Yesterday we spent most of the day at Stanford Medical Center for appointments with Evan. It was going to one of those days where our bottoms were going to get very tired of sitting. At one point we had about forty five minutes between appointments. So, we decided to walk the halls. We walked past the surgery waiting room. (My does that bring unpleasant memories, but that is another story). There was a lady playing classical music on the harp, so we stopped for a few minutes to listen. At one point a little family came up with a toddler in a stroller. The harpist said, "let me play something she might know". She started to play ever so softly and sweetly "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star", while the child watched wided eyed. As, I listened and watched, I thought how touching, just a simple little act of kindness, can gladden a heart. It's was just a small thing.
By the way, Evan is doing great!! Both doctors we saw were pleased with how well things are looking. We always like that good news.
