Words We Need Most

EncourageWell, 
Here I am at day 99. Wow. 
Just wanted to log something that happened Thursday night.
As you guys know my wife has cancer and is going thru chemo. Her hair has fallen out but she is the most beautiful bald woman I have ever seen.

At dinner with the family at a local restaurant an older gentleman walked by on his way out and leaned over to whisper to me. He said “You have a beautiful family and I am praying for you.” Just random. 

Later the waitress from another table came by (different than the guy who spoke to me) and handed my wife a napkin with a note. The note read:
Hello friend, you don’t know me but I felt that God wanted me to tell you that you have a beautiful family, that he is proud of you and that things will be ok. 
Inside was cash for two times the amount needed for supper. 

Wife was in tears. Happy tears. We didn’t need the money but did need the words. It had been a rough couple of days. 

We will keep the cash and pay that forward to someone who may need it. 
Same for the words of encouragement. 

KTC is like the note scribbled on the napkin for us addicts. It is words of encouragement when we need it most. 

Stay quit brothers.
