I am way late again with a Thought For Thursday… It’s been a crazy day! I went to work this morning (lots going on this week, flowers, etc.) and was not supposed to be there all day…. Then T’s MIL called me because her daughter, T’s DH’s sister, is about to have a baby any time now, and MIL is sick as a dog… and so I have become a mom of 4 kids under the age of 13 for the weekend, a day early. LOL! They were coming over tomorrow night anyway, but today just got a bit crazy… I did enjoy a somebody James”concert”/with the three youngest at the elementary school tonight. K & C each performed and it was fun to watch. I got all “verklempt” like they were my own little monkeys… kind of fun to have psuedo kids. 🙂
Anyway, today’s TFT is about passing on kindness. This quote came to me via email a week or so ago and I’ve been dying to share it along with the story of an awesome little boy.
“Have you had a kindness shown? Pass it on; ‘Twas not given for thee alone, Pass it on; Let it travel down the years, Let it wipe another’s tears, ‘Til in Heaven the deed appears – Pass it on. ”
—Henry Burton (1840-1930), clergyman, writer
When I went to my Certified Fiskateer Training, my friend, Jenn B, was telling me about the coolest project that her little 6 year old was working on. He is an amazing little 6 year old…. an Eagle Scout in training… He is giving back to Primary Children’s Hospital (in Salt Lake City). PCH holds a special place in my heart as it is the place where my little niece, Kiera, passed away at 3 mos old. The staff was AMAZING. They really take care of their little ones and the families of little ones. PCH is a place of sadness, miracles, and many kind helping hands.
Cameron has drawn a set of four darling cards that he sold to raise money ($180.00 – WOWZA!) to buy art supplies for children who are at PCH. You can read the story of Cameron’s project for yourself here, and here. I am truly amazed at the fortitude and insight of this little guy. He’s going to be an amazing adult! His drawings are awesome and who knows, perhaps he will draw some more to earn more money and keep “passing it on”. Here’s the newest info on his project… a little video before they went to deliver the art kits!
This week, think about some ways you can “pass it on” or be of service to someone in need. Do something for someone and share the love.
Leave a comment on this post and share with us something that someone has done for you that has made a difference in your life. On Monday I will draw a random winner who will receive a CTMH 9×9 embossed Butterfly Album with 10 printed pages and page protectors. It’s gorgeous! You can view one here on Ebay (no, it’s not my listing… I just needed a good pic and it’s too late to take one tonight.)
