Every so often, we need a little bit of proof that the nice way is always the best way. Remember that news story from a month or two ago, about the homeless man who safely kept an engagement ring until it was reclaimed by the woman that accidentally dropped it into his cup? As a result, the woman and her husband set up a fund to raise money for him, which has now reached over $183,000. And to top it all off, the media coverage enabled his long-lost family to reconnect with him.

It’s so lovely to be reminded that the smallest of good deeds can bring so much unexpected joy into our lives!
