I’m so Damn Proud of My Kids
My son, Brian (AKA Bob Hedge) was walking along Eastern Blvd. today and encountered a woman who asked him for .89 cents for bus fare. He gave her $10. As he walked on, he saw a homeless man. He was compelled to give him $20, and so he did.
I couldn’t be more proud of my kids. 🙂 As a Mom, there’s nothing that could make me more proud than to know they’re giving $ to strangers on the streets. Being compassionate, loving, and thoughtful goes a long way in this world, and people who do these things are at the top of my list, always.
Rock on, guys! I love you. NAMASTE xo

wow. I love that too. Yes Rock on with your Fine selves!!! You are a wonderful example that raised your children to be compassionate and care for the needs of others. I am not surprised, but it is soo nice to know these acts of kindness happen and make the world a better place. Well done. :)) xx

I know, Y. I was so proud of my son when he’d told me what he’d done! We really can’t ask for more than that as parents. I know when I’m gone from this world, I’ve been able to put forth good people who will carry on my legacy of helping and doing good for others. Warms the heart. 🙂

He’s truly one of the kindest, most loving and generous people I’ve ever known. What makes him so special to me is that he tries to act “Meh…everybody sucks. Die everyone. Meh…” (etc.) But he shows his true colours sometimes- it’s at the core of who he REALLY is. And that makes it so much more meaningful to me. :0)
