Good Deeds.........Good News..

Sep 14th 2012 new

I looked it up and has been a couple of months since we did one of these. I have abbreviated it to "Good Deeds....Good News" since "Good Works" are good deeds as well....so once again...don't be shy!
What have YOU or OTHERS you have observed done which would qualify as "Good Deeds"?..or What have you observed as "Good News" (the world could use more Good News!)
Here goes:
Tonight I was going in a convenience store.....and as I approached the front door a young woman held the door open for me. (she actually held it for awhile as I slowly lumbered my fat self up to the door and said, "Thank you!" "You're most welcome." ....was her reply. So nice there are such good people in this world!
God bless all, and Good Luck!...

I had purchased tickets for the Ice capades at the fair for tomorrow night back in July. I used to love taking Andrew every year. I can still hear his excitement as we planned what to see while at the fair. It was always an all day adventure for us. My first memories of taking him the story was Buzz light year or Toy Story, he would have been around four and yes we had our big bird hand holders so I would not lose him in the crowds. This year my plans were to take my niece with me, and I just found out earlier today that she was backing out on going to see Disney on ice with me, this years theme is Tangled/Disney princesses.

Earlier today I asked Erin if she was taking her three year old daughter Camryn. No was the answer, she just could not afford the tickets. I had been out running errands hen. I found out my niece didn't want to go. So I swung by th office and took my tickets into Erin and handed them to her. What's this? Tickets for tomorrow nights show, second row seats near the ice, take your daughter. Really? Yes really. She started crying, and I must admit I got misty eyed myself.

Yes, I think Andrew would have approved. And someday I will go back and enjoy the show. But for this year it was beginning to feel like too much too soon. I loved every minute at the fair with Andrew, I just wasn't sure I was quite ready to love the fair without him. angel

To men in my neighborhood came to my assistance and carried my dying golden retriever to my car so I could get him to the vet. One of the men I had never even met before.

When my oldest (now 17 and a senior) decided to join track in 7th grade, who knew she had a knack for sprinting...her relay made it to state that year and the next. So to keep in shape, she decided to also join cross country (while still in middle school). Long distance wasn't her race, and she was almost always the last runner of the race. All cheering parents had left the course and moved to the finish line, so often, I was the only one there cheering her on (that's not the good deed part of my story).


So fast forward to today. She is still a sprinter in track, but she's still running cross country to keep in shape. She ran well today, but after her race, I couldn't find her. Then, after most of the cheering parents left the area, I saw her near the finish line (with her younger sister), cheering on the stragglers of the race. She knew what it felt like to be last, and to have only your mom there cheering you on. Good for her. It's one of those times when, as a parent, you get to see the fruit of your labors!
