I made a batch of vegan cookies for my grandfather who has kidney failure and is eating a vegan diet to help his kidneys.

Right before we left for China to complete the adoption of our daughter, we went to a local Target store to register for an upcoming baby shower. While waiting in the customer service line, my husband struck up a conversation with a woman about our upcoming trip. As we made our way around the store scanning items for our registry, the woman my husband was talking to approached us with her daughter and handed us a bag. In the bag: two adorable outfits and a rattling baby doll for our new daughter. We, literally, were speechless.
I have told so many about this act of kindness...and the baby doll went with us to China to hand to our daughter as she was handed to us.
We don't know this woman's name, but we will always share the story of the kindness she and her daughter shared with us!
I recently went online to buy a local discount coupon book when I realized I could easily raise hundreds for my favorite local charity by signing on as a fundraiser instead...I signed up and in the past month I've raised nearly $300 for a childhood hunger program just by asking friends and family if they'd like to purchase one!
As most of you know, I have just gotten a new job. The only "bad part" is that Cayden, my granddaughter by my 16 year old daughter, has to go to daycare now. We have a wonderful friend who agreed to keep her until the end of May (when her mama gets out of school for the summer). I approached her yesterday about what I owe her so far, and do you know that she won't take a penny from me?! She told me that this is HER "Pay It Forward" and that if I want to do something, I can donate to the mission group she works with or donate to their garage sale that is going to support their mission work. How awesome is that?? Cayden is thriving with her, and I am so grateful for this. It has made the transition SO much easier on everyone.
