Good morning. Very early morning.
As 2020 kicks off I had grand plans for MyFriendDeAnna.com and I was looking forward to getting started on “finding kindness stories” and then life happened. My Mama had to get a hip replacement surgery in a fairly fast time frame. (Her MRI was done 12/21 – surgery 1/27) She did great and I’m hopeful her pain is minimal and she can get back the quality of life she was enjoying before.
Whenver people ask me what my goal is for MyFriendDeAnna.com is I always tell them, “I want to teach people to be kind, I want to encourage people that they matter.”
I was very fortunate to be raised by parents that loved me, they didn’t make things perfect for me, but they let me fail because they knew in my failings, I would grow.
Last year was a great year for me, I was introduced to several organizations in the Triad and able to work with Guilford Education Alliance, Wellspring Solutions, and Ronald McDonald House of Winston Salem. I was also able to touch base wit other individuals who are making a difference in their community. With each of these groups I participated with them to #MakeKindnessLoud in my community. If it was collecting school supplies, serving memory care patients or collecting pop tabs for my #poptabchallenge I was able to do something to make a difference AND I HAD HELPERS!!! People showed up to help me and they had fun as well.
So as 2020 is now in full swing (January is almost over – can you believe that?) I’m launching my website in full force now that Mama is done with her surgery.
