I love making “vision cards” as I call them. My friend was in a dark place, addictions had taken over his life. I loved him from a distance, and sent him vision cards here and there. He is sober now and had kept a card I made 18 years ago! I was really moved. I never knew it meant anything, cause he never told me. Kindness may not be acknowledged in the moment, but it’s all about planting seeds, and one day many years later it shall bloom. Blessings.
My best friend’s mum recently got home from the hospital, after a 4 month long stay having had Coronavirus. It was a very horrible experience, she lost 60 pounds and she is so grateful to still be alive.
I made her a little care package, complete with British treats and mask, coloring from my daughter and a thank God you are back home card.
I found out that a young mother at my daughter's daycare has cancer, and is going through some intensive treatments. So, I decided to express some kindness to her. Since I am not a good cook, I picked up a frozen lasagna and garlic bread, wrote her a card and COURAGE rock and sent it to her.
My friend’s husband Steve recently passed away from cancer. He was a strong beautiful soul, whom I had the pleasure to know. The local palliative care facility helped my friend and her girls, making his final days full of love, care and support.
I decided to donate my old car to an organization that helps to resale or recycle the car, and any money raised goes to the organization of the donor's choice. I chose the palliative care facility that offered comfort and compassion to my friends, so that Steve's life and memory may be honored. May he Rest In Peace.
After reading it’s International Woman’s Day, I wanted to do something to note the occasion. I bought some mascaras to donate to a local woman’s shelter. My sister-in-law works there, and told me lots of women at the shelter wish they had the means to buy “non essential” things like make up. I hope this little gift lifts their spirits.
