Are acts kindness important? I read a heartwarming article that answers this question.

A chance encounter on an airplane from Florida made an impact on the lives of a Canadian mom and a New Jersey executive.

The story of Shanell Mouland and Eric Kunkel began when Mouland boarded an airplane with her three-year old daughter, Kate. (more…)

I read an inspirational article about a woman who got her high school diploma at the age of 98! Ida Ruth Hayes Greene always regretted not having graduated from high school. She felt that something was missing in her life and decided to remedy that. She was not about to let her age get in the way! (more…)
