Grab Bag Friday: Good People Doing Good Things

My mother and I had a long conversation the other night about the under-rated importance of two things:
  1. Being thankful
  2. Laughter
It's true. Without those two things, I honestly think my life would be drastically different. I decided I'm going to try to dedicate a couple Grab Bag Friday posts every month to those themes.

So. In the spirit of being thankful for good people in the world (see Monkey Woman from last week if you're more in the spirit of laughter mood...ah, that *still* cracks me up), I thought I'd draw your attention to these two stories that really made me smile this week (and I promise, they're not super sappy...just good stories about good people doing good things):

Bill Childs from Spare the Rock Spoil the Child wrote a post about some teeny tiny mittens and an unexpected act of generosity and kindness from a stranger.

Amy Schimler (one of the illustrators who is contributing artwork to this year's Robert's Snow auction) wrote a very sweet tribute to her friend Vi that shows how a kind word can really make a difference in someone's day.

If you have a good people/good things story, feel free to post a comment & share it with the rest of us!

Have a great weekend!
