Random acts of kindness...

It seems like a good time to reflect and thank people for the amazing things that have been done while Olivia has been in the hospital this time around. We are so incredibly blessed to have amazing family and friends. Check this out:
1. There was a gas card left in our mailbox by an anonymous person with a note saying we were in their thoughts and prayers. Thank you so much...whoever you are!
2. I called my mother-in-law to check on the kids and she said Stanley Steamer had just left our house and she had gotten our carpets cleaned. That had to be a huge job with all the blood Olivia had left! (BTW - Hydrogen Peroxide really does get blood out of fabric!) Thanks so much for this and for watching the kiddos!
3. A family that had a heart kiddo up in PICU at the same time as us stopped by to visit and drop off entertainment, snacks, and adorable hair bows for Olivia. How sweet! You guys know how much those little things mean when your stuck in a room all the time! Thank you so much to Miss Izzy and her wonderful family!
4. During the hustle and bustle of the last few weeks, no one checked messages at home to hear about our very overdue movie. Oops. Grandma and the kids tracked down the movie and took it back to Family Video. The man waived all the late fees and told Grandma to have a great day! How kind!
These are just a few little blessings that have come our way over the last week or two. People never cease to amaze me! So a big "thank you" to all our friends and family who have watched our kids, done those little things, and prayed for us!
