A Compassionate Heart – Sow The Heart: One Story at a Time

A Compassionate Heart

Today I’d like to give a big thumbs up to “Shealan,” author of this letter which was received by the Children’s Hospital Foundation. 

random act of kindness

I often frequent the website of The Children’s Hospital Foundation and read their social media.  Seeing this letter made me think back to the correspondence and drawings I received in the hospital from my classmates after my “pioneering heart” surgery back in the early 1960s. The kindness was so memorable that I mention it in my  memoir because I believe it helped  with the healing process.

Parents, this summer if you hear the words “I’m bored” from your children, encourage them to write a short note or get well card to a child in your local hospital whose in need of a ray of sunshine in their day.


These kinds of random acts teach children kindness and compassion.

Shealan, you are a leader! Best Wishes.
