Last week we were sick. Really sick. I’d been sick since Sunday, and Jeremy and the big kids came down with it on Wednesday. On Friday morning, Baby starting running a fever and I was worried sick, thinking of all the different bad scenarios that could happen.
We were almost out of food, and I was this close to asking a friend for help. But before I could muster the humility and courage to do so, someone else saw my need and met it.
My friend Amy doesn’t even live in this state. She didn’t even know my address. But she knew my need, and figured out a way to meet it. At 4:30 PM, the doorbell rang and there was a huge delivery of food from Jason’s Deli. Somehow, Amy had coordinated with Jill and Crystal and they’d sent supper. These people don’t even live in my town!
At 5:30 PM, the doorbell rang and there was Andrea, who had also been recruited by Amy to bring food. She had a huge box of drinks, homemade soup, crackers, fruit, and so much more.
I cried. To have friends taking it upon themselves to meet my needs like that was amazing.
I know all of these women primarily through blogging. I sometimes refer to them as “blogging friends”, but when they do something like this? Pretty sure I can just call them friends, no adjective required.
What’s the nicest thing someone has done for you?
