acts of kindness

No kind action ever stops with itself. 
One kind action leads to another. 
Good example is followed. 
A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, 
and the roots spring up
and make new trees. 
The greatest work that kindness does to others 
is that it makes them kind themselves. 
~Amelia Earhart~

I'm gonna get real sentimental here for just a moment or two.
One year ago, our friends, neighbors and community did THIS for us
when we were down and out after our flooded home destroyed our B&B business. 

Tomorrow we are helping with a local fundraiser 
to benefit Gary Keeton a guitar player 
who occasionally plays with the Black Cat Choir. 
He is battling throat cancer.  


Gary 

Doug, Jay, Johnny, Frank, Rob 

Sam 

 


The time has come for all of us to band together, lend a hand to help our neighbor.
We are tiny, yet mighty  

The unbelievable sense of community, support and loyalty we have 
here in Round Top, Texas, 
Population 77 
is unmeasurable.

Matt and I  know this first hand.

Like my friend Chuck Sullivan said,
"Let's help Gary get through the difficulties 
of the treatment for throat cancer. 
Let's do what Round Top does best
help each other"
