There is the friend who sent me relaxation in the form of a spa gift card.
There is the parent who offered to get a group of people together to take my son on the field trip he wasn’t allowed to attend, and who also wanted to throw in a Reds game. Sharks, beer, and peanuts? Count me in!
There are my in-laws who provided me much-needed respite. I even took a bubble bath.
There are dozens of people who emailed, texted, hugged and listened. There are so many friends praying and hoping for us right now. Thank you.
And, maybe that’s what this is all about. Maybe every now and then we need to be reminded that there is more good than bad; that for every awful thing you read or experience, there are hundreds of good deeds going unnoticed or unmentioned.
If I’m going to share the bad, then you’ll have to bear with me as I share the good, too. That spa gift card, though? I’m keeping that all to myself.
