Kermit’s Cup of Tea: Friday Findings

img_4043Happy Friday, friends! I hope you had a beautiful and productive week. If you’ve been following the Kermit Says… Snapchat (@kermitsays), then you know exactly what’s been going on in my life. So many incredible changes and opportunities are heading my way, it almost feels like I’m dreaming. Sometimes it’s even overwhelming, but it’s all good things, exciting things, life-changing things, and I can’t wait for this next chapter for it’s reminded me that when good things happen to you, it’s important to keep the ball rolling and pay it forward.

Be the good for someone else. 

Today I’m sharing a heartwarming story about a man who does more than pays it forward. In fact, I’d suffice it say he serves as an inspiration to us all by spreading love, care, and joy to those who need it most. Take a look:

 

 

Mohamed Bzeek, a 62-year-old Libyan-born, devout Muslim who currently lives in Los Angeles, California, has spent nearly two decades as a foster father to severely and terminally ill children. According to Department of Child and Family Services intake coordinator, Melissa Testerman, Bzeek is the only one in the county who would take in a child who might not survive. Bzeek says “the key is to love them like your own.”

I am confident that if we lived in a world where there were more people like Mohamed Bzeek, more people who loved their neighbor like themselves and cared for those who are often forgotten and lost in a system that wasn’t designed to fully support them, then this world would be a better place. Read the entire article here.
