One Mom To Another Kindness
--by dotmatrix, posted Jan 17, 2019
On Monday Michele Vecchitto over at Go Dog Go Café invited all writers on Monday to share a link to a page on our blog. This is cool and she does this every Monday. My poet friend in Australia, Ivor, told me about it.
https://mkvecchitto.com/2019/01/14/promote-yourself-monday-january-14-2019/ I started following Ivor last year. A few months ago he had a stroke and has been writing about it. He's a widower and alone, so I wanted to stay in touch. I started a Whatsapp group for (so far) two friends: Ivor, Manuel and me. (And I only know about Whatsapp because of Horse_Friend -- thank you!) Ivor, Manuel and I are all recovering after strokes and/or injury and other illnesses. So we are the "Turbo Snails" and anyone needing a slow walking/recovery buddy is welcome. Our motto is "Simplicity + Consistency > Intensity" (Sean Anderson). We stay in touch every day and it's been great.
So in response the Michele's Monday invitation, I shared the link to "Missing Benjamin" with a few words about it.
Today Michele reblogged Ben's page and video on her blog of a bazillion followers: https://mkvecchitto.com/2019/01/17/benjamin-morse-archer/
and put it on her Facebook page:
Ivor and I both thanked her. She wrote:
"I’m trying to help in any little way I can, one mom to another."
I'm just so grateful and had to share her kindness.
