One Sweet Lady

This is a real feel-good story and I have a couple of videos to help me share it with you.

As some of you may know, I've been called in my church as the Relief Society President in an assisted living branch. We have about 55 members in the branch and most of them are elderly women. I have come to love each and every one of them very much.

One sweet lady, Edith Young, is a real go-getter. She doesn't let age stop her from being of service to others. When she heard about babies in need of quilts she set to work making them. Here's the amazing thing, Edith turned 97 on November 22. Watch this fun video where she appeared on TV.

When the TV crew found out about Edith's crush on David Archuleta they decided to make her birthday very special. Take a look. Have a tissue ready.

Now that should get you in the holiday spirit.

Do you have a feel-good story? I'd love to hear it.

  7. Hi Kathi, thanks for sharing about that little woman of 97, she is amazing.
    I guess my feel-good feeling is when I pick up gifts to give the neices and nephews for Christmas.

    I'm glad you liked Edith's story. She is such a sweetheart.

    It's always so much fun to buy presents for others. It's what Christmas is all about.
