Thankful this week for the kindness of strangers

5 years ago

 Moms. Aging. Theirs and ours.
It's been a week around here.  And I know you all know what that means.
It wasn't a bad week, just a very busy one with a couple of bumps in the road.

Kindness of Strangers By Ed YourdonBoth of our moms had some problems negotiating the world this week.  And in each case their travels were made a little lighter by the kindness of strangers. 

Thank you, world. Thank you, kind strangers. Thank you, moms, for hanging in their and leading the way. 

Boy, it's been a week.

I want to add a note brought up in comments to the original post: 

I may have implied it, but let's drive this point home: This is all a good reminder to be ready to reach out and be the kind stranger when someone needs it.   It definitely takes a village.
