I am always amazed at how much a little bit of Kindness can help. This week has been especially hard for me, from a few different things I have been struggling with some personal things and some as a family. Yet there was always a phone call from a friend, a visit from family, a kindness from a stranger who went the 2nd mile. Although this week was overwhelming and I caught myself feeling getting more and more discouraged, still before I could go too low, there were those small acts of kindness from family, friends and even strangers that made all the difference. Thank you for those of  you who were part of these acts of kindness to me. A listening ear, a hug, or whatever it was well needed and very much appreciated.
Today I woke up with a sore throat, body aches and I was chilled to the bone. I felt like I was starting to catch a bad cold. So I made myself some chicken noodle soup, heated up the rice bags, took some Vitamin C and went back to be for 3 more hours. I really felt alot better after that. I was mad at myself though because the stress has been so high this week and I didn't control my thoughts very well and that kind of stress is hard on your body. Plus, because I have been more worried and upset, I have also been going to bed too late. Several times, I hit the wall and knew I should just stop then and honor that feeling... and what did I do... I just kept pushing through the wall. Finally I think my body was telling had had enough. Sometimes I wonder why I am such a slow learner?
Oh well, I am so grateful for each of you and your kindness to me and my family!
Good night dear friends!
