20+ Stories That Are a Breath of Fresh Air for Anyone Who Is Tired of Bad News


My youngest daughter was born premature and with some health concerns. I had to leave my job to take care of her. It was a rough time. And then, right before Christmas, a local church class decided to help a family. They provided my daughter and I with several things that we needed: diapers (so many diapers!), a bouncer, a Boppy, some toys, and clothes. They brought in books, toys, and clothes, unexpected household goods (a broom, a mop, toilet paper, paper towels, paper plates, cleaning supplies, etc.) and some warm items for me (a hat, a scarf, gloves, and a beautiful mother of pearl watch). Their generosity helped us get back on our feet again. I still get weepy thinking about it. It’s been 12 years. 12 years, and that’s the best memory I have — the best experience I have, of the kindness of strangers. © Emmariana Le Commini / Quora
