A Random Act of Kindness -- to Little Warrior!

Two days before Thanksgiving, Little Warrior went into the hospital for hopefully her last procedure, to remove the portacath through which she received chemotherapy. We wound up spending many hours in the waiting room. While we were there, a pretty lady who was there with one sister, waiting with their other sister and her child, darted out to the gift shop and returned with a Hello Kitty balloon, candy and a cute teddy bear, which she presented to Little Warrior.

This was completely out of the blue -- I don't believe we'd exchanged any words. But she felt moved to give LW a little treat. When I enthused over this, she demurred any praise, saying that the Lord told her to do so.

What I didn't say at the time, but should have (I don't think fast on my feet, especially when I'm really touched by something) is that God/the Universe/However you view the Transcending Mystery, speaks to us all the time. Choosing to act on that is very special.

So ... a good deed done directly for LW by a stranger. I have good friends, I told someone. I have good strangers, too.

Good News

We got very good news today. Little Warrior had a CT and it was clear. No more cancer.

We introduced the kids to Footloose this past weekend. Little Warrior was especially caught up in the music.

FREE Good Deed -- Bone Marrow Registration

I know you've been wanting to do this, but the $52 fee for doing a good deed slowed you down. You didn't have your credit card by the computer. Or at least that's what happened to me.

For the month of November, thanks to a generous donation, you can sign up to be on the bone marrow donation list -- for free!

Simply go to: and at the "Become a donor" box, click Join. It'll take a few minutes to register, so plan accordingly.

If you join by November 30, then they'll send you a kit -- all you have to do is swab inside your cheek and send it back. Presto, you're on the list.

And you've done a pretty fabulous good deed, right in time for Thanksgiving.

Pass this on to your friends and family!
