If we all sit and take a moment to think, there are so many things to be thankful for in this life. Each day is a new opportunity to set out with the right intentions and make a difference. Here are a few feel-good stories from the week to help you get your mind right.
No matter how many times you move in your life, you always remember your favorite pizza spot from your hometown. When they were younger and money was tight, a young couple who had lived in Battle Creek, MI 25 years ago would pick up Steve’s Pizza for dinner. Several years and moves later, they’ve yet to find a better pizza. Recently, the couple was planning a trip to come back home when the husband, Rich, ended up in the ICU for five days and realized his battle with Cancer was coming to an end. While home and under hospice care, he was asked if he could have one thing to eat, what would it be? Of course, the response was Steve’s Pizza. After hearing about this, Steve’s pizza decided to make its first and only delivery stop to Rich who lived three hours away. The smallest things truly make the biggest difference.
Cole is a young boy from Connecticut who loves the Boston Red Sox. He recently had to have surgery to remove a tumor from his leg but before he went into the 17-hour surgery, he received a care package from the Red Sox which included Sox merch, real Fenway dirt and more. The most special thing he received, however, was a photo of his favorite player, Dustin Pedroia, wearing a “Cole Strong” bracelet. The surgery was a success and Cole woke up just in time to see the Sox beat the Astros and head to the world series. Stay strong Cole and go Red Sox!

This Wednesday President Trump awarded the Medal of Honor to retired Marine Sgt. Maj. John Canley. Canley, who used his brother’s paperwork to enlist in the Marines at the age of 15, fought bravely in the Vietnam war. He often charged into heavy enemy machine gun fire and personally saved the lives of more than 20 Marines. Thank you for your service, Marine Sgt. Maj. John Canley.
We hope you all have a beautiful weekend. No matter how big or small, each act of kindness and valor will always make a difference.
