what-i-learned-this-week

This past Thursday, my husband had his knee surgery.  I am happy to report that all went well and he is on the road to recovery.  (It’s a slow road, but a road nonetheless!)

What I still can’t wrap my brain around is the outpouring of kindness from our family and friends.   For starters, my parents took the kids for a couple of days which was a huge help.  Throughout the day of the surgery, I was getting phone calls or text messages from so many people asking for  updates.  On Twitter and Facebook we were getting well wishes sent to us.  Even my husband’s cell phone, which was tucked away in my purse, kept vibrating with phone calls and messages.  Since he stayed in the hospital over night, his parents drove an hour to come and visit him.  Having them at the hospital that night for visiting hours meant so much to my husband.

It was a long day! We left the house at 5:30 that morning and I came home after 10 that evening.  While driving home, exhaustion was setting in pretty heavy.  The only thought on my mind was crawling into bed.  Until it dawned on me that I needed to get the trash and recycling containers to the curb.  It took me about 2 seconds to decide I wasn’t going to do that.  They could wait until the next collection day.

I pulled onto our street to find my trash and recycling containers at my curb! I’m not even kidding when I tell you I just about started crying.  My neighbors across the street who have a key to our house, came over and not only took care of the trash, but fed my animals as well! Other then texting them after the surgery, I hadn’t spoken to them that day to even ask them to do that.  They did it out of the kindness of their hearts and it absolutely meant the world to me.

When we got home from the hospital the next day after a very stressful car ride, there was a box sitting on our porch.  Once I got my husband situated, I opened it to find a box of goodies from friends of ours.  It was 4 boxes full of brownies and cookies and happiness, oh my!!  For those of you who may need a gift idea, check out Cheryl & Co.  It was perfect!

That evening, my neighbor Jo-Lynne came walking down the street with a dish in her hand.  As she approached me, she said “Here’s your dinner for tomorrow night.  I know your main chef is down and out.”  (FYI, I do not cook.  Nothing about it appeals to me.  I can make about 2 dinners and that is it).

I threw my arms around Jo-Lynne and gave her a big hug.  I was so touched that she took the time to prepare a meal my family.  And believe me, my husband and kids could not have been happier with the scrumptious chicken dish that broke up the monotony of my “cooking.”  And I am using the term “Cooking” very loosely!

Other friends have offered to mow our grass, pick up the kids from daycare, or simply come and sit with us.

My lesson for this week is a wonderful one.  We are truly blessed to have so many thoughtful and caring people in our lives.  The kindness that has been shown to us by so many people over these last few days will not be forgotten.  I can only hope that one day I can show them the same in return.

    Isn’t all that kindness geared towards you overwhelming? I love it! And it is so great to see it happen in your life.
    Our Sunday School class takes food to families after they have a baby (like most do). We have a large group and tend to provide food for about a month.
    I have taken food dozens of times and it is honestly my pleasure and I love doing it; no skin off my back and it’s a treat to see the new baby!
    When we had our first, I was overwhelmed to the point of tears (can anyone say hormones??) every time someone came to the door. To see the outpouring of love, all at one time coming to YOU is a miracle. And you are blessed to be a part of it!
    Hope his recovery keeps going well!
