Today, a teenager knocked on our front door and returned my 74-year-old mother in-law’s wallet completely intact that she had lost at the mall, including the $380 in cash she had in it. My mother in-law was so appreciative, she gave the teenager $200 as a reward. Later this evening our doorbell rang and it was a flower delivery service with a dozen roses for my mother in-law. The card read, “On your ID I noticed it was your birthday yesterday. Happy belated birthday!” MMT

Today, I handed a new employee an annual bonus check the accounting department accidentally cut him even though he’s only been with the company for a month. The CEO of our small company was gracious and told him to keep it. The employee was confused, but extremely grateful. I asked him what he planned to do with it and he said, “Maybe I’ll buy a homeless man a dinner or something.” Seven hours later I walked out of the office just time to witness him handing out three bags of subway sandwiches to the three homeless men who always sit under the overhang on the side of our office building.

Today, I had a horrendous day at work, and then on the drive home I was rear-ended in the pouring rain. When I finally got home I told my husband and kids that I just needed to lie down. So I went into the bedroom and passed out by myself. When I woke up two hours later, my 5-year-old daughter was wedged in behind me, my 3-year-old son was snuggled up in front of me, and our 4-month-old kitten was sprawled out across my stomach. And all of them were fast asleep. Waking up to this made me realize that even on bad days I have a lot to be grateful for. MMT

Today when I read the news about the healthcare debate, I thought of my dad, who died of colon cancer at 86. When the doctor told him he could have 6 to 8 more weeks with chemo and radiation, my dad was horrified. "Spend Medicare money on me when there are kids without health insurance? I'm 86!" MMT

Today, I was behind a bigger guy and his wife in line for a rollercoaster. They seemed to have come with a big group of people, but I could tell he was nervous. When he fit it into the cart tears rolled down his cheeks and the entire group started cheering. It turns out he just lost 100 pounds and hasn't been able to ride a rollercoaster for 12 years. Every person around him were his friends and were there to support him. MMT

Today my family and I got a package. It contained my older brother's girlfriend's senior pictures, several letters and songs she'd written, two of her favorite shirts, her favorite teddy bear, and some old photos of her growing up. We got this package less than two weeks after she killed herself because, according to her, my brother cheated on her before he left to start basic training. MMT
