There's An Angel Among Us

The other day I was "blog surfing". I went to Leigh vs Laundry then Batcrap Crazy then Running away? I'll help you pack to this one below. This is a web site of a woman who gives handkerchiefs to mothers who have lost children. I was so touched by her simple kindness to others. I wish she would have been around when my husband and his first wife lost 3 children on the days that they were born.



"Kindness is the essence of greatness and the fundamental characteristic of the noblest men and women I have known. Kindness is a passport that opens doors and fashions friends. It softens hearts and molds relationships that can last lifetimes. Kind words not only lift our spirits in the moment they are given, but they can linger with us over the years." Joseph Wirthlin

This must be one of her callings in life, but it is so wonderful she accepts it and reaches out to so many.

No matter how small, a truly sincere gesture of kindness can make such a difference!

I wonder if you just have too long a line with "Posted by Tom and Karen Mortenson" to leave you room for "Comment." Just a thought...

As for the handkerchiefs, that is really a meaningful gift to give a grieving family. Thanks for sharing.

Wow, how inspiring. Sometimes we want to change the world by doing something so huge we can barely breathe in thinking about the task. It's awesome to see that such a small gesture can have such far reaching effects. AWESOME!

What a wonderful thing for her to do! And I wish she had been able to do that for your husband and his first wife, too. Things like that mean so much.
