This morning I happened to read about the happy reuniting of a wedding dress and its owner. Not just any wedding dress but the dress that has been worn for 3 generations of the owners family. When their home was destroyed by tornadoes in recent storms, the dress was rescued, still in it’s storage box and unharmed, by a river, 2 miles away. The thoughtfulness of the members of the community to help reunite the found dress with its owner is amazing. You can read about this story here.
This reminded me of another story I had read about on Facebook last week and the great work of concerned strangers to reunite a Purple Heart award with the family of the recipient. I was amazed at how fast the reunion happened after the original post was made.
This story and the wedding dress story, both small and insignificant in the overall realm of things, help make my day just a little brighter after waking to the news of more senseless death and destruction.
