What is the kindest thing anyone ever did for you?
I'm in the middle of counting my blessings, you see, and when asked this question it took me a while to think of the first one, then many more have come to mind.
The kind thing that my friend Barb did was to encourage -- no, insist -- that with her I be myself. She made me laugh out loud, she let me lay on her couch and drip snot, she came and got me when I needed her to, she let me come and get her. She loves my kids.
Barb let me be me. And she loved me anyway. God I miss her.
