♪♫ I got a box full a’…box full a’ Sparkle Shine ♫♪

Saturday, I got a notice in the mail that I had a package. I wasn’t in a hurry to pick it up. Honestly, I have enough stuff to review and I’m back peddling so if I don’t get it, I don’t have to do it, right?!? But the work horse in me told me I had to stop by the leasing office to pick up my package on the way to Walmart for our weekly grocery shopping adventure.
I’m glad I stopped because it was a pleasant surprise. I didn’t have to review anything. I didn’t have to write about a single thing. I just had to open a box full of sparkle shine. It was a box from my friends at Collective Bias and it was full of sparkles. I opened it in the parking lot, standing by my car, with my kids in tow…big mistake for this emotional mess. I immediately pulled out the HUGE card you can see above. 
Then I saw the sparkly contents of the box. The bomb! How many sparkles can you fit in a box? Apparently….a LOT!
Then I started reading…right there in that parking lot. Big mistake for an overly emotional person! These people who pay me to be me…were thanking me! They were loving on me and they were APPRECIATING me! Appreciating me for just doing what I’m contracted to do because they are awesome like that!
And there were personal notes from people that I admire and love dearly even though this is a “work” relationship. These folks are awesome! I’m honored to be “working” with them all!
But…sappy moment over! Just when the babies had thought I lost my mind because I was standing in the parking lot bawling like an idiot…I saw THIS! Jay, our IT genius who can’t seem to play kick ball without a hospitalization style injury, made me giggle through my tears. Nesticles you ask? Don’t fret over them! Know that I’ve earned plenty and am the only 400 club member. I’m proud of all of my accomplishments and take what I can get. Do my nesticles mean anything? Heck NO! But I’m proud and I feel accomplished!
So what’s the point of all of this nonsense? Probably nothing! But honestly getting a box full o’sunshine can make someone’s day! If you feel it, do it! You might just brighten a life with your silly gestures. Today my life is brighter and even more sparkly. I will cherish my card and enjoy using all of my sparkly goodies (oh and the kids aren’t complaining much about the candy either). Sparkle on!
