Dog Saves Little Girl

This is a story from last winter about a little girl who wandered off from the family home.  Search and Rescue teams searched the area for 15 hours looking for missing three year old Victoria. She had wandered away from her home on a cold February night and got lost in the woods behind her house. Finally she was found and it was discovered that their family dog, Blue, a Queensland Heeler, had stayed with her all night and kept her warm in the cold temperatures. What a hero Blue is! Those that have pets in their family realize not only how much those pets mean to their family but also how much the family means to the pets.   You can tell it in this story of the little girl.  The dog knew she was not where she should be and that there was no one to take care of her except him.  So that is just what he did. He took care of her.  Who would know that it would turn out to be the family dog that saves her. What a great family member….even though he is a dog, he is a member of this family.

The Littlest Mailman

Carter and Postman Mike have been best buddies since Mike started delivering mail in his neighborhood.  The  four-year-old boy who idolizes his neighborhood letter carrier got the chance to see his hero in action. The United States Postal Service let the boy go behind the scenes and made him an honorary mailman for a day. The Knoxville Tennesee post office invited Carter to come to the post office and see what postman Mike does besides delivering mail.  They looked around and met the other postal workers.  Everyone was excited to meet Carter since they had heard so much about him.  They also presented him a gift of a hat and a little truck.  They gave him a certificate to make him an honorary post man.  How great for this post office to do this for this little 4 year old.  That is a bunch of caring individuals who would go out of their way to make this day special for this little guy. Great job  Knoxville.

A Mom’s Take on a Great Song

Today’s video is not news and after you hear it you will know that this song will not be “news” to any mom.  This song tells life like it is. This is a mom’s look at a great tune.  To all you moms out there you can relate.  This lady has a beautiful voice and took a very beautiful song and rewrote the words to reflect the feelings of every new mom.  Hope you enjoy the words and watching the little boy as he enjoys his mother’s voice.

A Couple Adopts A Family of Babies

The Justices spent more than 3 years trying to have a baby.  After contemplating expensive fertility treatments, they decided to adopt. After they met the birth mother and planned the adoption, the story took an unexpected turn. “We went to a meeting where she had an ultrasound and found there was not one baby but three babies,” said adoptive parent Amy Justice. Instead of adopting just one child, the Justices were adopting three. Hannah, Joel and Elizabeth were born in May. Then they were thrown another curveball. A week after the triplets were born, Amy found out she was pregnant with not one, but two babies. A boy and girl are due in January. They say they are excited, but also say that “God has a great sense of humor.” How wonderful that this couple that wanted a family could welcome not only one baby but in the end they have a family of 5.

Twin Brothers Find Each Other after 70 Years

I first need to warn you that this video today is very long.  The good news is you can get the majority of the story in just the first few minutes.  It is a great story that is worth the time to watch the entire story but if you don’t the best part (the reunion) is just a few minutes in.  Now for the story. This is a great story of two men who were born brothers but were separated at birth.  They did not even know that they were brothers let alone that they were twins.  They were removed from their mother when she was sent a labor camp in Germany.  They were adopted by two different families.  One brother only learned he was adopted when he went into the army. They knew that one day they would find each other.  They made arrangements to meet each other in Poland.  Once they met they spoke that they will not look back that the past is the past and they needed to look forward  and get to know each other.  The Red Cross helped then find each other and found information about their father in a museum – that he was an American soldier.  They found that by error the children were sent to Poland without their mother being notified.  So she didn’t give them up but that they were removed.  Now they have found each other and that is all that matters. How wonderful for these two men to find each other.

A Very Special Thank You

I challenge you to go get that box of tissues before you begin to watch this tribute video.  This is a video about a wonderful group of special people who have been on the news recently.  I can never say enough good things about nurses.  Nurses are the glue that holds the hospitals together.  Doctors are important but the care given by the nurses is so important. Now this video is not just about all nurses, it is about a very special type of nurse.  Those are the nurses who care for the youngest, smallest and most critical little babies.  Those little ones who many times never get to go home to their families.  She is their caregiver and their family at many times during their stay.  She cares for the little ones and for their families when they too need some love and attention.  Here is to the nurses.   Watch this one to the end… just when you think you got through the touching part….here comes the end and another tissue needed.  This one thanks one special nurse but there are many, many more out there.  So, if you happen to be one of those families who are in need of the care of these special people.  Take a moment from the craziness of your stay at the hospital and tell these wonderful people just how much they mean to you.  You will be glad you did. I would also like to thank Sharon A for sending us this story.

Girl finds sister on Facebook

Katie is looking for her mom an sister.  She has been looking for years and decided to finally try social media. She started a facebook page and posted a video of her reading a sign she created with all the details of her life and her family that she was looking for.  Within hours she was given the contact information of her sister. They were able to connect on the phone.  ”It wasn’t as uncomfortable as I thought it would be”, she said.  It was like they knew each other always.  What a wonderful thing this social media is when it can help families come together.  Let’s all spend our time on social media helping eachother like this situation.  What a wonderful story.  I look forward to hearing more great stories like this families coming together.  We can help people in many ways.  Watch for these ways when they come to you.

A Special Crossing Guard

Brad Curtis is a local crossing guard in Jersey shore.  He is a retired contractor.  He loves to help the children. He says it keeps him young.  But that is not who gets all the attention at this cross street.  It is his helper, Patches , the crossing guard dog. They love how cute the dog is with the stop sign jacket that he wears.  He is very well trained.  When Brad brought along little Patches they all said that the dog needed a uniform also.  The kids just love the dog and the neighborhood think that he is just the perfect addition to the neighborhood.  Anything that will help the children follow the rules helps.  They all love watching the dog and he loves the children.  Thank you Mr. Curtis for bringing Patches to help you.  Of course, Patches will only be on duty until the weather changes.  When it gets cold, Patches has to stay home.

Reunited with His Dad

32-year-old Gad lost contact with his father Melvin 7 years ago. When Gad was 16, both his parents went separate ways with his father Melvin relocating to the United States to start a new life. Gad’s wife Hayley contacted this radio station to help reconnect the two.   The son wonders if it is his fault that his dad  left and didn’t contact him anymore.   He has not been able to talk to him in 7 years and hasn’t seen him in 15 years.  His father lost track of everyone and didn’t know to get ahold of him.  He said he wanted to contact him but didn’t know how to reach him.  This radio show helped him connect and start his life together again.  He didn’t even know that he had grandkids.  We can only hope that these two families have reconnected and maybe some day will be able to see each other again.  Never let the time slip by and you don’t reach out to your distant family. They may be thinking of you too.  Too soon time will pass and they won’t be there to talk to. Don’t let that happen to you.  So happy for this son and his dad to be reunited.

A Powerful Reaction to Bullying

This is a great video created to speak against bullying.  Family is there for each other when they are needed.  Love eachother. Love your self for who you are. It is amazing how much this happens today. I think it probably has always been there but it can be taken so much further these days with all the social media.  This is a music video created by a dad for his little girl who had been bullied at school.  We all can learn from this video.  Sometimes something you might say you don’t realize can personally hurt someone just by the tone it is said.  It is not always the words sometimes it is the way it is presented. Let’s all do whatever we can do to make sure there is no more bullying.  We can’t let a child or even an adult feel like they are less than what they think they are.  Lift them up. Tell them how much you love them and how much they need to love themselves. Love Yourself.  Just remember, Love Yourself.
