As most of my myLot friends know I have a very close relationship with my daughter. She is my only child and she and hubby have given me two of the most beautiful grandchildren in the world. Grandson is 6 and grandaughter is 4 this year. My kids are my whole world and my daughter having taken such good care of her baby clothes gathered them up and turned them over to a lady who used them to make me the most gorgeous quilt you have ever seen for my bed and a note attatched to it that read, "Grandma, May the clothes that once warmed our bodies now warm yours. Love you forever." and their names were at the bottom of the note. The day my daughter gave me the quilt she called the kids into her bedroom had them lay down on her bed then she covered them up with the quilt and I was called into the bedroom. I could not believe my eyes. This is by far the nicest thing anyone has ever done for me. I sleep so well in the winter time with this quilt. I love it. I sometimes get looking at it and I remember buying that shirt or whatever and remember when the kids wore this stuff. It's amazing. Take Care

The nicest thing anyone has ever done for me was when my baby boy gave me his $10 from his wallet. I was sick and lying in bed with the flu or something. My husband was at work, and he had our only debit card at the time. My boy asked me why I don't get some medicine, and I said I didn't have any money right now. He walked out of the room and came back with a ten dollar bill. What he said was the best "Mommy you can have my dollars 'cuz I don't really need 'em and I'd pay a million trillion dollars to make you all better !" I almost fell of the bed. It made me feel so wonderful inside, I will never forget that day.

While I was in the Air Force stationed in Korea, there is a military event called a dining in, where all military folks have a semi formal dinner and evening of roasts so to speak. It's a nice military tradition. Anyway, I had planned to go, and the person who was to be there in my place got out of taking my place at the last minute. So, I had to work, and my supervisor who just came in to Korea, he had a soft spot for me somehow, he took my place while I went to the dining out. I thought that was the most professional, humble and sweetest thing he ever done. We got along very well and he was one of the people who recognized my abilities and encouraged me. I wish I could find him and tell him how much I appreciate it.

My mother in law always took care of me whenever I was sick, just like my mom would have. I had an ectopic pregnancy that required hospitalization and surgery, and she babysat for me, and came to visit at the hospital and home, bring me the best home-cooked meals ever. I'll never forget how loved that made me feel. It helped me get through a very hard time. Now she's 82 and diagnosed with cancer, and she still tries to do things for me and everyone else. She is an inspiration to me, and I always try to follow her example and help friends and relatives who need help. She keeps telling me she doesn't need help,but I try to do little things for her if she'll let me. One thing that made her happier than anything else was when I took her to get her hair done for the holidays. It's funny how such a little thing can mean so much.

When I was just out of school I was very broke and got into a rental agreement with another person. Both of our names were on the lease and we signed a year contract. A few months into the rental, the roomate, who had been hell to live with, decided to move out and stiffed me on rent and a lot of other bills such as phone and electrics. The worst part was that my mother had cosigned on the lease and if we broke it it would be her credit that was also adversely effected. I was just sick with dread and didn't see how I was going to get out of the hole. My son's godfather's mother learned of what was going on and gave me a cheque for the coming month's full rent, not even just the roomate's half. She told me it was there for me to use and not to worry about paying her back. It worked out that I didn't have to cash the check, I just starved for the next nine months and managed to keep my head above water, barely. It was such a kind thing, and I was so grateful to know I had a number of people to turn to when the chips were down and provide a saftey net, and also that I was able to pull myself out of the hole anyway. I think knowing I can pull myself out of holes when it seems hopeless, and knowing that safety net is there if I can't has enablesd me to take a lot of risks in my life that I might not otherwise have had the courage to take.
