After 60 years of searching, 81 year old Eileen Macken was able to meet her mother, 103 year old Elizabeth. Eileen grew up in an orphanage and started searching for her mom when she was 20 years old. She never lost hope and finally, with the help of a genealogist, Eileen met Elizabeth this past May. The two women felt an immediate affinity for each other, “There was such a bond between the two of us, it was fantastic. She’s such a kind lady, I said to my children that all this life I’ve loved this lady, even though I don’t know who she is… I’m not sure I will ever come down from this cloud, ” Eileen stated.
Vending Machine Kindness
Everyone gets hungry when they travel and Tadashi Yoshimoto, a 74-year-old Japanese farmer, had a solution. For the last 40 years, he has filled his very own vending machine with curried rice that he prepared daily and, amazingly enough, the rice came from his own rice paddy just down the road. He refills the machine twice daily with his deliciously prepared rice and curry. The cost? 300 yen (approx. $2.75)… that’s a great price for a homemade meal for a hungry traveler!
keeping watch for his peeps
Crossing a busy highway can be tricky and dangerous, maybe that’s why this turkey decided to be a “crossing guard” for his turkey friends. Love the way he stands there and patiently waits for the group to cross!!
