"Dear Rian - I stumbled across your Puj video from a recommendation about Puj's products. We have two little girls, our eldest will be three in October and our youngest is just about to turn 16 months. Your family is so beautiful and your eagerness to expose your children to the new and unfamiliar is just wonderful! I will be thinking of you, your work and love for your children, and of course your youngest girl for a long time to come. At the risk of coming across wrong, but wanting to avoid (to me) the greater risk of not engaging, I had to ask you ... what can we do to help?
I happened to get this email after a long day of battling our insurance. I cried reading it. I racked my brain for an answer. What could someone I don't know, who doesn't live near me, do for us? Here is a clip from my response:
" I have thought and thought and wondered and contemplated. In the end it seems to me that the biggest help is what you have already done: reaching out. I have truly felt so loved and cared for by your message. To have someone step through the fear of being misunderstood and extend their friendship is so powerful. Thank you."
In the end I don't think it matters what you do, just that you do. Thank you Lousie and the rest of your kind. My life is bettered because of you.
