7/20 Givers

Yesterday my sister Jan cleaned my house. It was such a selfless act of love and touched me deeply.

Because of the pain I'd had, my whole sense of self changed. Instead of just not doing what I couldn't do (lift, vacuum, sweep), I didn't do anything.

While Jan cleaned, I organized. Her daughter and future son-in-law helped her carry items to my shed (built into the old garage).

My house is livable now. And I can invite people over instead of being afraid someone will stop by.

Jan is absolutely tremendous. What has someone done for you lately? Unexpectedly or planned, doesn't matter. Just tell us what someone has done for you. It will make us all smile.

my act of kindness was to let Jan do it by herself. I know I could never clean up to her standards. Way to go Jan.

You are so good, Jane.

In all seriousness, you do acts of kindness all the time. We all appreciate you.

I know you've gone on vacation by now. I sure hope you have a wonderfully relaxing time.
