It's People That Always Surprise You

In fact to ease me through hunger pangs at noon, I sat outside at a little park/bus stop area and had a piece of bubble gum, ate half with a glass of water. I was okay with that.

Kindness Isn't Just For Humans

My daughter was on her way home when she saw a mother cat and her kitten trying to cross the street. The mother made it across, but kitten didn't.

She looked all over for the mother cat but could not find her. So, she took the little one to her home and now she plans to take care of it.
