Describe a moment of kindness, between you and someone else — loved one or complete stranger.
This past spring, I drove back to the prairies to see my mom. She had taken a tumble, breaking her ankle, and ended up staying in the hospital for almost eight weeks. It was a two-day drive for me to get there, but was really important for me that I help out as much as I could.
When I arrived at the hospital mom was laying in her bed looking tired and bored. She sat up as I stood nearby, reaching her arms out, “Marilyn!”.
The smile on her face made my heart soar, as I’m sure it did hers. We visited for a while, then she asked, “would you like to play cards?”
A chapter in mom’s book has come and gone, she is home now and doing quite nicely. I was glad I could be there to help her over some of the bumps.
