Well I am crying of course it doesn't take much to make me cry right now.  My faith in humanity is restored quite regularly when Matt's coworkers or strangers to me offer help around the house.  In spite of all the terrible people in this world there are a lot of people who help others selflessly.

There is so much goodness and hope in humanity.  It's a pity that we are bombarded with all the negativity everyday in the media.   I've had my hope in humanity restored many times, and I'm grateful.  Thank you for sharing this ♥
