Hey Kids it’s Dad, and for today’s TommyLog I want to talk to you about an email I received. The email was from a dear friend. Over the years she’s accumulated a lot of scarves. Beautiful woven silk scarves. She wants to put these scarves to good use. She has a friend who is battling cancer. The scarves could go to good use. So what my friend did is build a “chest of scarves.” Along with a book on how to tie scarves, this chest filled with beautiful scarves will help this lady going through cancer feel beautiful again.
I think were touched me the most about this tender gift was the fact that it is perpetual in nature. As soon as you beat cancer, share your story and then give the chest to someone else so they can be beautiful and they can have the assistance they need to beat cancer too.
One of my favorite scriptures is this: “And behold, I tell you these things that ye may learn wisdom; that ye may learn that when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God.”
Such a touching reminder of great people in this world. Putting others first in such a manor – I’m blown away!
