I feel like I am always either at school, sports practice or a game, so I have to find different ways to do little acts of kindness.
My good friend and co-worker has a mom dealing with cancer who is living with her during treatment. I decided to send this mom - whom I've never met - a card thanking her for raising such a wonderful person. I told how her daughter was such being a good listener, someone who I can share my troubles with, and someone who makes me laugh.
I was a little uneasy about it afterwards and wondered if my friend would think it strange
Tonight while sitting at basketball practice I received a text from my friend. She wanted to tell me that the card I sent her mom was one of the most beautiful things she had ever read and how lucky she was to have me in her life!
I'm glad I went with my gut feeling and sent the card. What was the worst that could happen? Mom and daughter could have a good laugh at my craziness, but so what? They could use some laughter right now. They could have talked about how strange I was, but even then they'd be talking about the card I sent.
I got lucky and they enjoyed sharing the kind words.
I sent it because I thought how neat it would be one day to have someone send me a card telling me how happy they were to have one of my children in their lives and what a great job I had done raising my child!
