First I’d like to thank our hosts for this month Simon Falk, Roshan Radhakrishnan, Inderpreet Uppal, Damyanti Biswas and Sylvia Stein.

Now, let’s get to the truly inspiring post I read the other day.

I have a soft spot for people with disabilities, including Down Syndrome. I once considered working with special needs kids and adults because they are some of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet. And when I read this story, I teared up.

A man decided to extend his proposal to his girlfriend’s sister who has down syndrome.

“When Will Seaton started dating Ashley Schaus in 2010, he was told that she and her sister Hannah, who has Down syndrome and diabetes, were a “package deal.”

From then on, Hannah was invited to the majority of the couple’s dates, so it was only natural that she would be included when Seaton popped the question in March last year.

Seaton got down on one knee in a field of flowers near their home in Santa Claus, Indiana, and asked Hannah to be his “best friend forever” before turning to Ashley and asking her to marry him.”

Y’all! She even got her own ring. *wipes eyes* Look at that face. Look at how happy she is!

School receives donation for lunch debt for 171 kids. #WATWB

The last Friday of every month bloggers will share their stories led by six co-hosts, this month’s co-hosts are Peter Nena, Eric Lahti, Inderpreet Kaur Uppal , Roshan Radhakrishnan Lynn Hallbrooks, and me.

Not long ago, I came across this inspiring story that happened in my state, Mississippi. Mississippi gets a bad rep at times, but there are moments that I love being a Mississippian more than others. And this story is one of the many reasons why. We are called the hospitality state for a reason. 🙂

Something that has been on my mind lately is the fact that there are kids who are going to school who can’t afford lunch and their parents can’t provide lunch for them. It really hurts my heart to know that some kids starve because of this. And it’s not their fault.

Some kids will run up their credit for food because they forget money or sometimes they can’t afford. But one anonymous donor in Mississippi paid the debt for 171 kids in grades K-8.

“An anonymous donor stepped up at the beginning of May and paid off school lunch charges for all the students in the Ocean Springs School District.

Gayle Schultz, the head of child nutrition for the district, was grateful.

“That was really a great big blessing for the parents and the district,” she said.

It’s the first time they’ve had something like that happen.”

You can finish reading this inspiring article here on the Sun Herald’s website.

This just makes my heart happy! No kid should go hungry because they can’t afford lunch, and now, it makes it easier on parents who need their money as well. This reminds me that there are still good people left in this world!
