This past week, one of my favorite columnists and my friend, John Schneider of the Lansing State Journal, wrote a powerful column about a woman who went beyond her comfort zone and reached out to a man clearly in need.

I’m sharing John’s words with you here because I believe this is the perfect holiday story to combat all the bad news, selfishness, call to shop, and often worthless reality television that is so much a part of today’s world.

I hope you’ll be inspired to share this story and then pay it’s message forward in your own lives.

If angels walk among us, then Elizabeth Jesse is one of them.

Read ‘Act of Kindness Brings Friendship, Joy & Sadness’ here.
