I went to a park and lost 4 pendants with my husband’s name, my name and my 2 boys. My family had bought them for me as a 1-year anniversary present and I was devastated. read more →
The most beautiful thing happened today in my presence so I thought I’d tell you all about it.
I had a dear old little lady (would have roughly been in her 80’s) come into the shop looking for a beanie to keep her head warm. We have a few different types and after trying a few on she really liked a pink one which was priced at $15. I told her she looked very pretty in pink and that I liked the look of it on her and she agreed with me once I showed her in the mirror 😛 , but she was unsure as she said she might not be able to afford it. read more →
Every Saturday I bought ice-cream from the truck that came round. Apartment kids started hanging around using my kiddie pool, sprinkler and games, so I started buying for them too. Word got around and I soon had 17 kids hanging around. They named my house the “after school clubhouse”. I bought juice snacks, board games and arts and crafts, and of course Saturday ice-cream. read more →
The most amazing thing just happened to me! Went shopping for some food and groceries for the next few days, used my card to pay and DECLINED. Asked the guy to hold on for a sec while I jumped onto internet banking to see someone had taken a few hundred dollars out of my account today without my knowledge, bummer! read more →
I had to drop my littlest one off at school with loads and loads of canned/boxed goods for the food drive.
Her back pack was pulling her over from the weight, and each hand attempted to carry extremely heavy bags towards the office. There was maybe 100 feet from the car to the office door, but she could barely move. I felt terrible leaving her on her own, but the parking lot is a nightmare and it was nearly impossible for me to park and get out to help her.

I worked with a hard working, family man with 2 kids, and I know money was always tight. His family needed a vehicle that was reliable but didn’t really know how they were going to manage it. Another co-worker, obviously aware of his situation, called him into his office one day and said he’d been praying about what to do with his car since he got a new one. He said my friend’s name just came to his heart, so he handed him the keys. My friend came out of the office, in shock, and he didn’t tell anyone about it because he was asked to keep it quiet, but because we are good friends, he confided in me. He was so moved by this, and it’s something that will stay with ME forever. It restored my faith in humanity. – Anon
