The Kindness of Others

This week I have once again been blessed to see the kindness of others. Strangers and friends who did a little something special to make our lives better. People who once again remind me of the good in this world.

After my last post, someone we have never met, a loyal reader of our blog offered to send Alex a new ipod. Nancy is a selfless woman who wanted nothing in return, but to see my Buggy have a smile on his face. True to her word Alex received an ipod several days later and did in fact bring a smile to his face and tears to my eyes! Thank you, Nancy for caring about a family thousands of miles away and reaching out to a little boy. We will never forget your kindness.

As most of you know Bruce's job is not in a good spot. As a matter of fact, I waited to update all week bc I was sure it would be with the terrible news that he had been laid off. That still may be the case, but thanks to a good friend we have hope. Bob, is a friend Bruce has played soccer with for almost 8 years. Bob stepped up this week and is doing everything in his power to get Bruce transferred to his dept. Both Bob, Bruce's current manager and HR are all in agreement. However, a VP is trying to block it from happening. We should know early this week, but just knowing there are people who will go out of the way for you makes a difference!

This morning we were once agained blessed. A friend I've known since Alex was a baby (who is a professional photographer) offered to take pictures of my little troublemaker. Alyssa Maisano takes gorgeous pictures. We met her at a neat park and she got some incredible pictures of Bug. I cannot wait to share some of them. If any of my DFW friends need a photographer, you would be lucky to have Alyssa.

So while this hasn't been the easiest of times with worrying about Bruce's job, these special people and some other good friends have definitely lifted our spirits. Thank you for making our lives so much better.
