Thank goodness for the kindness of strangers

Hello lovelies I'm back...seem to be saying that a lot lately.. life just seems to take over sometimes and I know that everyone has the same thing from time to time.

It never ceases to amaze me how kind and wonderful complete strangers can be during times of crisis.
Last week youngest Miss C went with a group of friends to the Australian Open tennis. This is quite an adventure as we live at least an hour drive away from Melbourne.......

a great time was had and we kept in contact throughout the day via text message.... Miss C had just phoned to ask what time she was expected home and all was well.

I'm sure you can imagine my blind panic when a stranger phoned some 15 minutes later asking about Miss C's medical history explaining she had collapsed!!!!!!!

OMG....instant panic..... yes the ambulance came and whisked Miss C to hospital.....

How thankful I was that the complete stranger..kept me up dated on Miss C's condition and on what had happened. She phoned a number of times and kept me calm as we dashed to get to the hospital!!!
Afterwards she sent messages to check on the status of Miss C.

Apparently she had helped Miss C and her friends during the episode.. before the ambulance and medics arrived....

The lady was so kind and understanding......making me think of  the kindness that wonderful bloggers  share....

So to Tracey...THANK YOU... you are simply the best!!!!!

Miss C is OK...needing further medical tests.....

Wishing all a wonderful week
