Hi everyone,

Here is a lovely story I wanted to share with you all, Brian

Kids are taught in schools not to talk to strangers – but little Norah Woods did the exact opposite and was able to heal a grieving man in need.

Norah and her mom Tara were in the grocery store shopping for cupcakes to celebrate Norah’s fourth birthday when the little girl spotted an elderly old man slowly browsing the aisles. “Her face lit up like the sun, she waved excitedly, and said ‘Hi old person! It’s my birfday today!’,” Tara wrote on Facebook. “He was furrow browed but his expression softened when he realized she was speaking to him.”

According to her mother, the outgoing child is a self-proclaimed senior lover because “I like old peoples the best ‘cos they walk slow like I walk slow and they has soft skin like I has soft skin. They all gonna die soon so I’m gonna love ‘em all up before they is died.” Admittedly a little strange for a kid to say, but she says it was sweet nonetheless.

After chatting to the stranger named Dan for a few minutes, Norah asked if they could take a picture together for her birthday. Though he was a initially surprised at the abnormal request, he happily obliged.

“We thanked ‘Mr. Dan’ for taking time to spend a few minutes of his day with us. He teared up and said ‘No, thank YOU. This has been the best day I’ve had in a long time. You’ve made me so happy, Ms. Norah.’”

Tara posted the photos to Facebook where they were shared thousands of times. Eventually, one user wrote to her saying that Dan’s wife had just passed away a few months ago and he was probably appreciative for the company. Touched by the story, Tara reached out to the widower and asked if her and Norah could come by for a visit. The 4-year-old and the senior ended up spending three hours over a table of crayons and paper. The child now always asks if she can visit Dan every day if only for a few minutes. Whether he likes it or not, he is now a part of the Woods family.

Dan later admitted that he hadn’t been able to sleep properly since his wife died – but after meeting Norah, he has been slumbering uninterrupted every night. He believes that though she may not know it, the little girl healed him with her love.

Hi Folks,

Here is a story Ive just found which I hope you will like, Brian.

Curiosity almost got the best of a cat as it got itself into a difficult situation swimming about a mile out from the shore.

Environmental workers clearing rubbish out at sea off the coast of Istanbul could not believe their eyes when they saw the animal swimming.

The nervous feline kept wriggling free every time that they came close to catching it with a net. Eventually, they decided to change tactics and instead started up a conveyor belt which they use for removing solid waste from the surface of the water.

The crew of the boat said that they had no idea how the cat came to be so far out to sea and said that they had never seen anything like it before.

They later dropped the cat off at a port in the Ayvansaray district of Istanbul where it was said to have appeared to be in remarkably good health following its ordeal.

I read this in my paper on the way to work and it just shows what good parenting can lead to.  No doubt lead by example. Just heartwarming. Well done to her. Jules

Good morning everyone. Each time I sign in to this board there is always great stories of people and events that certainly touch our hearts. We have been effected by our own issues and we are always touched by actions others perform or are involved in. This board has been great in encouraging me and Im sure stories that keep coming up will encourage us even more. Thanks everyone and keep smiling.

Good on him. Reading is to me very important and anything that encourages our young ones to read, has to be applauded, Brian.

Hi folks,

Thanks Hazel, Ian and Jules.

Another thanks to Hazel for the one about the girl and the poppt appeal.

I am pleased folks like this thread. I just feel there are many good things going on in the world but our press dont think them newsworthy. Plus a lot of poeple who do good deeds dont seek publicity and get their rewards just by helping others, Brian.
