Wedding on a plane

What’s more romantic than a wedding? A surprise wedding at 30.000 feet, completely planned out by your future husband. Thomas Cook Facebook fan Alexander asked his clueless girlfriend to marry him on a plane. Did she say yes?  This video happened last year but it is so cute and is such a wonderful feel good story I had to share it when I found it.  It seems there was an airline company that offered a free wedding for a couple and their friends aboard their plane. The one catch was he had to ask her to marry him and arrange for the wedding on that flight with her family there.  Alexander said yes and the planning began.  Alexander worked very hard to make everything special for his bride to be and make sure that it would be a day she would never forget.  Can you imagine?  Not many of us could do this and get the result that he did.  What a compassionate man and an understanding a loving woman to accept all he had done and go forward with it happily.  Planning something special for others is wonderful but accepting what someone would do for you is also just as important.

A Random Act for A Pizza Delivery Person

What is more special, giving someone something they expect or to give the unexpected.  Many workers live mostly on their tips.  Servers and delivery drivers are a few that really count on their tips to suppliment their income.  This video shows a group of people (this group just happens to be a church group) that decided they wanted to share their good fortunes by doing a good deed for an unexpecting person.  So… they ordered a pizza.  Just one pizza.  They had been learning about being generous. So they decided to show their generosity they took up a special offering.  Her tip was $9 but they have a gift for her of $1046.00 to just help her with her life.  Nothing expected, nothing required. Just a gift.  Thank you Sycamore Creek Church in Pickerington Ohio, for wrapped up a monthly missions emphasis on “Random Acts of Kindness,” by surprising an unsuspecting pizza delivery driver. What a wonderful unexpected gift to a stranger.  What could you do to surprise a stranger with a random act of kindness?  It doesn’t have to be something as big as this example but it could be something as simple as a smile.  Think about it.  You can make a difference.

Washing Clothes for the Homeless

Austrailia’s first mobile laundry is helping the homeless.  Founded in October 2014, the world first free mobile laundry has since completed over 45 000 kgs of free laundry for Australia’s homeless. With the key aim of connecting the community, by restoring respect, raising health standards and reducing the strain on resources, they work together as a community and have found a way to treat others the way they want to be treated. Then when the cyclone hit they also took their idea and helped out communities that could not wash due to the issues caused by this horific storm.  They said their goals are to restore respect, raise health standards and reduce the stress on resources.  The people who have used the services cannot believe what it does for them and the people around them.  They are soon launching their 4th service area. Thanks for all your help and support to your community and the people you serve.  Your idea is amazing and I hope it spreads to more and more areas.  Learn more and donate today at www.orangeskylaundry.com.au

So God Made A Dog

Those of you who have dogs will really understand and love this video.  Those of you who don’t have a dog may be able to understand the crazyness of people who love them.  These animals come into our lives usually as a cute puppy as a gift for a child.  Sometimes they are adopted older and just join the family.  You can’t figure out why you added them to your family and then before you know it you can’t figure out how you go on without them in your family.  This is just a beautiful poem with pictures that really portay the fellings you get when you have a dog in the family.  This tells us the things we already know  and somethings we don’t.  It reminds us of the loyalty of those friends we call dogs.  Take a moment and just enjoy this short video poem.  Share this those who love dogs, those who don’t and especially those who need to understand dogs.  It is one of the best descriptions I have ever seen for these furry members of our family members.  There is no better companion, friend, family and partner than a faithful dog.  Those that have never had one cannot understand the connection between a dog and his family.  Enjoy and Share

Her Dads Walked her Down the Aisle

For most of her life, Brittany Peck has had two men vying for her love and attention: her father and stepfather.  As happens in many families Brittany’s mom and dad separated and divorsed while she was just a little girl.  Her mother remarried and Brittany came to live with her mom.  Her dad was a truck driver and on the road a lot.  He learned to love her step dad.  As she grew older the two men never liked each other and you could even say barely tolerated each other.  Now Brittany is getting married and she feels torn on her special day.  As her dad was walking her down the aisle he stopped to give her the best wedding present she could ever receive.  He went back to her step dad to get him and said he need to be there to walk “their ” daughter down the aisle.  Her step dad could not believe it.  It touched him so much to be a part of this special day.  They both walked her down the aisle and as they left her you could see the two “DADS” walking arm in arm away.  They both agreed that each played a special part in her life.  Way to go Dads. You two made the right choice and showed everyone how to handle this situation.

