It came!! A very special package–September’s Survival Goodie Box!
Who is it from??? I have no idea! But what I do know, she is a special lady who wanted to make me smile today. It worked!!
There are 13 participating channels in a year long Secret Channel Gift Swap. What is a channel? In this case, the channels are ladies who have a YouTube channel or a blog. (I fit into the latter.) Most of these wonderful ladies–listed below with their channel link–are dedicated to helping people through their YouTube channel or blog. I encourage you to check them out!
Each month there will be a swap theme and the big reveal will be done next August. The first swap is the month of September. Each participating channel was asked to prepare a Survival Goodies Box for their Secret Channel person that would see them through this season. Suggestive items are favorite snacks, chocolate, coffee, teas, journal, book, gift card, or anything on their wishlist. This box is to be the “go to” box when the Secret Channel person is on the verge of a burnout! Burnout? What? No one gets stressed with life! LOL!!
So here is my special box contents!!
My son was quite excited to get to participate in the opening of the box. LOL. He was my photographer for the moment!
I opened the box, and lo, and behold….Confetti strips popped out!! I LOVED that! It was a little party in a box! I pulled out each item that was so carefully and individually wrapped and opened each of them one by one. Whoop! Whoop!
I was in heaven!!
Salted Carmel chocolate bar! YUM!! Get in my belly!!
Vanilla Chai Tea!! OOH LA LA!
$10 gift card to Walmart!! Be still my heart!!
An absolutely beautiful journal!! Let the writing begin!
And a sweet card! The note was precious. I loved the stunning flower art on the cover as well! In a frame THIS will go!! The teapot!! LOVE IT!
I realize that reading about my experience is not as exciting as watching me in a video, but know this–I am so very grateful for the Secret Channel lady that sent this. You will never know what a blessing it was to receive this box! Thank you whoever you may be!! May God bless you in a very special way!
Now, I MUST let you see ALL the great channels that are participating in this swap:

Although I was so excited to receive my box, I was even more excited to put my secret channel’s box together and mail it for September!! I pray that she will be blessed as well.
Thank you for reading! I hope that you too will receive a special blessing this month! Don’t wait for it to happen. Go ahead. Look around. Find someone that may need you to be a blessing to them! Don’t do it for selfish reasons, but rather to be a blessing to someone else. YOU just may be the one that causes a special smile to someone who needed it!
