7 days ago I pinned this on the group board, "The Parent Water Cooler," because it was something I had been raised to do and I thought this story was a touching illustration. I have been totally tipped on my head by the response: 108 comments - 1 wonderful story after another, 1074 likes! and 3232 repins. This crusty old broad is in awe of the love and kindness that was displayed here - almost always anonymously and w/o mention of religion. I bow to all of you. Oh, and pass it forward.
