There are some very nice people in this world and I don't think I am grateful enough for that some days. It's so easy to get caught up in the day-to-day and get frustrated. Or to focus on the negative or rude people around you. But those nice people that enter your life - man, that's the good stuff.
At Libby's last neurologist appointment, her nurse noticed her medic-alert bracelet. It's from Lauren's Hope and we've always been a big supporter of them. However, the bracelets are pricey and so Libby has had to make do with the same one for a couple of years. It's cute but she's outgrown it for sure.
Well, I got a call yesterday from this wonderful nurse telling me she had a present for Libby. I was astonished - we don't know her outside of the doctor's office. I stopped by and picked it up and was almost moved to tears. As it turns out, she makes jewelry as a hobby. And she made Libby 8 - eight - EIGHT!!! - new bracelets to attach to her medic-alert tag.
But you know what? It's not "nothing." To a soon-to-be middle-school girl who has had to deal with this crappy diagnosis since she was 5, this was HUGE - she has to wear the bracelet at all times and to be able to have cooler older-kid styles and colors for middle school - this was HUGE.
So Carol - thank you. You have no idea how nice this was!!! You have made my week. :) And it was a whole lot of "something."
