    My 8 yer old twins are paying it forward by staying home from school to take care of me as last night I was diagnosed with a severe kidney infection and infection in my blood. I've already gotten breakfast in bed.

    My Husband and I had just moved to Michigan and we were at the Secretary of State getting our New Micghian ID's, and there was a young Gentleman next to us paying for his Father Registration and he had gotten there about 3 days past his Fathers Birthday and had to pay an extra $20, he had gone to the ATM to check his account and the young man did not have the money and was so worried. So I looked at my Husband and asked him to give me $20 so that I could pay the extra amount for this young man, and we did and the young man was so thankful that he even started to cry. He had said that he didn't realized that there was still people like us nowadays.
