Florida police officer goes to great lengths to help a 91-year-old woman whose wallet was stolen at the grocery store.
An elderly woman was chatting with another shopper at a Publix grocery store in Boynton Beach, Florida when a man stole her wallet from her open purse. The 91-year-old woman had her food stamps inside the wallet so she couldn’t pay for her groceries.
And when Boynton Beach Police Department officers arrived, Officer Janelle Jumelles asked the manager to let the woman go with her food and promised to return later to pay for the groceries. The store offered to pay for it, but the officer insisted she’d take care of it.
When Officer Jumelles explained to the senior woman that she didn’t have to pay, she was in disbelief and started to cry. After a big hug, the kind hearted officer also helped the woman cancel her credit cards and reminded her to get a new driver’s license. And then, she went to the woman’s house to deliver a $60 gift card to replace the stolen food stamps in her wallet. Now that’s a happy ending.

Father’s three daughters get tested to see whose kidney is the best match for their father and one daughter donates hers just in time for Father’s Day.
While a lot of us struggled to choose just the right gift for Father’s Day this year, John Gossett’s daughters knew exactly what they wanted to get their dad. His kidneys had failed because of diabetes, and after a donor kidney failed on him, too, his kids wanted to donate one to him themselves.
All of his daughters were tested to see if they were suitable donors and 24-year-old transplant nurse Erin was found to be the best match. So she was able to give her father her kidney for Father’s Day, kind of earning her best gift for life!
She says the decision to donate her kidney to her dad was an easy one. "He's done more than I could ever ask for for a dad,” Erin explains. “This was just kind of scratching the surface on paying him back.”

New study reveals exactly how much sleep you need to be “perfectly happy”
Guess I can expect to be miserable for a while!
- A new survey reveals exactly how much sleep you need to be perfectly happy, and it’s a few minutes more than the doctor-recommended seven hours
- The study finds that to be “perfectly happy” folks need to get exactly seven hours and six minutes of sleep
- Those with less than six hours and 48 minutes of sleep reported complete unhappiness, and also exhibited “constant worry, and never a shred of gratitude”
We’re always hearing that the key to good health is to get a good night’s sleep, but apparently it may also be the key to happiness. While doctors recommend folks get at least seven hours of sleep each night, a new survey reveals exactly how much sleep you need to be perfectly happy, and it turns out, it’s a few minutes more than what doctors recommend, and those minutes are very important.
A new study of 2,000 people finds that to be “perfectly happy” folks need to get exactly seven hours and six minutes of sleep. And while that may seem specific, those who get only seven hours rated themselves only “mostly happy.” And that’s not all, folks who said they are “somewhat happy” slept for six hours and 54 minutes, while those with less than six hours and 48 minutes of sleep reported complete unhappiness, and also exhibited “constant worry, and never a shred of gratitude.”
Overall, women have a harder time getting a good night’s sleep than men, with gals also admitting they were the least happy. Not surprising, young folks, those 25 or younger, get the most sleep, while single people also sleep the most as compared to those who are separated.
