I made a little promise to myself that I would give blood every 56 days until I completed my 68 acts of kindness. I honored my promise for the first couple of months but got a few weeks behind and broke my donation streak. Ahhh! My sweet friend Amanda got me back on track by scheduling her own appointment and asking me to tag along. I am so grateful for her friendship! My brother Sean and sister-in-law Jennifer also gave a few weeks ago in honor of my Mom.
I am always looking for signs of my Mom, especially on days that I am doing an act of kindness. When I took off my finger prick band-aid (ewww!), I had bled in the shape of a perfect heart. It may be a stretch, but I take it as a sign that Mom was with me. I love you Mom and thanks for all of your support Amanda, Sean, and Jennifer!!
