Being able to witness small, random acts of kindness is a blessing. But knowing that there are still people willing to give a hand regardless of one’s status is just too overwhelming, and that despite all the negativity happening in the world today, they are bound to make a difference in the lives of others–rich or poor, black or white, stranger or not.

Living up to this example is the owner of P.B. Jams sandwich shop in Oklahoma City, who just made everyone’s day when she posted this message outside her shop.

The message outside P.B. Jams was captured and posted by Instagram user Greg King.

The message says,

“To the person going through our trash for their next meal,

You’re a human being worth more than a meal from a dumpster. Please come in during operating hours for a classic PB&J, fresh veggies, and a cup of water at no charge. No questions asked.”

Local news KFOR was able to talk to Ashley Jiron,  the 30-year-old owner of P.B. Jams.

Last week, I had noticed some bags, when I had taken out the trash, were torn open and some of the food was taken out,” Ashley said.

That really, it hurt me that someone had to do that,” she added.

The message earned positive feedbacks from netizens after being posted in Instagram.

I think we’ve all been in that position where we needed someone’s help and we just needed someone to extend that hand, and if I can be that one person to extend that hand to another human being then I will definitely do it,” Ashley said.

Ashley’s message spread across various sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit.

Her family and friends must be very proud. As a bonus, she has earned some prospective customers in the process, which I believe, she truly deserves. Great things really come to kind people. God bless you!

A Mother Meets Her Daughter’s Killer In Court. What She Did Next Left Me In Tears. Unexpected!

A mother forgives her daughter’s killer in court. Why she did it will amaze you!

Being able to forgive is perhaps the bravest act one can do. Though it does not require extensive physical abilities, deciding to forgive can initially pinch the heart and puzzle the mind for long periods of time. Although we have heard some stories about forgiveness, we think the latest tale that we found can topple all the forgiveness stories that we have ever encountered.

Meet Ady Guzman-DeJesus, a mother whose daughter was killed two years ago due to a gunshot fired by her daughter's classmate, Jordyn Howe, inside the school bus. Two years after the accident, Ady and Jordyn faced each other again in court. During the proceedings, Ady did the most unexpected thing: she hugged Jordyn and offered a plea deal. It must be really hard for a parent to forgive the person who took away his/ her child, but Ady surprisingly mustered the guts to do it.

Jordyn accidentally shot Lourdes Guzman-De Jesus in November 2012, when Jordyn brought his stepfather's gun to school, and showed it to his friends at the Mimami-dade school bus. He then accidentally pulled the trigger and the bullet went straight towards Lourdes' neck, causing her death. Initially, Ady wanted a grave sanction for the young man but then she realized that fighting to cause another person's misery won't bring her daughter back. She finally decided to forgive her daughter's killer, and said she is now at peace. Ady asked the judge to reduce Jordyn's sentence, and suggested to have him travel with her on the road instead so she can lecture him about the dangers of guns.

Retired Lady Works 10 Hours a Day Making Quilts. What She Does With Them is Awesome!

Quilting is a gift that you give to yourself – and to others.

The bright morning sunshine bathes my room, as I gently wake up to the sound of birds singing. I slowly amble out of bed to look out my window and gaze at the beautiful horizon, right where the water meets the sky. Oh, how I love living beside the sea. I yawn sleepily and thank God for a new day. My stomach grumbles, so I mildly nudge my sleeping husband to wake him up so we can have our breakfast.

This is how I have imagined my retirement to be - living a peaceful life with my husband of 50 years in a lovely home beside the sea. I believe most of us have imagined what it would be like to be retired. With life offering thousands of choices, there's just a myriad of possibilities.

However, for Trudie Hughes-Sontoski, there was just one possibility - and she made sure that it would happen.

A 93-Year-Old Man Chose To Live Alone In A Cabin Deep In The Woods. His Reason? I’m Awed!

The 93-year-old man puts simple, independent living to a whole new level!

To each his own - this was what 93-year-old Jack English had said when asked why he chose to live in a cabin deep in the forest. He had always wanted a simple life away from the city. However, he and his late wife had responsibilities to their families, so they had to live in the city during their marriage. Before he lost his wife to ovarian cancer in 2001, his wife told him that he can go ahead and live where he have always dreamed of. And so he set foot deep down into the forest and lived in a cabin on his own since then.

The place is very memorable to Jack because he used to go there when he was 11 years old - nature tripping and doing all sorts of activities. And while some people would want to move forward, he chose to do the opposite. "I want to go back," he said.

He now makes violin parts for a living and spends each day as unruffled as possible. This 93-year-old man still has the energy and the power to live alone - chopping woods and making ends meet on his own. He is such as inspiration!