Giving Her Coat Off Her Back

This story happened some time ago but it still is a wonderful story to hear.  Sometimes things can go terribly wrong and still turn out amazing. That’s what happened when two strangers connected on a bitterly cold night in downtown Richmond. Felicia Glover reached out to help Kinley Crenshaw, who had no coat, no money and no way to get home. Their story sparked a Facebook frenzy, cemented a friendship, and inspired today’s Acts of Kindness.  Kinley was out with some friends at a concert.  As girls do she gave all her personal belongings to her friend to hold in her purse.  As they left the two got separated leaving Kinley without any identification, money or even a coat.  She made her way to a bus stop.  That is when she met Felicia.  Felicia gave her the coat off her back and made sure she got on the bus to get home.  After she got home she notified the local tv station to get the word out and find her gardian angel.  The station offered her $300 to give to her new friend thanking her for her kindness.  Way to go Felicia. You are an amazing woman.  AND great job Kinley for putting forth the effort to find her to return her coat and thank her.

Teen finds wallet and returns it.

Here is a short video with a great story.  A young man found a wallet that contained $2300.  His family was struggling with expenses but he never considered keeping the money. He turned it in right away to his school officials.  The wallet was claimed by a veteran who had lost his wallet.  The boys family was so proud of him for being doing the right thing.  When his mother sent him a text telling her how proud she was of him his reply was “You should be thanking yourself, you raised me”.  See when (as a parent) you are never really sure if they hear you and understand your lessons then you see something like this and realize, they are getting it.  Great job Mom and Dad for teaching this young man right from wrong and how to do the right thing.  AND thank you Tommy for thinking of others and doing the right thing.  Also, thanks to the vet who did reward Tommy.  BTW – I am sorry, but this video does not stop at the end of this story but continues on with a weather report from a local station. We could not edit this so just accept my apologies for this at the end of this great story.

She Couldn’t Wait a Moment Longer

You can’t always wait.  This little girl was there with her family and many other families as they waited for their soldiers to return home.  As they came into the room she waited until she couldn’t wait any longer.  She ran to her daddy before he was dismissed.  Nothing could stop her and nothing could keep him from greeting this little girl. She returned back to her mom and waiting with everyone else until her dad was officially dismissed to run to her.  How sweet. We just don’t realize how much the families of our military suffer and give up for our freedom.  First Lt Daniel Oglsby was deployed to Kawait eight months ago. Not only that but Thursday was little Kara’s birthday.  What could be a better gift than having your daddy come home?  Christine, his wife, said that last time he came from home from deployment was the first time he met his little girl Kara when she was 2 months old.  This mom spent many nights reading to her little girls about deployment in a child’s book called “Lily Hates Goodbyes” where the little girl runs to her dad when he returns.  She clearly took a lesson from this book.  Welcome Home Lt. Oglesby and enjoy your time with your daughters. Thank you for your service.

Woman wakes from coma to baby’s cry

A mother Shelly Cawley who slipped into coma after the birth of her child had miraculously woken up after the she heard her baby’s cries. The family of the woman thought they were going to say their last goodbye to the woman as they were escorted through the hallways of North Carolina Hospital. Her blood pressure was dangerously low (60/40, doctors later told the family) and her heart rate was soaring (more than 180 beats per minute). Cawley was hooked up to what doctors called “the last-chance ventilator,” a machine pumping air into her lungs with such force that it rattled her hospital bed with each artificial breath, her husband, Jeremy Cawley, said. They were willing to try anything to give this mom a reason to live.  So they stripped the baby down and put her skin to skin on her mother’s chest.  They wanted her to feel, smell and hear the baby giving her a reason to fight. And they thought Rylan Grace Cawley — just hours old — might be the only one who could help. They had to tickle and pinch the baby a bit to get her to cry so her mother could hear her. When the baby did, her mother’s vitals jumped . e said he was told it may have given her the strength she needed to push through. A week later, Shelly Cawley woke up and met her baby daughter. Even though in a coma the mother still knew her little girl was there and that she needed her.  What a heart warming story.

Team Helps Save Boy

Here is a story that just reminds us that there are some wonderful kids out there in the world today. A middle school student was by himself over by  Fenton High School football field.  He was approached by a middle aged man the boy ran away towards the football field.  When the football team saw what was happening they got between the man and the young boy.  The man was gesturing to the boy to come to him.  The boy told the team, “Do let him take me”.  They not only got him away from the man but even took a picture of his license plate and a description of his vehicle.  The team came together as a team to help rescue the boy.  They feel like they learned what to do by seeing this scenerio from movies and tv.  The police said they could not arrest the man since he did not actually do anything wrong but they will keep an eye on him and thankfully that little boy is safe because of this team and how they jumped to his rescue.  Way to go boys.  Watching your surroundings always is the best.  Great job.
