Yesterday I woke and wept. Just a little bit. I miss him.
I made his favorite coffee and shuffled down the five steps into my ground level office to work. I wondered if others would think of him and tried to remember the way he started his birthdays.
Quiet. Like most mornings.
So I started that way too.
Through out the day these acts of kindness buzzed into my phone and I’m forever grateful for the people who did something kind in remembrance of Roy. There’s still time.
Because of you, the following energy and acts of goodness entered the world.
