Wierd event that I just *have* to share....

Today I get a PM from someone, the name is vaguely familiar as someone who is on one of the Pagan lists I am on, but I am not sure. They start asking me some oddly phrased questions, I start to delve more into who this person is and what they are looking for from me. He says he is lookin g for a ride to the next Spiral Scout meeting (Spiral Scouts is a scouting organization liek boy or girl scouts but from a Pagan perspective and we have been holding interest meeting to start a local chapter) Turns out that this poor man is 30, he doesn't have children- he was looking for a group for himself. He has Cerebral Palsey and his mother (who was Wiccan) passedaway earlier this year and left him basicly to care for himself. Being a parent fo a child with special needs myself, I know a bit about the system of services and who can help this man. The fates put me in his path to help him find the things he needs, and I am so glad it was me to be there. I am compiling information for him and will send it on later this evening. Sometimes seeing life from another's perspectibve is all you need to find contentment in yourself.

I think that is quite the compliment to you Khris. He easily could have been sloughed off and here you are so open & willing to help. I really like that about you! You make my heart grow & the water leak out of my eyes. xoxoxoxoxoxoxox
