‘I wouldn’t let my husband touch them. I wanted pretty boobies, whatever that meant. I was ‘large’ and gravity became my enemy.’: Woman urges ‘do what you need to in this life’ after breast augmentation

“I’ve always hated my breasts, ever since high school. I couldn’t wear the cute sundresses like my girlfriends. I couldn’t wear sexy lingerie or bikinis…they just sagged. Yeah, I said it…sagged. I made a decision back in November that I wanted to get a boob job. I wanted ‘pretty’ boobies, whatever that meant.”

‘His lips formed the words, ‘No matter what, I want to marry you.’ This was happening. I didn’t want to wait for my forever with Alex.’: Couple ‘start their forever’ with social distance wedding

“We had plans of something great and big to be shared with everyone we loved. I never thought about what would happen to my wedding if a global pandemic struck. Honestly, nobody did. ‘What are you going to do?!’ His grandfather swung open the doors. The flow of love as our would-be guests blared car horns and waved signs broke me into tears immediately.”

‘I went to the hospital in labor. All the doors were locked. Our baby decided to come early. We escaped with a ‘normal’ birth experience by the skin of our teeth.’: Mom grateful son’s birth timing was ‘untainted by the coronavirus’

“I held my breath on the way out. Within 24 hours of our arrival home, the L&D ward where we had our sweet boy changed all their restrictions. Had he come one day later, my 4-year-old daughter wouldn’t have met her baby brother at the hospital. All those special moments would have been put on hold, lost forever. We hit the curve of timing by the skin of our teeth.”

‘I put down my window. She handed me a bag and said, ‘We want to thank you for what you’re doing. You and all truckers working hard to keep our supply lines open.’: Truck driver ‘touched’ by stranger’s act of kindness during pandemic

“I pulled my truck off to the rest area. I noticed two girls about 7-8 years old climb in the back of a pick-up and pull out cardboard signs. I couldn’t read the writing, but they were jumping around, waving them excitingly at every truck that passed. As I began to pull out, their mom came running towards me, waving her hands for me to stop. I left with a lump in my throat.”

‘An older gentleman stopped us and asked, ‘Do you know how to make a cheese sandwich?’ He was veteran, and he didn’t know how to cook.’: Woman urges ‘don’t forget the Marks in the world who need you to say hello’

“They had shut down his favorite restaurant, so there he was, buying bread, cheese, and White Castle microwaveable cheeseburgers. At some point, it dawned on me. He didn’t stop us because he didn’t know how to make a grilled cheese. He stopped us because he is lonely.”

‘The old man asked the cashier, ‘Do you have any toilet paper? Please, my wife is sick.’ He was exhausted and on the brink of tears.’: Man shares act of kindness for elderly man, ‘Now, more than ever, we need to look out for one another’

“I was at CVS picking up a prescription. I didn’t realize the gravity of the situation just yet. He replied, ‘No, I’m sorry. We won’t have any until next week.’ He was on the brink of tears. It took him so long to get from the counter to his car, I could just imagine the day he’d been having. ‘If you’d like, I’d be more than happy to help.’ His wife was resting in the car with an oxygen tank. My heart broke.”

‘She didn’t want to talk about it or deal with it. Mix teen hormones in and you have a recipe for disaster.’: Widow celebrates daughter’s strength after husband’s passing, gets wink from heaven

“He wasn’t just her dad. That man was her best friend. He would have moved mountains for her. He did gymnastics with her. He let her put his very short hair in ponytails. He baked cupcakes with her, every Sunday night. And then one summer night, he died holding her hand. She woke up, crawled across the floor, pulled herself up to stand on shaky legs, and decided enough was enough.”
