I continue to see His providence in my family – daily.

The first act of kindness that came to mind was one from back in 2013. I had just recently been diagnosed with Chiari + Syringomyelia laying in my hospital bed awaiting my decompression surgery. I was feeling so lost and scared – but did well in hiding it all, not wanting to worry my family even more. I had three little ones home at that time, the youngest being 2 years old. My husband although a great support, still had to be home to care for our little ones. When my 8 hour decompression surgery was over, I was in so much pain and still feeling alone and scared. My first night after surgery, not being able to sleep, the night shift nurse came in – she had the sweetest voice, so comforting to hear, began to talk to me. I can tell she wanted to put me at ease and we began conversing. We spoke about our families, she spoke about her baby girl and we continued until she saw that I drifted to sleep. I will always treasure such sweet memory. She was my angel that night, she saw that I had my medicine for my physical pain, but she also wanted to comfort my soul, my heart. There are angels, that I’m sure of.

    1. Yes! I’m so glad you can relate. It can be tough to voice that without someone thinking we may be downers or plain negative. But, it’s true. I heard someone once say, their therapists suggested they think of four positives when they begin to think negatively. I thought that was both tough and interesting. It’s achievable though! If we don’t think positive and highly about ourselves, no one else will. No one. 😊🙏🏽

    1. Yes! How God sends his angels in times when you need them the very most. Only they can help comfort the soul in such amazing ways. We get ourselves wrapped up in the ways that things aren’t working in our favor, yet Gods timing is perfect, He never abandons us the way we may think He does. 😊🙏🏽
      Thanks again for the nomination Stuart, such unique and wonderful award!

  1. What a wonderful award, and congratulations. I love the kindness experience you shared and I’m grateful to that night shift nurse as those kinds of nurses in hospital, which I agree with from my own experience, are absolutely priceless, definitely angels when we need them the most  ♥
