The Princess Guide: Kindess ROCKS!

Talk about the "deer in the headlights" look!!!  YIPES! If I hadn't already sent my photographers to school, we might be doing retakes on this one.  And no, I haven't had time to do a single thing to my hair.  Don't panic, Khristy Carley -- I'll get to it in a bit!!

Or maybe not!

So... Today's "Kindness Rocks" shirt is one of my very favorite shirts from the 3-Day, and I have to say it's probably the most-complimented shirt in my closet!  Every time I wear it, someone says something about it!  I LOVE it!

And it's soooo appropriate for today!  After last night's drama with my truck, so many people stopped to help.  Biggsy went to Wal-Mart and got a new battery -- didn't work.  So... this morning I called up some people who really personify "Kindness Rocks" and asked them for their help!

For those of you in Houston, Webb Automotive over on Mueschke is DA BOMB.  They know how crazy life is -- especially my life!  This morning they came and got my keys, arranged for my truck to be towed in, and are now in the process of replacing my starter (which is why the new battery didn't work!)

Tracie and Roy Webb are great supporters of Team Tiara -- they sponsored a hole at our Tee'd Off Golf Classic last month, and are just really incredible people.  Tracie is a SURVIVOR and definitely has a heart for what we do!!!

In keeping with the "Kindness" route, I was trying to think of some of my favorite examples of kindness on the 3-Day.  It's so hard, because to me that's just what the entire weekend is all about. 

The med tent guy who humored me and taped up my feather last year would have to be at the top of the list.

The first year I walked, another walker's Mom was everywhere we went.  I can't even remember her name, but she took care of us just like we were her own -- down to giving us band-aids.

A couple of years ago I lost my water bottle on Day 3. A family near White Rock Lake gave me a Gatorade bottle.

All the people who have let me pee in their bathrooms along the route.

Starbuck's Grande Chai Latte brought to me at camp.

Team members who have walked sloooooowly with me -- even though their paces are much faster!

The Tent Angels who set up our tents long before we get to camp.

Those are SUCH small examples and come nowhere near exhibiting the vast generosity you experience on the 3-Day!!!  Kindness ROCKS!

I was thinking about the bathroom strangers allowing people to pee in their bathrooms and the people that come in and refill the toilet paper and handiwipes for the porta pottys
