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.

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

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.

A Kind Heart Helping Others

Laraine Dawn Young was on vacation last month in Makati with her boyfriend Chris, when she experienced a wordless act of kindness by him that so melted her heart, she had to grab her phone to record the scene as it was unfolding.He stopped what he was doing and did something helping others. She called the video, “An Act of Compassion: The Man I Love Has The Most Beautiful Soul.” She tells her story: “Chris and I were walking out of our hotel in Makati when I saw some children sleeping on the sidewalk. I felt so bad for these kids – I told my boyfriend about them kids and he saw them just laying there looking tired and sickly. Unquestionably, he felt bad for them as well. He told me to watch our things because he wanted to go to the nearest convenience store – I thought maybe he was just thirsty or hungry so OK. After a few minutes, he came out with a bag of groceries and told me he’s going to give it to the kids. *I melted*

As he was crossing the street, I decided to take a video so I can keep reminding myself that I’ve been blessed with a man who is not only smart, sexy and handsome but one who is also beautiful inside and out. He didn’t know I was recording this video until he got back :)

I wanted to keep this video to myself, but I am proud of my man. I wanna share his kind deed to the world even if he deserves more recognition than this. How something so simple can mean so much to not only the ones you serve but the ones who witness you serving.  Take the time to look around and see if there is something you can do to help others.

What are your memories?

This is another one of those thought provoking commercials that we need to see.  Nature Valley used this time to ask 3 generations what memories they have of their childhood.  It is amazing to see the difference in each generation.  Nature has always been a part of growing up   If we do not take the time to show these young people they will miss the beauty of nature.  Whether nature is just going for a walk or growing something in the garden.  You must share and teach the next generation before it is forgotten. This is just a good reminder of what we all took for granted in our childhood.  Share with the young people in your lives.  Don’t be afraid to challenge them to do some of the things you did growing up.  They will appreciate it and will love you more for sharing it.  What are your memories?  Have you taught a young person something you learned when you were young.  Memories made together last longer.

10 year old saves kids from fire

When a mobile home caught fire, 10 year old Isaiah Francis didn’t think about himself.  He only thought about the other children that were in harm’s way in the trailer. The children’s dad was trying to put water on the fire and the emergency responders had not arrived yet.  He was able to pull out a 1 and 2 year old.  Minutes later the Orange County Florida fire fighters were on the scene.  They went in while the mobile home was 75% engulfed at that time.  They were able to save two more children. What a brave young man!  It takes more than courage to rush into a fire like that, it takes some help from a few guardian angels.  How amazing that he was there at the right time and place. He is such an amazing young man.  You are our hero Isaiah. Do not put yourself in harm’s way but do answer when called upon.  Amazing people do amazing things.  Even young ones.

Happy Father’s Day Dad

This Sunday is Father’s Day.  I feel the same about Father’s Day as I do Mother’s Day.  Everyday should be Father’s Day and Mother’s Day.  We shouldn’t wait until one day in the year to tell our parents how much they mean to us.  This sweet video shows some of the great things that Dad does for us.  It shows the diffferent characteristics of a great Dad.  Many memories we have of the special things that all the Dads do for their families.  Thank you to all those Dads out there who always care for their families.  AND for all those men out there who may not be a biological father but are always there as father figure to those who need one.  Happy Father’s Day to all you “Dads” out there.  You are so special in the lives of the children, more than you know.

How Important You Are- A Mom’s Story

Moms are very busy.  Sometimes they forget just how much they do for everyone. This mom is a businesswoman and a full time mom. In this video she learns just what she means to the family.  This was a commercial but yet a great story that every mom could put herself in.  Kraft Peanut Butter approached this family to use as an example for almost every family.  The kids made drawings and an author helped them write a book.  Kraft asked Deborah to be there for a book reading.  She was reading the book to an audience.  All of a sudden she turns a page and sees that the story is about her.  I dare you not to find yourself this in this story in one way or another.  Thank you Kraft for reminding us that we all have a place in the story and what we do in life tells the story we want to tell.  Be present in your story no matter how hard or how wonderful.  A new chapter is ready to be written and what you do today will form that chapter.  Take the time to enjoy the story and share that story with everyone.

How important you are- a mom's story

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.

Youth Program dazzles Rocker

Here is a youth program in Louisville, Kentucky called the Louisville Leopard Percussionists.  The Louisville Leopard Percussionists began in 1993. They are a performing ensemble of approximately 55 student musicians, ages 7-12, living in and around Louisville, Kentucky. Each student learns and acquires proficiency on several instruments, such as marimbas, xylophone, vibraphone, drum set, timbales, congas, bongos and piano.  This performance of Led Zeppelin medley of “Immigrant Song”, “The Ocean” and “Kashmir” in fluid sequence.  Jimmy Page (of Led Zepplin) himself was blown away and placed a post on Facebook, “Too good not to share”.  What a wonderful program for these young people. Their talent is amazing.  I love watching talented young people who are given the opportunity to grow and learn.   This is the type of program that helps keep young people on the straight and narrow.  I am so amazed at their talent.  Isn’t it wonderful that a community would offer this type of program for their young people.  Way to Go Louisville. Share this great talent with all your friends.

Crossing Guard Gets New Ride

10 years ago Nathaniel Kendrick (Mr. Kent) retired  form the city of Dallas and became the local school crossing guard.  He is a favorite of the community. He is taking care of his ill wife and times are tough.  The families of the school love “Mr. Kent”.  They think the world of him.  Recently with all the bills adding up Mr. Kent had his car repossessed.  Some families from the school where he works found out about it and decided to do something.  Several Dads got together and bought him a new car.  They drove it up and parked it in the crosswalk knowing he would say something about the car being in the way.  He asked them to move the car and they told him that he could move it since it was his car.  He was quite overcome and couldn’t believe that they would do such a thing. There is true love between this man, the kids at the school and the families of the community.  What a great community to live in where you care so much for each other.  Thank you to Mr. Kent for being such a wonderful friend to the children he cares for and thank you to the community for showing him just how important he is.
