Unsung kindness

Thank you!

Speaking for myself and my husband, we would like to extend our thanks to a population of persons who go unsung far too often. You see, both my husband and I are persons with disabilities, and we would like to, genuinely, extend our thanks to those who do the small but valuable things without judging or acting put out. Things such as holding doors open… doors are difficult to hold open and wheel through at the same time! Or, aid me when I fall out of my wheelchair for one reason or another. That is so humiliating when that happens! Or when my husband runs off the pavement in his power chair. Sometimes it is almost impossible to right a chair when it begins to go wrong! Even those who want to ask a question, but it is out of genuine curiosity… there is no such thing as a stupid question as long as it is sincere and not unkind or mocking! There are so many little things that we appreciate, but I am hard pressed to think of everything right now. Anyway! We just wanted to make sure that those persons know that we notice these things, we surely do appreciate it, and we truly would like to thank you all.

Shirley Crisci,
