    On Sunday, I had to run a few errands so I dashed through the bank's drive up ATM & grabbed some cash.
    I wanted to buy a paper from Dollar Tree & see if dog food was on sale at Target (same strip mall).
    As I pulled into the parking lot, I saw 7 young adults taking pictures in the Lot by some trees. The young men were all wearing suits, with one of them was taking the pics & one of the girls was wearing a white dress.
    I went to them & asked them if it was a special occasion. They looked at me with expressions that said "what is wrong with this woman?", or "Why is this lady approaching us?", but they all looked wary. The photographer told me that they just got married. I handed the bride & groom $50, and they were all shocked.
    Everyone started smiling & thanking me. I figured my husband & I could waste that on a dinner out, why not help out a newly married couple.

    Nice of you to do that, even though they thought you were crazy. lol

    Hopefully they'll pay it forward one day.

    We went out to dinner last week - casual, but the opportunity to dress up a little (I put on earrings and a necklace, lol). We hadn't been to that place in a while, and we had a great waitress and a wonderful time. She admired my silver earrings because they moved so nicely and looked light - so I took them off and gave them to her. Everyone should have the pleasure of owning a nice handcrafted pair of silver earrings She was delighted and couldn't believe I meant it, but when I assured her that I did, she went to the back to put them on.
    Be Happy Now.

    Twins attach letters to Santa to balloons – and stranger 650 miles away finds them and brings them gifts

    These 4-year-old twins released balloons with letters to Santa. Then a stranger found one – nearly 650 miles away – and fulfilled every wish on their Christmas list
