Terrific News Tuesday

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. – Aesop

Hey kids…it’s time for another edition of Terrific News Tuesday!

In case this is your first time reading Terrific News Tuesday (TNT), this column is all about good news. I know it’s hard to believe, but I won’t be complaining or criticizing anyone or anything today – just writing about some terrific news that caught my attention!

Here is some of the good stuff in this edition of TNT:

  • Christmas Kindness
  • White Christmas
  • Random Act of Kindness
  • The Applebee’s Waiter
  • Best of 2015

Christmas Kindness:

Applause to a couple of organizations in Great Falls, Montana, for their work during the Christmas season:

-KRTV in Great Falls reported that the Society of St. Vincent de Paul held their annual Christmas giveaway and provided food and gifts for about 400 families.

-The Great Falls Rescue Mission hosted two Christmas parties on December 21. They expected to serve 1200 meals and distribute gifts to approximately 650 children during the party.

White Christmas?

“I’m dreaming of a white Christmas…Just like the ones I used to know…”

The good news is there is a pretty good chance that Great Falls (MT) will see a white Christmas this year! I also discovered that to be an official “White Christmas” there must be an inch of snow on the ground Christmas morning.

A white Christmas will make it easier for Santa’s sleigh to get around…

Random Act of Kindness:

Eugene Yoon felt God was calling him to do one really big random act of kindness. He was right. CBS News has the story HERE.

There’s still a lot of good left in people…

The Applebee’s Waiter:

Cheers to the Applebee’s waiter in central California who turned over $32,000 in cash that a family forgot at a table. Read the Reuters story HERE – you will feel better!

Honesty is a good thing…

Best of 2015:

A big thanks to all the organizations that put together or will be compiling the “best of” or “Top” lists for the year – I think they are really interesting and informative!

The Associated Press (AP) started putting together their top news stories list back in 1936. Click HERE for the AP’s top news stories of 2015.
