Thoughtfulness

Today we went to a BBQ our church had. It was so hot, so we only stayed for a little while. Plus, we don't know many people so that's always a bit weird too. Anyway, we ran into the funeral director, Brent. He walked up to me and asked how we were doing, even telling me he tried to call this week to see how we are. When I told my mom she said he'd even called her phone to see how she is. I just have to say how thoughtful that is! I mean, he's not a friend, he's done his 'job' and could easily just move on, doing his job. But, he's allowing God to use him- it's awesome to see too because he's a new Christian. I'm just so touched by people's kindness.

Also, I think I forgot to mention that when I was getting my pedicure done my doctor called me. All the tests they ran on me, the chromosome test they ran on Nathaniel and the tests they ran on the placenta came back normal. So once again we have no 'answer' as to why this happened. I didn't think it would 'bother' me but it kind of does. I mean, if I had an 'answer' like "You have a blood clotting disorder" or something then I'd know how to 'fix' it. In this case I have nothing. Just my little string of faith in God. And that's better than anything else, I know, but sometimes it's just hard to go on! The doctor was so kind also, to ask how I'm doing. It was hard because here I am getting a pedicure and I just wanted to cry! I was honest, saying I'm doing ok. I see her in like a week and a half so I guess she's going to go over the tests with me and all. Just one more person doing their job and showing kindness. She didn't have to call me after 6 pm!

I was suprised when you told me the dr. called you at night!

That was soooo nice of the funeral director--wow! Does he go to your church? It's just so thoughtful when people go 'above and beyond' their job like that.

It's awesome when you get a doctor, or other professional, that really cares and goes out of their way to show it.

Thats so wonderful to have those people who are almost like strangers( well not family/friends) who cared enough to call to see how u were doing.
