    Smile Have you got a nice story?

    Have you got a nice story? Perhaps you have a tale of adversity overcome or something uplifting to share. Perhaps you received exceptional care or service and you would like to share? Maybe the neighbor that you never took the time to meet put your package undercover when the rain came in early.
    It seems that all too frequently that the internet becomes a place to vent....How about some good news for a change?

    They grew up together, fought off an attacker together and accepted a nation's honor together.

    The "what if" they didn't step in is chilling for sure.

    Definitely a feel good story and some genuine heroes

    Does this count ?

    My arthritis has been really bad lately. The other day I put out my garbage can for collection . Late that afternoon I heard my neighbor bringing her can in. Oops I need to get mine, I said to myself. About that time I heard a second can being rolled ?? I look out & it is her [neighbor] rolling my can back to where I keep it. I opened the door & thank her, she says.....I saw you put it out this morning , and it looked like every step hurt ! so I thought I'd lend a hand ...

    I hope she knows how much I appreciated it ? My appreciation goes way beyond a thank you

    During this season of thanksgiving take the time, learn to be.. or relearn to be thankful. Let people know sincerely that you appreciate what they did for you. Even if you paid them to do it for you. Monetary compensation only goes so far. Don't make the mistake of enslaving your waitress, your airline attendant, your taki cab driver, your BMW service tech simply because you paid for the service. Always thank the people in your life that work for you, and those who help just because they love you.

    I want to take the time on the forums to thank all the regulars here. Our discourse here blesses me. I also want to take the time to thank the leadership, staff, and volunteers, to include the leadership and the staff from the past. We have a great organization, that sort of thing doesn't happen by accident. A warm and sincere thankyou.
