Happy Mother’s Day

Due to an amazing story of a mom getting rescued on Friday we moved our Mother’s Day story to today.  I hope you all had a great day with Mom and I hope you will enjoy this message because everyday should be Mother’s Day.  Don’t let any day go by where you don’t tell someone whether it be your mom or your dad or just anyone just how much they mean to you.  Life is short and time goes by so fast.  If you wait it could be too late.

Tissue Alert… This one will touch your heart. I know this is a Telefloral commercial but it is much much more.  This is such a touching message for all mothers out there.  I dare you not to be emotional as you watch this message created by a son for his mother. This is an amazing video. Please take a few minutes to watch this great video.  After the video … call someone you care about and say “I Love You”.  You will be glad you did.

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

Aldi Worker Helps Elderly

Here is a story of an employee seeing a need and meeting it.  Christian is a worker at Aldi grocery store in the United Kingdom.  Working there he noticed a few customers that needed a little more help than others.  Checking with his manager he got permission to help this elderly man.  The man was afraid to go home alone due to the weather outside. Christian carried the man’s groceries and walked him home.  What a wonderful gesture for this young man to do for his client.  How many of us would have dropped what we were doing and walked a stranger to his home.  This is the kind of thing we should all do without regards to our own time.  Helping others in any way possible.  Way to go Christian. You are a great employee and a wonderful person.

Could you pick out your mom?

No words are neccessary for this lovely little video.  It was a small experiment of women’s uniqueness and the special bond between a mother and child.  They met up with 6 wonderful women, and asked them to let us blindfold their most precious loved ones. Their children!  Here is what happened: The children were guided towards the group of women, and using their senses and intuition asked to try to find the one they believed to be their mother. Anxiety, love and a bit of heartfelt tears filled the room as children from the age of 3-9 tried and succeed in finding the one and only they could call mom! All women are unique in shape, personality and heart, and so is the beautiful connection and precious love we saw this day.  This was a video commercial created for Pandora but the lesson we can learn from it is that our mom is special to each of us and we can alway find our sweet mom even if we are blindfolded.  This was truly a sweet experiment.

She writes a message to her dad

Teenager tells her astronaut father she loves him by writing giant message in the desert that can be seen from SPACE. Stephanie from Houston, Texas, has a father who works as an astronaut. She wrote a message on land that could be seen from the space station using 11 cars that created the 59 million sq ft message in Nevada’s Delamar Dry Lake. Sending post to space is problematic, so when a teenager from Houston, Texas, wanted to send a message to her astronaut father, she had to be creative.
13-year-old Stephanie decided that long-distance phone calls weren’t enough and she wanted to given her father a visual note of how much she missed him while he was away.
The next time the NASA employee was up in space, she decided to create a huge art project in the desert that he would be able to see from the International Space Station.  Her father is a keen photographer and likes to take pictures of the earth when he is floating in space. Stephanie thought she could use his hobby to send him a message from back on earth.

She enlisted the help of car manufacturer Hyundai to make the earth drawing, that has now broken a world record for its size. The car company used eleven sedans to draw the message on the land in Nevada’s Delamar Dry Lake, that read ‘Steph [hearts] you!’ using coordinates and a helicopter.Her father took a picture of the image from space to show his daughter that her plan had worked. Measuring 5,556,411.86 square metres or 59,808,480.26 square feet, the Guinness World Record has now declared it the largest tire track image ever.What a clever idea and a great plan to tell Dad that you love him.

Rainworks – Rain Activated Art

Happy Earth day!!  Here is a great story about caring for the earth and joy to people at the same time.Peregrine Church is a man with a plan.  He creates street art that only shows up when it rains. Hidden when dry, these messages or images appear on sidewalks all over Seattle and are meant to brighten your day, even when it’s gray and rainy!  He was watching a video on the internet one day showing a guy demonstrating a chemical that would keep you dry.  They were pouring red wine on white clothes and nothing soaked in.  He thought this could be something we could use to bring message to people on rainy days.  Living in Seattle he began creating these messages all over town.  This product is environmentally safe.  It is just plain clever and fun to those who cross these messages.  What a great idea to use this to bring joy to people on rainy days.  Great job sir.  I think we should be using this everywhere to just bring a little message of joy to people.  I love this idea.  What do you think?  So simple yet it can be so powerful.

Makeovers for everyone

For the residents at Mount Olivet Senior Care Center a group stylists called “I AM KINDNESS” came into the center to do makeovers on some of the residents.  After the makeover they took them to a photographer who created some very special photos of these ladies.  After all that they were escorted into the room to share their new looks with everyone.  How special of a day for these lovely ladies.  Some of them said that they have never had a makeover before.  This little time and effort brought so much joy to the ladies.  What a wonderful gift.  How beautiful they are all both inside and out.  I AM KINDNESS performs these random acts of kindness throughout the city.  This is a great gesture that this group does for these wonderful ladies.  They felt so special and beautiful.

A Note to the Needy

P.B. Jams in  sandwich shop in Warr Acres, Oklahoma owned by Ashley Jiron.  Recently Ashley noticed that someone had been going through the dumpster outside her restaurant.  She said that  it broke it heart that someone felt they had to dig through her trash for a meal. That’s when she decided to help out that stranger. She posted a note on her door inviting the person into the shop for a free meal.  It reads:  ”To the person going through our trash for their next meal.  You’re a human being and worth more than a meal from a dumpster.  Please come in during operating hours for a classic PB&J, fresh veggies, and a cup of water at no charge. No questions asked.” “I think we’ve all been in that position where we needed someone’s help and we just needed someone to extend that hand and if I can be that one person to extend that hand to another human being then I will definitely do it,” Ashley told KFOR.  She says she will not take down the sign until they come in.  She is not sure that they will come in out of pride but she really wants to help them out. Thanks to Sharon A for sharing this story with us.
