Most people are good

Have you heard the Luke Bryan song "Most People Are Good"? It's one of Bella and I's favorite songs. It's a great song!

"I believe most people are good and most mama's oughta qualify for sainthood...
I believe this world ain't half as bad as it looks. I believe most people are good."

If you ever see us jamming out in the minivan, it very well might be to this song. We blast it!

Here's the thing, there's so much bad in this world but what if, just what if we spend more time focusing on the good?

I reached out a few days ago to the founder of the Lucky Fin Project, Molly Stapleman, about music and a recorder. Bella's PE teacher this year mentioned that in the second semester they do recorders in music and she was thinking about how Bella would do that. (Side note: I love that she's thinking about Bella and how she can help her or what might help her even if it's NOT a PE thing. That's amazing!) Molly is an amazing advocate for children with limb differences. Hello she founded the Lucky Fin Project! I've followed her since before Bella was born. I should add that I've never actually met her in person, someday though, someday!

Molly offered to send us a recorder for Bella for FREE! This might not seem like a big deal to the rest of you. However for a kiddo with one hand that just wants to do everything that everyone else does, it's GIANT!! I was brought to tears when she said she'd send one and then said it was free. I offered to pay and she said no. Who does that? I'll tell you who, Molly does!

The community for kids and families of kids with limb difference is nothing short of amazing. I know I'm super passionate about it. I might even annoy the crap out of people with my excitement but seriously, be the good there is in this world. Everyone should be a little more like Molly!
