I mentioned my secret sister in a previous post and my cousin Chandra wondered what exactly that was. (She wasn’t the only one!)
It was organized by one of the ladies in our church. She put a questionnaire in every one’s mailbox which we had to fill out and return if we were interested in participating. The questionnaire asked things like who we were, if we were married and to whom , our age, hobbies, favorite things (like bible verses, holidays or seasons, desserts etc.), things we like to collect, if we had allergies or real dislikes, and whether we had any special prayer requests.
She took them all and then everyone was given someone else’s questionnaire and that person was then your secret sister.
The idea is to do something thoughtful for her at least once a month until our reveal party in mid December.
Not only do I have a secret sister to do fun things for, someone also has me as a secret sister. Last month I was given the most unusual gladiola flower. I had never seen those colours on a gladiola before and I just loved it.
This month I received a beautiful stained glass piece and was told (in a card) that her artist friend had made it and it made her think of me! Isn’t that nice?
I love handcrafted things and it looks lovely in my side window!
It gives me a warm, cozy feeling to know someone is thinking about me.
