I promised to say something nice about Trish. Actually, that should be easy as Trish is a good friend, and a great wrestler, who I’m sure will bounce back from her injury better than ever.
But the nice thing I wanted to say about Trish concerns the young girl I sponsor in the Philippines. A few days ago, I received my first letter from her since I saw her in Manila two months ago. The slow delivery time of the letters is about the only drawback of my whole relationship with Christian Children’s Fund.
Anyway, in her letter, Herma Grace let me know how much she had enjoyed all of the new things she had experienced. The airplane ride, the hotel, the movie, the carnival and the WWE show.
And the last lines in her letter reads: “Dad please give my regards to Trish. I like her for being so friendly to us.” It made me think of Trish and the family. How she had held the girls’ hands (Herma’s two younger sisters) and went for a walk with them one night at dinner. How she had been so glad to take photos with them after our show, and how she’d encouraged other WWE Superstars to do the same.
I have a little paperweight at home that reads “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” I think that’s true. And I think that to a few special kids in the Philippines, Trish’s small acts of kindness will never be forgotten.
