Never Too Late.

This almost made me cry.

I ran across this story earlier today. A 94 year old woman in Texas. YES 94!!! was told she had 6 months to live. She was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. The nursing home staff where she currently lives asked if there was anything she wanted to do on her bucket list. She said she wanted to waltz. She said she and her husband (who is deceased) went once a week and she believed it kept their marriage alive.

The staff rented a limo and took her to the concert series at the Dallas Arboretum and arranged for her to have dance partners...

Here's the full story.

How awesome is that!

Write on!

Now this is inspirational...

This 9 year old kid found out he had to have heart surgery. He wanted to help pay for it, so he sold over 500 copies of his short story on ebay to help raise money for his own surgery.
