Thank you

15 Nov

Hobbling around on crutches for a week, I have been humbled by all the kinds I’ve been shown. Every small act of kindness felt huge to me.

Thank you, Nina                                                                                                                                                          For wheeling me around school and making my tea.

Thank you Stoller colleagues                                                                                                                                   For sharing your wisdom and stories and for offering help.

Thank you, neighbor                                                                                                                                           For offering to carry my garbage bag to the can.

Thank you, Andrew & Sue                                                                                                                                    For talking Lucy for the all important evening poop walk.

Thank you kind people                                                                                                                                         For holding the door open for me. It was a small act for you, but tricky for me to do alone.

Thank you friends and family                                                                                                                                   For your calls and offers of help. I cherish every one, whether I took up your offer or not.

Thank you to Monika Schröder                                                                                                                          For giving me just the book I needed this week.

Thank you everyone                                                                                                                                           For you well wishes and encouragement. I appreciate every word.

Thank you to the ones I have forgotten to thank                                                                                    Forgive my imperfect memory.

    We don’t often realize how many good people there are in the world until we are in need of help no matted how small the tasks might seem to be. So glad that you are finding so many good people.

    Crutches are the worst! You have wonderful people who surround you and support you just when you need it.

    Isn’t lovely to have so many people you can rely on for help? Hoping you are feeling better!

    What a delightful post! I’ve come to realize that we can never say “thank you” enough. We’re so opt to complain first. You’ve captured the opportunity to recognize those who have made a difference. Great post and I hope you are up and about soon!

    Nice slice format to frame your new perspective from crutches. Ditch those as soon as you’re able, but hang onto that sense of gratitude and appreciation for as long as you can!
