It is about 7:38am and I’m tired! We slept in the living room last night for ease-ability. With Everett not feeling well, for some reason, he sleeps better down there. I was stuck on the love seat, which isn’t exactly large enough to allow me any room at all. But, here I am and that isn’t going to stop me from getting stuff done today! 😀
I found a couple positive news stories that you probably didn’t hear about. This most likely because our mainstream media, of any kind, tend not to cover feel good stories all too often.
If you live in South Carolina you may have hear of this one. A 9 year old boy named Malachi Coffey is credited with saving a mans life. Allen Clemmons was working on his car when the car slid off the jacks and on top of him. He was pinned under the car for an hour. He was having trouble breathing and about to give up all hope. He gave out one more yell, before he called it quits, since he was in his backyard and not in a driveway or anything. After his last yell Clemmons saw Malachi running towards him. Clemmons did the best he could to instruct Malachi on how to get the jack back under the car and back off of the ground. He was able to get the car lifted high enough that Clemmons could escape. From here he was flown to a nearby hospital, where they found he had 6 broken ribs and a fractured pelvis. Clemmons told the media: “I don’t think I would have survived another 30 minutes, it was getting really hard to breathe. He is truly my guardian angel.” Here is a picture of Malachi and his mother:
Now wouldn’t you want to hear more things like that in the news? I would love to wake up and see this instead of who got shot where, and whether or not we are going to war with N. Korea haha.
This next one just really makes you think about how much goes on around us that we don’t really notice. A married couple, living in China recently discovered that they were once in the same photo decades before! While sitting down and going through his wife’s photo album to decided who their children resembled more, he instantly recognized himself in one of the photos! Apparently they were both by the seaside of Qingdao at the same moment. He was there because his mother had appendicitis and wasn’t able to go, so he took her place. She was only there because her mother just had an operation and wanted to visit the city to relax. He is quoted saying: “When I saw the photo, I was taken by surprised and I got goosebumps all over my body… that was my pose for taking photos. I also took a photo, it was the same posture, just from a different angle.”
Here you can see her picture with him in the background, as well as his picture from a different angle. Incredible! Neither one of them knew at the time that they just walked past their future partner. Again, it makes you wonder what you have missed, without even knowing it.
I hope those two feel good stories have brightened your morning! I’ll see you all again Monday! 😀 😀
