Dog Train

If you are in Fort Worth, Texas, you might get a glimpse of an unusual train puttering down a road. You might have to do a double take, as you realize it’s a train filled with dogs! Eighty-year-old Eugene Bostick and his “dog train” are well known to locals. He’s been driving the tractor with eight barrels in tow for several years.It turns out the retiree built the train for the stray dogs he’s rescued with his brother over the years, after people have dumped the dogs near their property.“I started out with my tractor. I had a little trailer and I put four or five dogs in there and took them riding. Then more dogs started to show up and I said, ‘Uh-oh! That’s not enough room!’ That’s when I came up with that,” Bostick told NBCDFW explaining how the dog train came into being.Recently, Tiffany Johnson, who has seen him regularly go by her office, wanted to take a picture. “This is the coolest guy he rescues stray dogs and every morning he takes them for a train ride by our building, I finally got the courage up to ask if I could take his pic! Love this and had to share!” she wrote on Facebook after sharing the photo.

Tiffany told one commenter that the dogs don’t ever jump out. It seems they know exactly what to do and bark enthusiastically on their ride! When Tiffany was asked where Bostick finds the strays, she said, “he just rescues them from going to the pound!! He said people actually drop their dogs they no longer can take care of, off to him”. What a wonderful, kind man! The pups sure look like they love it!  Share this sweet story with your family and friends!

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.

Amazing Found Dog Story

This dog and her owner were in a bad traffic accident in the desert back in June.  Volunteers have been looking for the dog for the last 65 days.  They had an idea that the dog was in a certain area so they set a trap to bring her home.  Rose Sherman thought she would never see her sweet Ily ever again.  During the accident Ily ran off scared after the crash.  A group of volunteers watched the cage and listened on a baby monitor for the dog to wander in.  Finally she came by and they were able to trap the dog so that they could bring her home to her family.  Ily had avoided all human contact until she was reunited with Rose.  What a wonderful reunion it was.  Rose thought she might never see her faithful dog again.  Rose is still recuperating from her injuries she sustained in the accident.  Ily had missed a few meals but for being in the desert for 65 days she looks extremely well and is very glad to be back home with Rose.  What an amazing reunion.

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.

Best Proposal Ever

Have you ever seen these types of special proposals?  Some have people surprise their loved one and take them to special places to propose. This one is amazing. This guy not only thought of a great plan to propose but he created a movie and then he made arrangements to have his girlfriend to go to the movies with her brother to see the “trailer” before the movie they were set to see. She watched and wondered thinking that she recognized the voices in this trailer that they were watching.  She listened and then asked her brother if he thought that was “dad’s voice” in the movie.  As she watches the movie unfold it becomes more and more clear.  You need to watch this.  It is the best proposal ever.  Take a few moments to watch this great proposal.  It is the best ever really.  You can do wonderful things for those you love (maybe not to this extent).  Even the smallest act can be appreciated by your friends and family.

An Uncle Comes to the Rescue

A baby is trapped in a car after it goes down a 100 ft cliff.  To the rescue.. her uncle.  T. Blake Kimbrell was in the right place at the right time.  His little niece was still stuck in the car after an accident caused the car to go down a 100 ft cliff.  He used his light on his phone to be able to rescue his niece recording it all at the same time. He was following his sister as they went home when she lost control of the car and crashed down a cliff. The car was totally upside down with all the windows smashed out .  As he talked to the 11 month old telling her “Uncle Blake is going to get you out of here” he finally after two minutes hears a little cry.  He worked very hard , as we watch, until he is able to free the little one.  What a wonderful result.  I am sure he would do anything to save that little one.  He is so excited when he is able to pull the little girl free from the wrecked car.  Great job Blake.  What a great uncle you are and our hero for the day.

A Beautiful Bride with a Beautiful Song

Everyone invited to a wedding thought this would be your average wedding march played as the bride walks down the aisle with her dad.  Maria Holand Tøsse surprised everyone and especially her beloved one Ronny Eidsvik, when she went up the aisle singing in Alesund Church. As he walked her down the aisle her dad Charles Tøsse topped it all with his singing to the groom. It was all accompanied by great singers and musicians. This is a beautiful gift that the bride presented to her groom and to all in attendance.  He was truly touched as his bride walks down the aisle with her father to her new husband.  What an amazing voice.  This makes her special day even more special for all who were there thinking it was just going to be an average wedding.  But no this was like no other wedding they had seen.  How beautiful is the bride but her gift to her new husband is amazing.  We are so thankful that they shared this with all of us.  I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did.

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.

sisters reunited on facebook

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.
