This is an entry from a blog http://lookingforanswersforleah.blogspot.ca/ I write detailing my daughter’s struggle to find a diagnosis for medical issues that have plagued her for years.
“I have always believed that everything happens for a reason. From every experience you receive at least one life lesson. The biggest lesson I have received in the last month is about the kindness of strangers. I know I touched on it in a previous post, but it truly has been a mind blowing, jaw dropping, eyes popping out of my head, emotional roller coaster.”
Today Kris Tessier,chose to spend her birthday holding a charity fundraiser. She and her family had spread flyers around the neighbourhood, the schools, spread the word among friends and team mates. They set up a table in their driveway, some comfy chairs for chatting, emptied out the lemonade freezer section at the local grocery store and settled down to sell some lemonade. Well they didn’t just sell some lemonade, they sold LOTS of lemonade to some very very generous and kindhearted people. Just as people at the garage sale gave more than they had to, or stopped by just to donate, people came for no other reason than to make a donation. They made time in their very busy days to drive out of their way to make a donation for two little girls that many have never even met!
So kind readers, your life lesson of the day is to never underestimate the kindness of strangers. Whether they be separated from you by 2, 6 or 60 degrees, their kindness will always surprise you!
