A few weeks ago I wrote a post about my whole family coming down with a cold.
I had been so self congratulatory about having had a healthy family all winter. Too self congratulatory, obviously.
The very day that I posted about everyone being sick I received a very nice email wishing me and my family a speedy recovery.
I also received comments and tweets from friends “checking in” to make sure we were all right.
It really brought home to me how powerful cyberspace is. In a matter of minutes of saying that I didn’t feel well, I had people checking in on me, and my family.
Such a beautiful thing.
It didn’t end there. The next day this arrived on my doorstep.
A whole stash of over-the-counter cold-care products to help relieve our cold/cough symptoms.
If that and the emails, comments and tweets are not random act of kindnesses, I don’t know what are!
I feel very blessed.
Disclosure: I’m assuming I was sent a care package of Vicks VapoRub products because I am a part of the Vicks VapoRub Blogger Brigade.
