Random Act of Kindness at Walmart

Here is an interesting retelling of a random act of kindness witnessed at a Sioux Falls Walmart recently.  This report illustrates the event and then shows the actual video that was taken by someone who observed what happened.  I love hearing stories where people see a need and fill it without expecting anything in return.  People taking care of people.  That is what it is all about.  This story was a mother who needed diapers and the store would not honor a coupon she had.  When she decided to leave another customer saw what was happening and offered to pay for her diapers.  So moved by the act she went out to the parking lot and cried.  The woman who bought her the diapers asked her to someday return the favor by helping someone else in need.  How wonderful it is when someone fulfills a need for others.   Today’s random act of kindness hero is Carol Flynn.  Thank you Carol for seeing the need and acting.  What if everyone did something (even a small something) for others.  What a better place this world would be.

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!

Random Act of Kindness at Chick-fil-A

Today’s story is one we hear about more often these days.  Thanks to Patricia M for sending us this story.  We can never hear about it often enough.  This random act of kindness happened in Texas.  One Monday a man named John decided to go through the drive through at Chick-fil-A.  He paid for his meal with ten one hundred dollar bills.  His random act of kindness paid for the meals for 88 other people besides his own.  You never know how something as small as paying for a meal will effect another.  The people working there that day tell of many stories they heard from the people who were the recipients of this kindness.  One lady had had such a bad day that broke into tears when hearing that John had paid for her meal.  The people working that day were also touched by this kindness.  One gentleman reminds us all that we just need to take the time to treat people better.  Have you ever received a random act of kindness like this one?  Have you ever done one of these for others? Why not today?   Why not you?

Young Boy’s Act of Generosity

Baseball, America’s pastime.  The thing that young and old alike enjoy.  Nothing more fun than going to the ballpark to watch your favorite team.  This is a dream of many young boys.  They love to watch the game and imagine they are playing.  Sometimes they get close enough to be part of the game. This is a story of a young boy who was in the right place at the right time.  His favorite team the Arizona Diamondbacks were playing the Milwakee Brewers.  A player tosses a ball up in the stands.  Two boys go for it but the Diamondbacks fan Ian McMilian catches the ball and returns to his seat.  As he turns to sit down he notices that the other boy (the Brewer’s fan) is upset.  Without direction he goes down and gives the ball to the other boy.  What an amazing act of generosity.  This boy is our hero.  He didn’t even hesitate or have to be told to do this for the other boy.  He didn’t expect anything in return.  With the announcers watching in amazement they arranged for Ian to get an autographed bat.  Mom and Dad McMillian you should be very proud of your little boy.  You too are our heroes with the way you have raised this young man.

Doctor hero to walk her down the aisle

Tissue Alert!!  This one will tug at your heart.  Thank you to Patricia M for another great story. This one is about a little 4 year old girl who becomes ill and is taken to the hospital on Christmas Eve.  The doctor (Dr. Alex Levy) discovered a cancerous brain tumor.  What horrible news for her family.  The little girl’s father told the doctor that all he wanted to know was if he was going to be able to walk his daughter down the aisle when she gets married. The doctor told the dad that he was going to do everything he could to make that happen.  After several surgeries and treatments the little girl is now well and appears to be cancer free.   What a wonderful gift this doctor gave to these parents.  This little girl is back to school and is a growing healthy little girl. Recently the father called the doctor and asked that when his little girl grows up and is ready to get married, he would like the doctor to come to the wedding and walk the little girl down the aisle.  Dr. Levy said that when that happens he will probably retire after that since there could not be a great high and a sense of fulfillment after that.  What a wonderful doctor and a loving man to this family.  Dr. Levy, you are our hero.

A Slippery Situation

Today’s story is just here to put a smile on your face and to get you ready for the weekend.  It is about a very slippery situation brought about due to a squirrel problem.  Make sure you listen to the folks in this video as they enjoy the show put on by the local wildlife.  A Rock Squirrel was raiding their bird feeder, not just eating but carrying away pounds of seed.  The couple thought and thought about how they could discourage the squirrel from bothering them.  Nancy figured a solution.  She coated the pole with Vaseline.  Who would have thought of that.  I don’t know which is funnier, the squirrel or Nancy’s narration.

They tell us that they have “trained” the squirrel not to bother that feeder anymore.  It didn’t even require any more applications of Vaseline.  Good thinking Nancy.  And yes… it made me laugh too.  Sometimes we just need something to chuckle at in the morning.  Thanks to Patricia M for sharing this video with us.  This was just a sweet video to watch and just brought a smile to my face.  I hope you enjoyed it.

A slippery situation

Construction workers come in all sizes

Renzo Lombardi is a little boy who has had a hard life.  In his short 3 years Renzo, suffers from a kidney cancer known as Wilms’ tumor.  He had that tumor removed but it did require chemo treatments.  Being a normal little boy he loves trucks.  He also loves construction work.  He requested his wish from the Make-A-Wish foundation to work on a construction site.  The city of San Francisco granted his wish by having him become the foreman on a site in downtown San Francisco.  ”Renzo has loved construction trucks since he was an infant, and will be able to see all of these incredible machines up close, riding in the cab, using the controls—this wish is the one thing his parents say helped him keep his mind off of treatment ” said Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area Executive Director, Patricia Wilson in a press release. What an adorable little boy.  How wonderful is it that San Francisco does have the heart to provide these experiences for sick children who have been through so much.  This is an experience little Renzo will never forget.  I believe all of the people at that construction site will not forget this experience soon either.  They all seemed to enjoy the time he spent on the site.  Thanks to Patricia M for sharing this story with us.

The Healing Touch of a Pet

When little Caleb was injured in a head on collision there didn’t seem to be much hope for recovery.  He suffered a tramatic brain injury.  The tissues in the brain slammed forward killing many cells in his brain.  He also had a broken leg and arm.  His recovery was going to take a very long time.  Watching this video you see his progress and his improvement.  This improvement was helped along by the help of a therepy animal. Colonel was the name of the dog that they use at his hospital.  The healing touch of this dog made all the difference. Once the dog was added to his therepy you could see how much he wanted to play with the dog.  He was doing things to play with the dog that allowed him to use his body to improve just by “playing” with the dog.  What an amazing improvement he made by playing with this dog.  As you continue to watch his improvement is amazing.  Playing with the dog makes Caleb forget that he is really in therapy.  The love his has for the dog is a key to his development and recovery.  Thanks to the volunteers and the animal program that this hospital provided helped save this little boy.  What an inspiring story.
