One of my doctors was so touched today when I went for my follow up appointment. She thanked me for the thank you card and she said that simple cards like that to healthcare workers means so much more to them than just money a lot of times… She said she was taking photos of my card and showing the staff. 😊
I talk so fast around her when trying to tell so much because we have a little bit of time at appointments but a lot to say lol She has become like a second sister. …My story about how I had prayed for countless months to be healed and how my spirit led me to her.. (the only doctor after 6 months of 2 previous opinions) I am a black woman with Creole descent and so is she. Sadly I thought the reason other doctors didn’t take my situation serious was because I was in the minority and when I choose her she could relate. ..bc this is also something that was common in African American women. She knew how to permanently stop the reason for my loss of blood cells with a simple solution that had saved my future and my future generation.
It was so inspiring; to her, myself and a few others I shared that part of my life with..
I won’t reveal her name yet until I am ready to one day tell everything I went through…the entire story! One day I will tell of this full blessed testimony of how God can lead you to the right people in life to help with you with things that seemed impossiable and when others said no…even when it took 3 opinions like it did with me 😊..as of now I am thankful, overwhelmed and happy. 😊
Have you ever had a friendly connection with certain people because of their energy and their vibe? They’re the kind of people that make you say, to them, “I love your energy!” because it’s what they pass along and spread to you. The next thing you know, you are in a good feeling because of them. These are the kind of people/friends you need in your life to have a positive life. That kind of experience happened to me last year.
Last summer, I would always see this elderly lady at the park getting in her miles a day. She’d always carry a stick with her and walk for what seemed like hours. She’d walk by me and smile a gentle smile everytime. One morning my car wouldn’t start. As I was sitting in the car she came up to me and asked if I needed help. I didn’t know the reason why my car wouldn’t start but she popped open my hood and told me my battery had died and that she would jump it for me. Relieved and embarassed at the same time, I thanked her. She went on to tell me the story of how she learned things from her husband and the good ole days. Moments later, a few minutes of chatting with her became an hour of laughing in conversation in the parking lot.
She told me her name was Lily and that she walks from 8am until 10am almost every morning. She told me she was in her seventies and that walking helped with her blood pressure and diabeties. I told her that my mom had the same issue and she said, “Yes, well she definitely needs to start walking.”
Later, I ended up getting my mom to walk with me and she started to feel brand new and was glad I talked to her into it. Had it not been for Mrs. Lily my mom wouldn’t have gotten the courage with me to walk. (I had been asking her for years to go on walks with me lol)
A new year came and I had gotten a new car. I would continue to go to the park and inhale the fresh air over the cascading lake, but my sweet Mrs. Lily was no where to be found. I would say a silent prayer that she was okay and that I’d meet her again one day. One evening as I was walking, I was hoping I’d walk by her. (I was losing hope that I ever would see her again.) Somehow, I noticed a lady that looked like Mrs. Lily, but she was thinner and had a grey afro. She smiled at me with that familiar gentle smile and I gasped saying, “Mrs. Lily?! Is that you?” 😊 I was so happy to see my friend again and she was happy to see me too. I explained to her how I always hoped to see her again and she told me she started coming to walk at 6am with a few friends. We caught up for a few minutes, but I really wished it was longer. We said our see you laters and went our own way…hoping to have another friendly encounter with each other again. That was the last time I saw her and I’ll never forget her. I wish I had asked for a way to stay connected with her, but I didn’t want to seem creepy lol
I would question if Mrs Lily were an angel because I never ran into her anymore since then. She had this grey hair like white snow and had that grandmotherly feeling. Sometimes just talking to her instantly made me vibrate high and she was filled with high vibrational energy. Well, angels are known to vibrate high. Unfortunatly you never run into these people again and sometimes you do.
Beautiful acts of kindness can happen anywhere. At a bus stop, at the mall, the nail salon or randomly at a Captain D’s drive thru.
💟Aww the cashier at Captain D’s (very young girl maybe early 20s) told me my lashes were pretty. I’m always the one giving women compliments, but this time a sweet girl was kind enough to bless me with a compliment. 😊
💟I thanked her and told her that New York Nails hooked me up..she was shocked. I love to see women help and encourage other women on their beauty and their looks. I always believe self care is the best medicine for self love and confidence; with that, you have no time to envy or be in a bad mood because looking good makes you feel good.
💟I am glad that I was able to pass along that information for her. She was a very beautiful girl but nothing is ever wrong with wanting to get more beautiful if you want to for you 😉 I don’t believe women should let themselves go or feel the only time to be pretty or feel pretty is when they have someone in their life. It’s okay to flatter yourself and get comfortable with you.
💟💟What’s important is that women should do this act of kindness more often with each other. Too many of us are afraid to compliment each other and fix each other’s crown. It makes you feel good to give these small gestures and receive small gestures, but the outcome is REAL BIG with what was poured in and from your heart.
