I have been wanting to do one of those "I am Thankful For" posts for a while, but thing I have NOT been thankful for is free time.  I have made a pact with myself.  Next week, over the holiday, I am going to catch up with all of my blog loves (I miss you so!), and I am going to do that "I am Thankful For" post.

I have just now gotten 3 messages in a row filled with the most wonderful news.  I mean wonderful.  My life is going to become much easier as a result of one piece of news.  A friend's mother has localized, operable, cancer.  It has not metastasized, as we feared it could have.  And another friend just posted a series of photos on my Facebook wall.

Mind you...the first and second messages are great gifts for which I am SO thankful for.  But this last message made me cry.  In a happy way :) 

When I see these photos I imagine that the guy probably thinks nothing of jumping in to help.  What a small thing he did to save a puppy's life!  I wonder if he realizes how grand his small kindness seems to the woman?   Her face in the next to the last photo is what brought me to tears.

I think the world could do with a few more people willing to drop their pants and jump in.  Don't you?

Thanks for the smile Gini.

Happy Friday!

Even if ONE more person was inspired to do something good for another by that man - bravo!

Happy to hear about the cancer not spreading. That news makes you really begin to appreciate what you already have, but may have forgotten.
