But for the Kindness of a Stranger

A very special thank you to the complete stranger who walked into our vet clinic waiting room on Friday evening with this beautiful bunch of flowers in her hand. She went to the counter to pay her account. Then she walked over to me to ask if I was ok. That was all it took for the tears to start flowing. It's been like that a lot lately. Harder than hell.

After what was a very difficult consult with my beloved little Mack, I went to the counter to pay, only to find that she had left her bunch of flowers behind, and asked that they be given to me. It touched me deeply that a complete stranger could be such a kind, thoughtful, generous and giving soul to someone they didn't even know. She mentioned that she's going through the same thing with one of her animal companions. My heart goes out to her. I hope my card of thanks arrives safely, and she knows just how much I appreciated her very kind gesture.

Love & light
