A Car Seat for a Young Father In Need, And Then Some

My husband and I were out shopping and noticed an older truck that was being driven by a young man. This man had a child in the cab without a car seat. The child was no older than three. My husband started chatting with the man and he told us that his wife had just left him and had sold everything he had, including the child's car seat as well as his furniture. I asked him if he would come into the store with us and we grabbed a cart, put his child in the cart, and off we went. We purchased a car seat, a toddler bed, mattress, sheets that the child picked as well as a comforter. We also got a few throw pillows, a regular pillow, PJs, a couple of outfits, and toys. The young man was almost in tears. I told him that it was our pleasure. I ... Read Full Story >>

Lending An Old Friend A Spare Apartment

I just received a phone call from an old friend that I have not heard from in years. She looked me up to let me know that an old friend of ours was about to be evicted.

She is trying to do what she can to help her out. She figured that since we all were so close for so long, she would reach out and see if we could help. I moved away from the area years ago.

Luckily, I have family in the area. I have an uncle that owns an apartment building. I was unable to help with the eviction but I called my uncle and he is going to give her an apartment to live in for a year rent free. It is a three bedroom place.

She is a single mom with three children. My cousins are renting a truck and are going to help her move the next two days so she isn't served the eviction papers and she will get all of her stuff out of the place so it isn't lost. Being able to help with a hand up is the best feeling in the world.

Lost Ring Comes Full Circle

I feel that I was blessed by an Angel not long ago. I was out in town with my husband. We live in a small town. Because of the cold, my finger shrunk, causing my anniversary ring to fall off. I didn't notice this until we got home. I became physically ill. I thought my husband was going to have a heart attack. Yes, it is a material item but it is also a very sentimental item. He went out and retraced our steps. I called the stores we were in and no one turned it in. I thought it was gone for sure. Well, at around midnight last night, our dogs went nuts. We have a sunroom that attaches to our home. The door to that is usually locked. Apparently, we left it unlocked. My all-terrain mobility scooter is parked out there. In its basket was a ring box...holding my ring! Along ... Read Full Story >>
