Did you know that today is World Kindness Day? It’s a day to take a little something you know about someone and do something random to show that you appreciate them or care about them. Pretty nifty idea.
Today, we are thankful for people who’ve executed random acts of kindness to us in the past. Specifically, I am thinking about some people who really helped me out when I was pregnant with and first had Arianna.
A long time ago, I was a first grader and I met the person who would be my best friend forever. No, this isn’t some story of silly elementary school friendship, this is a real life, forever and ever story. Wendy and I met at Pinecreek Elementary school, playing on the playground in muddy puddles. We had that one lone year together as children, then renewed our friendship when I moved back in tenth grade. Our time together was again short, but Wendy was a woman who will always live on through me, through my children, and hopefully through their children.
