|Elle, Brigitta and Me!|
What happen next was not expected. The next day I had opened my email and noticed several emails from moms in the group. They all expressed their sadness to see me go. Moms I had never exchanged emails with or knew personally. Some of them made suggestions to apologize to the group organizer. It all was so great. Hearing from other moms meant that they had been there the whole time listening to me. It brought me to tears. I was really moved by their kind acts.
The first person to email me was Brigitta Schumacher-Bradley, she was very kind with her words. Telling me to hang in there and push on. She encouraged me to continue with my blog and not let negative comments get in the way. At least that is what I remember. As I pushed on month after month of getting past the fear of being read. Brigitta Schumacher-Bradley sent me an invitation to a blogger event in August to attend a blogger event at the Aquarium of the Pacific. It was another small act of kindness by forwarding me an invitation to a blogger event that helped me to continue with writing the blog. She has been an angel to me. Brigitta's encouragement and small acts of kindness have changed me. In a moment of despair I needed a kind word, a gentle push and encouragement. A complete stranger who saw my words on an a message board and replied made all the difference to me.
I was very lucky to meet Brigitta in person this summer at OC blogger Bash. She was kind, soft spoken and very friendly. Brigitta Schumacher-Bradley who is with MOMSLA has been an inspiration of kindness. A stranger who believed I could and helped me push fear to the side. I am writing this post to tell her how much it meant that she took the time to help me.
Brigitta thank you for being so kind and sharing your invitation with me. It made a world of difference in my life and my family's life. May you find kind people to help you with you dreams. Know that you have a friend in me always. Thank you, Alma
