Random Acts of Kindness

In this wild and crazy world, Random Acts of Kindness happen every day. I'd like to share a few that have drifted our way. I will embarrass these folks by *telling* on them, but that's okay. The universe already knows how wonderful they are and sharing the news with you just seems the right thing to do.

My buddy Kim sent sound body, sound mind: music for healing with andrew weil, md to us. It is beautiful, wonderful, everything advertised and more. What she didn't know is that both of us have an interest in music and acoustics -- Mr. Dragon especially with his physics background.

Then there is Corrine, who shares our love of mysteries and is going to make sure we have enough to read by sending us books from one of her favorite authors, Henning Mankell -- an author we haven't read.

This is a just a few of my wonderful blogging family that have rallied to the Dragons and the fight we are waging. The blogging family is a wonderful thing. Thank all of you so very much for all your good wishes.

Now I'm going to tell you about someone else. Someone who could use a little good cheer right now.

This is Gina Drennon and she owns Feather Your Nest, a lovely shop that was her dream. Her husband, Michael, supported her dreams and off she flew until this last week. Michael, age 39, died from a heart attack. Gina has decided to close Feather Your Nest. She needs to find a job with benefits to support her children. Everything in the shop is 25% off. If you can help, please drop by.

That is so neat, Snap... There are so many wonderful people online---and so many are constantly doing those little random acts of kindness... I feel so blessed to have met so many wonderful people through blogging.

Glad you are feeling the love also.

Hi Snap. So sorry to hear about your friend Gina's loss. I will take a look-see in her shop. Life has a way of ripping the rug out from under your feet sometimes. And we think, if only we knew then...much love.
