Seeking Balance One Tuesday at a Time

Boy Scout Rescues Couple and Dog Lost on the Trail

David King, a 12-year-old boy scout in Hawaii, was working to earn his hiking merit badge, when he and his mom discovered a couple and their dog lost on the trail. It was late in the day, the couple had run out of water, their cell phones weren’t working, and their large dog Smokey couldn’t walk, because his feet had been cut by the trail. Read about how scout David made a stretcher with T shirts for Smokey and helped the couple find their way in this article from CNN.

Overcoming Pancreatic Cancer

After battling pancreatic cancer for a year and a half, Robyn Hobson is cancer free. It’s been a rough road, and she still has an uphill climb. Robyn had surgery to remove part of her pancreas, her spleen and gallbladder, along with part of her stomach and appendix. “I just think it is a miracle that I am alive,” says Robyn. I hope you’ll watch the video in this story from Spectrum News.

  1. The welcoming Thanksgiving is special, especially after the death of Grandpa

  2. Wow, these stories always surprise me. These were great!

    • I’m glad you like the stories, Dave. I wonder if they surprise you because we don’t get the good news as easily and we are so used to bad news. ?

      • That may be part of it. I became so engrossed in the bad, expecting to see some fight on the floor of the House or Senate, or hear one more argument on CNN, or read about one more disaster. It’s so refreshing to see all these terrific stories. Not that I don’t look for them too, but it’s nice to have a ready source of good news stories. You like my Wisdom Wednesdays, I like your Good News Tuesday!
