random stories...

Since I was about 12, I have been very sick with a collection of rare diseases. My whole life I have had a quirky, flirty, outgoing disposition, but sadly, chronic illness does not suit such a lifestyle, and sometimes even your best friends don’t stick around when life stops being so carefree.

When I was 19, I became acutely ill while traveling for treatment in Orlando, a thousand miles away from home, and I was stranded there for three and a half months. Fortunately for me, my best friend Tiffany went away to school in Orlando. One evening I was highly surprised when more than 60 fraternity guys filed into my room at the Ronald McDonald House. They serenaded me with a couple of my favorite songs, and finally they presented me with a lavalier. Tiffany’s friend Eric had orchestrated this grand surprise for me. Eric gave a lovely speech stating that being lavaliered is something equivalent to a proposal and that I had a whole bunch of Phi Delta Theta boys who loved me. I was so truly touched that Eric, who really didn’t even know me, went to such effort just to make me happy.

Recently, a senior at my high school committed suicide, and it really took a toll on the community as a whole. There was a weird vibe through the halls the following days, and everything just seemed so depressing. A few days ago, I got to school, and on every single locker there was a sticky note with a compliment, such as “You’re beautiful” or “Stay amazing.” It’s really great to see that even though life sucks sometimes, there are still nice people out there.

When I was newly divorced, I took my three young sons to the bank, where I found out that my direct deposit hadn’t gone through. I was close to tears, as I needed that money desperately, but I just said, “Thank you” and left.

When I got into the parking lot, I heard an older gentleman yell, “Excuse me! Wait!” He then reached out and handed me a $100 bill. “You look like a good mother,” he said, “and I just want to help.” He saved me that day, and I’ve thanked him in my mind so many times since then.
