Spoilt...



Today I observed someone being spoilt - spoilt in a good way... and boy did I love it.

As I sat and watched this beautiful pregnant lady opening gifts at her baby shower I was struck at how special the moment was.

This lady has not long been in our country - she is new here to our land with no extended family or old friends. She is about to have her third child, and has never had a baby shower or been treated in such a special way.

I watched as she opened gifts surrounded by new friends and even some people who have never met her before, yet wanted to welcome her into our 'family'... her eyes filled with tears as she shared in her broken English how she has never felt so special and loved, especially from people she has never met.

It moved me.

It made me wonder how many other people are out there in my life who have never experienced being treated 'special'... people who need to feel spoilt.

I think there must be quite a few people out there who need a bit of spoiling... I might just have to find some.

  2. You're right Kristy. I bet there's a bunch of women that could do with being spoilt. A girl in our church recently had her 2nd child and has been amazed at how the meals just keep on coming. She has not long returned from living in London where there was very little support when she had her first baby. Amazing what we take for granted eh? Even the fact that we know a bunch of people who will all club together to "spoil" someone they hardly know. Wow. That's pretty special.

  5. This reminds me of a baby shower for a lady who had just adopted a beautiful baby girl from China!! People are so kind, at least most of them are.

  7. I think that we should be on the "look-out" for people who need spoiling. It takes our eyes of ourselves and moves them onto others - never a bad thing. :)

  8. I think we all need to be spoiled more! But you are right there certainly are people out there who never get spoiled. In my world they are usually the grumpy ones that are hard to love (not always though). You've encouraged me Kristy. Might go make some treats for that grumpy work colleague of mine and soften her heart!
