KIND WORDS ON A SCRAP OF PAPER~


The power of the written word---even if scrawled on a scrap of paper, can truly hug the heart of someone in need.


                                   KIND WORDS ON A SCRAP OF PAPER

My daughter Skylar had our little Eddie Jett in the waiting room at the hospital where he was to have several tests yesterday.  Most six year old's would get antsy, but Eddie Jett could absolutely not comprehend why in the world those four, boring, waiting room walls were containing his free spirit for so long. 

1p36-er's do a lot of waiting in hospitals, and it's virtually impossible to explain to them why they are there or what's about to happen, so needless to say it's most always a very stressful situation.

Poor Eddie Jett was having a major melt-down after an hour of waiting, and no amount of "book reading" could calm him.  He has an incredible memory, and Skylar kept having to pull him back away from the exit as he remembered the fountain in the lobby where he got to throw some pennies in for luck last week as he was leaving the hospital.  He was on a non-covert mission to make a break from the waiting room to chunk change in the cascading water, and each time he was denied he protested louder and louder.

Skylar was sweating bullets and felt like she was about to get voted off the island by the rest of the folks waiting patiently for their names to be called.  She finally resigned to letting Eddie make a run for it for a few minutes down the hallway.  As she headed for the door with her fearless, tiny leader a lady handed her a note very matter-of-factly, without even looking up from her magazine.

Sky sat on a bench outside the waiting room and read the note.  The woman had scrawled a note of inspiration and admiration on a scrap of paper from the cross word puzzel book she was working on.  Skylar had tears running down her face as she snapped back to the moment to retrieve Eddie who was trying to make a run for it on the elevator that he just summonsed by pushing the UP button---he LOVES elevator buttons.

The words that were written made Skylar's week.  They truly warmed her heart and gave her an extra muscle in the mama department that afternoon.  She gained strength from the simple words that the kind woman in the stuffy waiting room wrote down and handed her.

Never, ever underestimate the power of writing, saying, or doing something simple for someone in need.  It just might be what the Dr. ordered for the day, and heal their spirit.

Mr. Eddie on the waiting room phone (that Skylar had to un-plug) trying to call a cab to come pick up from this non-sense!  He's a trooper, and his mama is amazing~

Low cost necklaces, along with low cost outfits. Smaller stores along with resellers, whom don't have some time along with means to maintain up while using manner tendencies, will always be for the never-ending loop in relation to the most up-to-date fad inside manner sector.

going to the collection so that you can see how the works are organized. In the event you have a immense collection, you may need to call ahead and ask the archivist to pull definite boxes for you. Also, make definite that you know where your documents are housed.
