Teen Walks Into Hospital With Shoe Box. When Nurse Looks Inside Can’t Believe Her Eyes

Many of us underestimate the power of our interactions with the people we come across in our workplace. We sometimes take for granted the opportunities to be compassionate toward others and we don’t always aim to brighten up someone’s day.

Certain jobs, though, require its workers to have a bit more engagement and compassion than others.

Jeannie Joseph, a neonatal nurse at SwedishAmerican in Illinois, got to witness the blossomed fruit of some loving seeds she planted into a young girl over a decade ago.

Back in 2004, already well into her profession, Jeannie was working her usual shift when a frantic young boy in a hooded sweatshirt came into the hospital carrying a shoe box. The medical staff could sense the urgency on his face and in his posture and tended to him at once.

When they looked inside the box, they couldn’t believe their eyes. Wrapped in a dishtowel and dressed in a onesie from a doll was a six-week-old premature baby boy.

Immediately, a few nurses took the baby into isolation as others stayed behind to get as much information as possible from the young man who was, in fact, the baby’s father.

“We were sad, of course, but we had to work very fast with this baby,” Jeannie said.

Dr. Martin Anyebuno, who attended the infant the day he was brought in, was shocked that the baby arrived breathing on his own as he was gravely ill with a body temperature of 94.7 degrees Fahrenheit. The baby boy had to be treated for hypothermia, dehydration, and an infection which had been caused by his mother cutting the umbilical cord with a pair of house scissors.

Under the Safe Haven law, unharmed newborn babies can be “abandoned” at any location permitted by the law with no penalty for the parents. Jeannie told the young man that if he chose to relinquish his rights at that moment, he would no longer be able to get updates on the baby’s health. She gave him two parental bracelets so he and/or the mother could come visit any time while they made up their minds.

Mom Stunned When Waiter Returns, Rips Check to Pieces. But Then Strange Man Walks Up in Tears

Dining out is often an adventure, as friends and family gather together to enjoy each other’s company along with a good meal. Food has a way of fostering community, served up with laughter and cheer, and in this case, generosity.

A Texas mother and her baby were enjoying a meal at Cracker Barrel when the waiter approached her table at the end of the meal. Confusion crossed the mother’s face when the waiter unexpectedly ripped up her bill, right there at the table.

The waiter then uttered a sentence that Nyesha Wingate never expected to hear, “This has been paid for!” Stunned, Wingate looked around her to see if the mystery buyer was nearby.

Wingate recalled the incredible scene that took place as her eyes scanned the busy diner. “Then this amazing gentleman came up to me with tears in his eyes,” Wingate wrote on Facebook.

The outward appearance of the approaching stranger was the complete opposite of young Wingate in terms of race, gender, and age. The man walked right up to Wingate, who was holding her young son, and delivered a powerful message to the curious woman.

“We really have to get over all this tension in America,” the smiling stranger said. “And I have been looking for ways that I can put it into action!”

I was blessed this morning as the waiter at Cracker Barrell came a ripped up my check and said, "This has been paid for!…

Heart swelling with love over the man’s kindhearted gesture, Wingate didn’t hesitate to embrace her new friend named Al. “I gave him the biggest hug and thanked him!” she wrote.

Meeting Al left a positive impression on Wingate that humans are more alike than different. “How can we hate someone made by a perfect and loving God?” Wingate expressed.

She admitted that the time spent chatting with Al left both of their hearts full of gratitude. “I was more blessed by his presence and conversation [than] the paid for meal!” Wingate declared.

“Thanks Al!” Wingate concluded. “May God bless America with more people like you!”

Al’s simple act of kindness has reached eyes and ears across the globe as the story continues to spread. Two strangers, brought together over a meal and generous hearts, have left a poignant reminder for all of us to let go of our differences and be kind.

She Paid For His $8 Bill When He Forgot His Wallet At Home, Days Later He Changes Her Life

When a Georgia woman decided to do a good deed during the 2015 Christmas season, her generosity was met with a tsunami of giving. The woman, Tracy Warshal, simply paid for a man’s groceries. She didn’t know him, but she wanted to be kind.

But after doing something selfless for a stranger, who apparently had forgotten his wallet, that man turned around and donated $10,000 to the hospital Warshal worked at. This donation ended up helping the cancer patients who are in dire need of support.

Warshal posted an account of her story on Facebook following the amazing event. Check out what she wrote below!

“When I noticed a gentleman had forgotten his wallet at ALDI USA, I paid for his groceries. It was just fruit — it didn’t cost more than $8,” she said in a Facebook post.

After Warshal did the good deed, she said “Merry Christmas” and gave the anonymous gentleman her first name. Then she walked out of the store.

But the man was not about to let Warshal get away with her kindness. He tracked her down. He noticed that she had been wearing a shirt with the Piedmont Healthcare logo on it.

After a little bit of research, the man found out that she worked at the Piedmont Cancer Institute. This fact warmed his heart. Not only was Warshal a good person at the grocery store, she dedicated her life to helping people fight the hardest fight of their lives.

Then the man had a great idea. He decided to donate $10,000 to the organization in her name. Warshal had no idea about it until representatives from the organization’s fundraising team, the Piedmont Foundation, contacted her.
