Much love to Lisa and her family in their time of tragedy and healing. And much love to whoever gave them this miracle. Thank you for making love a little bit louder this week.

<3 this! I'd just been on another site where I saw some of the worst in people and how they mistreat animals. This reminds me that there are also amazing, wonderful, beautiful people in the world. Thank you!

Oh my goodness... what a WONDERFUL, heartwarming story for a family who has lost so much recently.  My thoughts and prayers go out to Lisa's family as they struggle through this.   And a heartfelt thank you to the anonymous wreath-giver.  Absolutely amazing!

Thanks for sharing this Dan.  I needed a positive story today.  There's a "like" button on Facebook.   I wish there was a "LOVE" button on here.  Love, love, love this!!!  Such amazing people in the world.  Praying for Lisa and her family, and praying for the anonymous donor(s).  They are such a blessing.

Thank you for sharing this! Not only does it remind us that there are amazing people in this world, so full of love, but it reminds us that any little thing we can do to help someone in need or to brighten someone's day probably has more of an impact than we can imagine!

Thank you for sharing this, having recently lost my husband, the only good thing to come of it has been realising that people are good and my son and I are so incredibly lucky to be surrounded by the most incredible people. Theyh ave helped us breathe, are helping us recover and reminding us that the world is not always filled with hate and anger.

Thank you for making me cry (good tears) these "pay it forward" moments always inspire me to try to be nicer than I know I've been, thanks!

this really brought tears to my eyes.  just when you think the world sucks, along comes an angel masquerading as a person, reminding us that human kindness exists.

this happened to me years ago.  i was in a very bad place, going through a bitter divorce, becoming a single parent of a young child.  after dropping my daughter off at daycare, i tried in vain to merge into traffic.  NO ONE let me in...for about 10 minutes.  then out of nowhere a homeless man (not kidding), walked into traffic, stopped traffic and motioned me to enter.  i started crying immediately and have never forgotten this act of kindness.  when i needed a simple gesture of kindness most, a stranger offered it to me.  i try to pay it forward every day.

There could be no harder tragedy to overcome than the loss of a child, both emotionally and spiritually. Just when you think there is no more light in the world, along comes a spark so bright, it re-ignites your flame and helps you to carry on. We all have crosses to bear and blessedly, we all have angels helping us to carry those crosses, thankfully, Lisa and her family's angel helped bring a little light to an otherwise dark time in their lives.
