Today was one of those days when I was thankful that I had shared my news with those around me. Through my friend Norma, I have gotten to know a wonderful gal who owns the Tim Horton's behind our building. You know from my history that I go there
Today Ann did something that blessed my heart. It was a little action but brought tears to my eyes. Next week is 'Send a Kid to Camp' week and one of the fundraisers that is already in progress is that people can donate a loonie and put their name on a paper tent. I filled out my tent a couple of days ago and signed it 'Hannah's Mommy.' This morning when I was ordering my coffee one of the gals said, I put your tent in the doorway so that you could easily find it. How sweet! There are hundreds of tents decorating the store but this gal took the time to remember where she put mine and tell me about it when I came in. After picking up my coffee I went over towards the doorway to see Hannah's tent and there it was. Ann noticed me and asked which tent was mine and I pointed to it. She quickly realized which one it was and she called out to me, 'Sweet kisses for Hannah!' and kissed her hand and touched the tent not just once, but twice. It was a loving gesture in the midst of their coffee break rush that took seconds but, has come to mind over and over today and caused me to smile each and every time. My daughter is already loved....and I am so blessed by those who love and care about her.
Ann, thank you. Thank you for caring; for asking how it's going and supporting me during the wait. You and the great gals who work in your store are an important part of my journey to Hannah and I cannot wait to bring her in and introduce her to you! When she's ready, you can plant those sweet kisses on her cheek!
