After a beautiful hike today, my friends and I went out to eat.
As I sat at the table, I was facing the bar and saw someone wearing a sweatshirt with a message directly speaking to me.
I said to my friends- I have to go up there and see if I can buy this off his back. Grabbed my phone to make a monetary transaction.
went up to him, introduced myself and complimented the sweatshirt and how the message spoke to me.
I lightly shared my health situation- and asked if I could buy it off his back.
He told me it was his first day wearing the sweatshirt- he just got it. And he shared that his younger brother was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 17 and that today he called him to say he’s been cancer free for 8 years now.
There are no coincidences in messages and meeting people.
Andy took his sweatshirt off his back and handed it to me. Refused any money for it.
We hugged, took a selfie, and connected on fb.
I told him I will wear this on my first day of chemo.
I thanked him, my heart was full, my friends were in awe.
We finished up lunch, I got in my truck and cried the whole way home.
Such a kindhearted soul.
Andy, I didn’t want to tag you without permission- but I hope you read this post.
