Be A Doer

That is my new goal.  If there is one thing that I have learned through all of this it is that people are good.  I am so overwhelmed by all the kindness our family has been shown throughout this crummy situation.  Meals, cards, flowers, visits, more meals, comments, thoughts, prayers, prayer roll at the temple, my visiting teachers even gave me a gas card to use while I make the trip to see my mom, babysitting, etc., etc..  In a world of tragedy and heartache it is so nice to know that there are people out there who are still so good and kind.  I hope to give back and become an angel to others the way you are all angels to us.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Thank heavens for good people. I can't say thank you enough to Lynn Harris for taking care of my children so much during these past few months. You are truly an angel. There are so many people who just do and don't ask first. I, too, appreciate those people and hope to do the same. The world IS crummy but filled with wonderful people.
I will remind you, Manda, if you will remind me. We will be doers the rest of our lives.

A good thing that has come out of this awfulness, is to see how many people love your mom and your family. It is amazing!
