Do you think they put that arrow through the heart because love always hurts a little? A heart with an arrow through it seems pretty bruitful to me.
I was so excited to name today MINDY MONDAY, and SO annoyed when I realized, five minutes ago, that it is actually Tuesday. Whatever. Mindy Monday it still is.
Mindy is a young mama Monkee. She’s a pediatrician raising a two year old angel who is so beautiful it makes me wonder if God gave her some extra cuteness to help Mindy get through this excruciating time. You see, Mindy has stage three breast cancer, and is having a mastectomy today.
I’m never that IN to Valentine’s Day, I don’t totally get it . . . but I can wrap my arms around it today. Because this Valentine’s Day is MINDY DAY. Today, if you feel led, say a prayer for Mindy – and/ or DO a prayer for Mindy. Stay awake throughout your day and watch for an invitation to participate in a Random Act of Kindness. I called it a RAOK on facebook, but everyone thought I was asking them to send me pictures of their racks. Which is SORT of apropos for Mindy’s day – but not exactly.
Please dedicate your RAOK to Mindy, and then leave a comment about your experience.
Good stuff. Not a bad way to celebrate Love Day.
I sent this message to Mindy last night:
