Default The GOOD NEWS Thread

Sometimes, I wonder why I watch the news.....in our sensationalized world, it's a bit overwhelming at times.....

So I thought it might be refreshing to share GOOD NEWS.....these are the stories that warm our hearts....good people doing good deeds....'paying-it-forward' stories....heroes....

ENJOY!

Remember that convenience store owner ~ was it in NY? ~ who stood up to the robber? And when he did, the robber went down to her knees.....and the shop owner gave him a loaf of bread and $40.

WELL.

The robber just wrote the store owner....it seems he got his act together....his wife just had a baby, he got a job and sent the store owner a fifty dollar bill, and thanked him for helping him.

I love that story!

What an awesome idea for a thread, Diva! I haven't heard any good news today, but I'll let you know when I do.

In other news, it snowed at Wal-Mart tonight. ONLY Wal-Mart.





If you put a little boogey into it, it doesn't seem so cold.

Wal-Mart is the home of Satan and his minions, but it's cheap, and this girl is on a budget.

I imagine the relationship of Wal-Mart to its customers like this ---->

My good news for today? I don't have to get up before the sun for ONE MONTH, starting tomorrow!!!! Woot! I can sleep in and stay up late (night owl here) and get started on my holiday without falling asleep with the pen in my hand.

Oh, and it snowed, but only a little bit and only at Wal-Mart.

I go to this website when I need a "good" news story

http://www.darynkagan.com/index.html

I love the one on the homepage now about the disabled boy and the surfing dog

My fav section is the animal stories

Have You heard about Nonja (pronounced: NOHN~ya), the orangutan in the Vienna Zoo, who was given a camera and has been taking some neat pictures of herself and her buddies? She has learned that, when she twists the knob, a raisin pops out.....she gets the raisins....but we get these neat pictures!
