I needed to repost this, as it really shows us what a little bit of kindness can mean to someone. You just never know.
I have sort of been out of the loop with major medical emergencies and I had no idea I won anything. Imagine my surprise when I received a package in the mail. Actually it wasn't a surprise, it was a huge blessing, one that I needed in a big way. Let me explain: On Christmas Day I got a call that my Mom was being taken by ambulance to the hospital with chest pains, she was in critical condition. I flew to FL the next day as my Mom was going to need bypass surgery. Upon arriving in FL, I received a a message saying that now my son had an emergency. He had been taken by ambulance to the hospital with severe stomach pain. He had a gall stone that was blocking his bile duct. This was incredibly upsetting as my son was scheduled to have sugery on his jaw in a few days. This surgery had already been rescheduled twice, it was to repair a broken jaw. He would have his jaw wired for 8 weeks with this surgery.
My Mom had a triple bypass on Dec. 29th, my son had gallbladder surgery on Dec.30th. My Mom's surgery was very critical. The dr's kept telling us that she might not survive the surgery. Thank God she did survive and she is doing a lot better then expected.
My son finally had his jaw surgery Tuesday Jan 11th. I returned from seeing him at the hospital and I had this wonderful package greeting me. I was a little confused, I didn't think I had an outstanding order. Imagine my surprise at receiving this. I had been so busy, so concerned for my loved ones that I didn't think about New Year's or any kind of celebration. Wow, the timing could not have been better. I so needed a pick me up, a stress reliever and I received it from you guys. I told you a long story but I wanted you to know how much of a gift you sent me. Thank you for being such givers, you just never know what effect it will have on the receiver. Barrie and Carol, you are blessings!
