Was my Mother’s Best Friend an Angel?

Are there Angels walking among Us ?

When my Mom lost her job, a place she’d been at for 15 years, she decided to move up to New York to be near her Mom. The only thing was, it was hard to find full time work in her field, and she couldn’t afford to buy health insurance. She hadn’t been feeling good for at least a year, and by the time she finally went to a doctor, she was diagnosed with Stage 4 Ovarian Cancer.

Overcoming Fear with Kindness (during Wartime)

My dad during a routine mission with his men

A few years ago my dad came back from serving in Afghanistan.  He was gone a very long time.  When he came back he surprised me while I was at school.  It was just like how you see on the news when the military parents surprise their kids in front of the entire school during a pep rally.

If Dogs Could Talk

(thank you Lloyd – we love this Project)

When I was growing up I seemed to be allergic to everything and I was unable to have a dog. I pleaded with my Mom … if I could only have a dog: a constant companion to play with.  Our neighbors, the Franks, were retired and were very supportive by helping my single Mom. The Franks were always very kind to us giving us presents during Christmas and letting us swim in their pool during Summers.  They would always help my Mom with babysitting or helping me and my brothers with school & house chores.

The Good Neighbors

Kindness is all around but sometimes We don’t notice until it’s gone.

It was Christmas, 1997 and I had just bought my first (and only) home. The day after I moved in there was a knock on the door. I couldn’t imagine who it would be, I wasn’t expecting anyone. It was my next door neighbor, Linda, introducing herself, and bringing me a platter of homemade brownies as a welcome gift. I was amazed! In all the places I’d lived before, I barely knew my neighbor’s names! But there’s more. Read More

Chick-fil-A worker’s simple act of kindness going viral

Image may contain: 1 person, indoor
I think Monday’s are rough for a lot of us but allow me to share an inspiring story.
Today I was picking up lunch for a Doctors Office and as I’m standing there waiting on my order and checking emails, I hear a gentleman ask this lady, “I would like to purchase something to eat but all I have is $5.” So nosy me looks up from my phone and notices this gentleman wearing a backpack and holding a $5 bill who looks to be homeless or maybe he was dealing with a hard time but either way as he asks about a few items on the menu he shortly discovers that he may need more than $5. The lady begins to offer some suggestions to help him and the man orders and as she’s asking him what he wants to drink and as he’s thinking about it the lady says don’t worry about it because your breakfast is on me.

 — at Chick-fil-A County Line Road.

This man went beyond

The simplest Act of Kindness can save someone from having a bad day.

I am extremely claustrophobic, sometimes to the point of a panic attack. The other day I decided to go through one of those automatic car washes because I didn’t have time for the hand wash place I usually go to.

Jessica B.’s story:

A message from ‘beyond’?

When she was in high school, she knew she wanted to be court reporter. To take the court reporting class, you had to have your own equipment – which cost about $500 (in 1970’s money). Her family was not well off and couldn’t afford the machine; they also didn’t have credit cards to pay for it. She went to Jaffe Stationer’s and Mr. Jaffe extended the credit to them for the machine. She was able to go to school, became a court reporter, started her own court reporting company, expanded to multiple offices in Florida and New York, and has been a huge success. None of it would have happened without the kindness shown them and the trust placed in them with the extension of credit.
