“My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her.”
— George Washington (1732-1799)
I didn’t think we would be able to do something today because we spent a majority of the day dealing with Ridley’s eye issues. The great news is that is all muscle related not cancer or something going on with his brain. The bad news is that our sweet Ridley will have to get surgery because is muscles are not working correctly. Until the surgery to try to keep the muscles form further deteriorating Ridley has to wear an eye patch for 2-3 hours a day. Let me just explain Ridley is the type of child who will not wear a hat or keep shoes on him. I put the eye patch on this afternoon and got him to keep it on for a whole 15 minuets. So we have more doctors appointments coming up to keep an eye on his eye. I guess for now it’s just a waiting game and left in God’s hands. Our doctor does not want to do surgery until he is closer to 3 years old. So onto our random act of kindness of the day…… We went to Target and there was a lady who was buying a bunch of clearance items (which was appropriate because my mom was the queen of finding a deal) who was inline behind us, So we bought a gift card and gave it to her. She was pretty stunned and very grateful, We really didn’t get into talking about my mom but I knew my mom was smiling down and I know she was the perfect person to randomly be kind to today.
I also wanted to share with you how we have inspired other acts of kindness in honor of my mom. I am going to share with you the email but I am going to take out the names because they want to be anonymous.
