Light in the Darkness

Welcome to my Light in the Darkness meme! (If you missed my post on the inspiration for this meme, you can read all about it HERE.)

This is the place to share good things that are happening in our world...whether it's a link to a news article/video, something from your personal experience...anything good that can bring light into darkness!
Our boys love their video games, often to the point of obsession. (They DO have their time & day limits of playing, but that doesn't stop all the talk in times of not playing!) So, I can understand this young boy's determination to save his money for a PlayStation. 

My boys have shown kindness & compassion at times, buying something for a sibling out of their own money or donating to charity. So, I can also understand this boy's change of heart, offering to use his money for something selfless & thoughtful.

But this story is about more than his kindness...there were others involved who helped him out & also did something kind for him in return.

This is such a beautiful story. Children can be quite giving and compassionate. Like you said, this story is about many kindnesses. And it all started with a generous gift from a little boy. Awesome.
