A Kind Act

Submitted by Kate from Lincoln, Nebraska

The day we buried my grandfather was a rough one. Family issues had come to a head, making an already sorrowful time even more sad. On the way to the funeral sitting next to my grandmother in the funeral limousine, when her voice would waiver I'd grab her hand to let her know she wasn't alone and was surrounded by loved ones still. As we drove on, emotions were high yet calm. We passed by a young man, not...

Kind Governor

Submitted by anonymous from Utah

Many years ago I worked for a Governor in my state. With his position he could have made a big deal of this to promote himself but he never would and it is amazing. Quite often on Sundays he would ask his security to set up a hospital visit. He would tell them which one and made sure they called a head nurse and that the hospital staff was not to tell anyone and not to make a big...

Books, Books, And More Books

Submitted by Jaimi from Canada

I frequent my neighbourhood bookstore 2 to 3 times per month. Every time I check out, I always add a $20 gift card to my purchase. Then, I wander the store and place the gift card in a random book with the message "to you, from me. Enjoy!" I love the notion of someone picking up a book and discovering it. Sometimes I will ask the staff to recommend a book that is selling well (to try to ensure...

Stranded Motorist

Submitted by H Wilson from Virginia

After a long day of work I headed up to my home which followed a few winter storms. Roads were mostly passable, but I came upon a motorist who had slipped off to the side of the road on a mountainside and was stuck in a snow bank. After a brief conversation I was able to calm her down and tried to dig her out. Attempts to drive her out with salt and stone were fruitless. She then informed...

Wiggle It...Just A Little Bit!

Submitted by Tracy from Melbourne, Australia

here in Australia there is a children's group called "The Wiggles" a group that sings and dances for small kids. I work for a company that is a major sponsor of this group, (well the car they "drive" on their shows!) and through my company we were able to get free tickets to one of their shows. We could request up to 10 tickets for shows in either Melbourne or Sydney. I asked for 6 for Melbourne and 4...

Submitted by Sophie from Aliso Viejo, CA

On Sunday, February 22, 2015, a gentleman paid for my groceries at Stater Brothers in Aliso Viejo, CA. I was so taken aback that I thought of so many things to say later. His name was Robert and very sweet and handsome. I wish I could thank him again properly! It made my day and I made sure to pay it forward by donating to a friend's Avon walkathon for breast cancer the same day. Thank you again, wherever...
