The Warm and Fuzzies

This has not been a great week, news-wise.

Fort Hood has experienced another devastating attack, Chile was rattled, and spring storm season in Oklahoma has officially commenced. People are hurting, on edge, and nervous.

That’s why I think we could all use some good news; news that will make us smile, feel inspired, and maybe even restore our faith in humanity.

 

Whenever I hear stories about 911 operators, I always think the same thing: How do they stay so calm? I was a lifeguard for 6 summers and, while I always stayed calm when I was watching patrons, on the inside I was a nervous wreck. So when I heard about Crystal Morrow, I could not believe her story!

Morrow had been training for months as a 911 operator. Her first call on her first day of work was from a frantic family member, calling for Morrow’s father. Morrow’s father is diabetic and went into shock. She didn’t reveal her identity, but stayed calm and made sure help got to her father (who recovered at a nearby hospital).

 

Just about every little girl dreams about being a Disney princess. (Personally, I’d LOVE to be Belle) And that dream has come true for Haylie Bonser. Haylie’s mom, Angela, sews outfits for her daughter and started adding princess gowns to the list! Click the link to check out some of her amazing work!

I don’t know if you were aware of this, but Wednesday was National PB&J Day! I celebrated a day late and had a PB&J for lunch. Some students at Escondido Charter High School in California decided to mark the occassion by trying to set a world record for the world’s largest PB&J sandwich! Ten students made a 51-foot, 6-inch sandwich! They used 17 jars of jelly, 25 loaves of bread, and 30 pounds of peanut butter! I wish I could’ve been there to help them eat it!
