Unexpected Generosity at a Service Plaza

Just this past weekend I drove from Indiana to Wisconsin to visit a friend who just relocated there for work. About an hour into the drive I had to get gas, and refuel myself with a dose of caffeine! I stopped at one of the highway service plazas – even though the gas is a little more expensive, I feel safer than exiting the highway in an unfamiliar neighborhood.

My Father helped Brothers-to-the-Rescue

1/1/1994, Charlie Trainor/Miami Herald Staff: Cuban rafters

During the 1990’s, there were the most amount of rafters trying to escape Cuba’s brutal regime during the cruelest ruling years of Fidel Castro.  After a young boy was found dead floating on a raft apparently trying to escape, the dangerous plight of the Cuban people became widely publicized.

The Angel in the middle of nowhere

An Angel in the Dessert

It can happen to anyone but it didn’t, it happened to me while I was with my young kids.  It was Daddy’s day with my two sons; the time I cherish most.  We went off camping and hiking for the weekend. It was a great time.  But heading back, I was running late and we took a short cut and the truck got stuck.

Someone saved my Puppy from ‘Jaws’

I was walking my new puppy, a baby golden retriever, around my neighborhood.  All of a sudden a huge dog comes from out of nowhere and grabs my Sammy.  I screamed to the tops of my lungs.  The neighbor across the street was watering their lawn and saw the entire incident.  He immediately dropped his hose and ran after this big huge dog.  He had no fear in grabbing at this very aggressive animal while it snapped at his hands and grabbed my puppy again with his teeth.  It was a very scary moment but my neighbor, who was really a stranger and someone I never really spoke with, saved my puppy by risking getting attacked himself.

My Sister Saved My Life

Last year I was traveling to visit my family during the holidays.  On the way to my parent’s home, I was in a very bad auto accident.  The damage was bad to both to me and the car.  My face hit the window.  There was blood and glass everywhere.  I lost a lot of blood – and that was the problem.
