Thank You Thursday {12}

As you know, at the end of last month I went to Colorado. I had the time of my life there! The places I saw and the people I met will stick with me forever. However, this trip would not have been possible if it weren’t for three very generous people.

The Colonel

J&L W. and D.A.

Thank you. Thank you from the tops of the mountains and from the bottom of my heart. Without you, this trip would not have been possible. Not only did you provide a crucial upgrade to my mode of transportation (The Colonel – my chair’s name), but you gave me the most wonderful place to stay. The hotel suite was a dream that I could have lived in forever.  For some people a hotel can matter very little but seeing as I have to have rest days between adventures, where I stay really makes a difference. The suite was wheel chair accessible with so much room to get around.   D.A., those eleven days in Colorado were a montage of little smiles.

Kyle and the Team at Wichita Falls Discount Tire

Thank you so much for staying open late to change and balance the tires on the trailer that hauled my power chair – AND FOR FREE! When we came in hoping to resolve the vibration for the long trip to Colorado, you told us where we could buy the trailer tires (that you didn’t stock) and took care of us after business hours when we returned. The kindness that you and your team showed us is humbling and inspiring.

It’s fun to leave random notes anywhere and everywhere (other ideas).

Left these rocks at Texas Neurology for anyone in need of a little inspiration.

random rocks

Picked up a few bouquets, divided them into mini bundles in our van, and then left them with a note on random vehicles in the parking lot.
The note read, “Science shows that a single smile has the equivalent hormonal value of a bar of dark chocolate. So, share a smile and create a daisy chain of cheer.”

Put a dollar bill in your movie rental and return it for someone else to find.
