Thank you

  1. Yesterday, my daughter needed stitches. I am reminded of this:”Fred Rogers often told this story about when he was a boy and would see scary things on the news: “My mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’ To this day, especially in times of disaster, I remember my mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers — so many caring people in this world.”
  2. The man who was standing near us and went immediately to get tissues and a bandaid
  3. The EMTs who showed up quickly and were so calm and kind
  4. My husband, who took the afternoon off work and got to the hospital before we did
  5. And held my hand, strengthening me as I held my daughter’s, while she was in the worst parts of it
  6. The wonderful crew at the hospital who love kids and did an amazing job
  7. And again for my husband, who stopped on his way home to get a balloon and a teddy bear and playdoh
  8. To God, that she is okay, and we had access to everything she needed to get help quickly
  9. To my daughter, for her strength and courage and sweetness
  10. For even these experiences, and all they give us

  1. We are surrounded by people who help us in times like this. Even those who read this who say ((((Ava))) and ((((Hannah))) who I’m sure saw it. Hugs to you and Mark.
