrow....

Vicki said...

I happen to be the proud recipient of a wonderful Lula gift as well. Although it wasn't a blog gift and it was before she was all famous and only going by her one-name moniker "Lula". She gave a sweet CD after I had my second child. She's very thoughtful like that isn't she?

Wait a minute? Are you worried about her being a stalker? Did you give her your address or a P.O. Box? 'Cause you may just find her knocking at your door one day. Don't worry if you do, y'all would have a blast together.

Rhea said...

What a sweet surprise from Lula!!

Swirl Girl said...

Lula is so sweet isn't she?

A bloggy friend indeed.

Melisa said...

Yay, now I can read the entry. But now I also realized I must be doing this whole blog thing wrong if no one is stalking me or sending me gifts...hmmm....

Kelli said...

Thats really sweet. Another good book to read is Supernatural Childbirth!

Lula! said...

OK, I finally read it. Sniff-sniff...it was all sweet until you got to the "stalker" part. Here I thought our shared love of Lost & the Lord was the bridge to eternal hugs and happiness.

And darn if I didn't offer to man your merchandise table one day. That has GOT to count for SOMETHING.

Sigh...

DysFUNctional Mom said...

What a great book!

Angela said...

LOVE the book! I will have to get a copy of that whenever we get pregnant.

Still praying for you. Love and hugs!

Z's Mom said...

I'm just getting a chance to catch up with all of my blog buddies this week....what a sweet gift! I love it and I hope you are feeling okay. Well, actually, if that thing about morning sickness is true....that it means the pregnancy is really sticking....then I want you to be throwing up your breakfast every morning....cuz that's how much I love ya! :)
