Today would have been my daughter’s 38th birthday. She passed away when she was six years old from leukemia. I think of her everyday and the joy she brought to everyone she met. I received so many wonderful and thoughtful gifts during her illness. This poem was sent to us while we lived in Seattle, Washington during Nakole’s bone marrow transplant. As I reflect on her short life I remember the many acts of kindness she inspired. Today, I encourage you to inspire kindness in those around you. God Bless you and yours.
