I need to thank the Universe for an act of kindness so far beyond it that it extends to whatever other ones there are out there. Two posts ago, I had put up a message (thanks to my mom for the suggestion) asking for help because I’m a writer, and my computer crashed, and I am not in a financial place to purchase a new one, nor could I because of this project.
Katie, a friend of Stacey’s, who I’ve never met but who follows our blog sent me a message just a day later, telling me that she had a computer that she is not using now that she wants to send me. A complete stranger is doing this for me. With a full, generous heart. She wants nothing for it.
With my recent breakup, I am finding myself in a very dark place, the darkest I’ve ever seen. And amongst that darkness this person has reached out and offered help and light. This brings me comfort in a time that is very uncomfortable. This act has reminded me of the goodness in people and how we are all completely connected and must all take care of each other. I hope to return the favor someday when someone needs it. But for now, I need it. And I am learning how to let others help me.
I never thought something like this would come of a new year’s resolution, but am so grateful for the lesson.
Thank you, Katie.
