Thank you, thank you!! I can't say it enough to you or my family and friends.
I've talked enough about the big H but I want to share something that I learned from this experience.
The very minute I had surgery loved ones started taking care of us with calls, visits, food, etc.
Every single bit of it was needed and appreciated.
It was awkward though because we've never had to be the recipient. Anyway...
Guess what I never expected.....PORCH PRESENTS.
I'm calling them porch presents because wonderful helpful things landed on our porch
the day I came home from the hospital and for several days after.
The doorbell never rang but we would receive a text saying...check your porch.
We found cake, cookies, flowers, and cards out there.
Who would have thought?!
Those things were wonderful and boosted my spirit.
The best part was that I didn't feel like visiting at the time and
somehow those people just knew it.
Today a friend of mine shared this article on Facebook:
The gist of it is that we often tell someone, "Let me know if you need something".
However, they never tell us and we don't always follow through even though we intend to.
I'm here to tell you that one answer might be Porch Presents. :)
Please tell me your great ideas of things we could give someone in need just by sneaking
by and leaving it on their porch. I'm going to practice this kindness.
