Happy Sunday, dear friends. I hope you are all enjoying a relaxing weekend. My cat, Slinky, has been meowing at me to come and play with her, but I told her it is time for me to share some Feel Good News with you all.
She then decided to come sit on my lap and see what wonderful, uplifting stories we had in store, so if I can’t type very well, it is because I have a feline with paws on the keyboard!
Today, as with every Sunday, we share news to lift the heart and remind us all of the good things happening in our world. The more we dig for good news, miraculously, the more we uncover.
105 year old woman crosses polar bears off her bucket list!
Pauline Page lives in Saskatchewan, Canada, and she just turned 105. Pauline has never seen a polar bear, even in a zoo, so she decided to travel to Manitoba with her daughters to see some in the wild.
Within minutes of trekking into the wild on a tundra buggy, she was thrilled to see a mother bear with two cubs. She said this had been one of her dearest wishes.
Police do the grocery shopping for an elderly purse snatching victim.
Julia Brecht was shopping for groceries at the Aurora, Colorado-area Target, when a man stole her purse right out of her shopping cart. The purse contained her money, credit cards, keys to her home and car.
When local police arrived, they calmed Mrs. Brecht down to get the full story. The two officers then grabbed her grocery list, shopped for her, and paid the bill with their own money. They then took her home and installed a new front door lock.
Mrs. Brecht believes they went above the call of duty for her. She is most thankful for the kindness and generosity of these two Good Samaritans, even if they were only doing their job.
Santa Claus can’t have breakfast alone.
Gracie Wilson went out to breakfast with her family the other day in Evansville, Indiana. When she got there, she received quite a shock.
There was Santa Claus eating breakfast all by himself. The 3-year-old told her grandmother that Santa should not have to eat breakfast alone, and so Santa, who was on his way to a local mall to visit other children, agreed to have her sit with him.
She spoke all about her new baby brother, the weather at the North Pole and the movie Frozen. What a kind-hearted little girl and a sweet Santa!
A neonatal nurse uses her imagination when caring for her premature charges.
Jessica Wright is a nurse and educator in Atlanta, and she works daily with the smallest, and most fragile of hospital patients.
In this beautiful article, she shares her dreams for “her babies”, as well as artwork she has created around their possible bright futures.
Elderly woman’s last wish is to say goodbye to her horses.
Sheila Marsh, 77, was a cancer patient at the Royal Albert Edward Infirmary in the UK. She passed away on Tuesday, but not before hospital staff and friends were able to grant her final wish. She used to work at a local racetrack, and kept many pets including two horses, and she wanted to say goodbye to them.
The horses were transported to the parking lot, behind the hospital, and nurses wheeled Mrs. Marsh out to greet them. They nuzzled and loved on her as she lay on the gurney. Staff members said it was a very moving experience for them, and they were so happy to be able to grant her final wish.
Wonderful welcome home song-fest at Heathrow Airport.
This lovely link was sent in by a dear reader. The cellular phone carrier, T-mobile, created a number of beautiful “flashmob” song videos, beginning in 2010, that bring joyful tears to my eyes. This one is from an event at London’s Heathrow Airport and not a single instrument was used. The reactions of the crowd are wonderful.
That’s the good news for today. Have a happy day. I hope to see you back here tomorrow for more news.
Be Well. Be Joy. Be Love!
