Pay It Forward

Thursday, March 21, 2013

The Lord has blessed me in so many ways.
My cousin's children are having challenges.
One was looking for a 'small memento' to remember the day and her Mom. She shared what her sisters had claimed and said there was nothing left for her. The beautiful sympathy bouquet I blogged about yesterday was promptly gotten and given to her along with information on how to preserve the flowers. This caused her to beam.
Helping with a couple of 'behind the scene' items aided me in my perception of my role in my cousin's life - aiding her.
I could truly paraphrase the Borodin Boy who said 'He's not heavy, he's my brother' with 'she's my cousin'. I hadn't realized how others had appreciated my being there for Judy over the nearly 3 decades of her illness until today.
God is good.

remember how happy you were when you received that floral arrangement? You are selfless enough to share it with another who felt slighted(and was). I am sitting here with goosebumps thinking how one person(you) can change the dynamics of a situation with one move.
I am grateful that you made me a Spark-friend. Thank you.
