A Sad Story That Ended Well!

First of all, I just have to tell you a story that my Dad told me when we met yesterday, about my little sister ... sooo touching!!



My Dad had taken my little sister shopping, and naturally, they had gone to the toy-section of the store! :) Among the stuffed animals they found a large wonderful polar bear, and my little sister fell in love with it right away! After a while, my Dad said she had to say Good bye to the bear, and she did. She's usually good at that, she can pretty much accept that the stuffed animals "live" in the store, and she accepts saying Good bye to them. Well, after walking around the store a little, my little sister caught sight of the polar bear again! She rushed there at once of course, and my Dad followed her. Just as they arrived, another man comes, picks up the polar bear, looks at and takes it and is about to leave with it!! As he turns around, he sees my little sister standing there.
She's not saying a words, but tears are trickling down her cheeks and her eyes are fixed on the polar bear.
The other man sees my Dad coming along, and he asks my Dad if this is his little girl. When my Dad said yes, the other man handed over the polar bear and told my Dad to buy it for her!!
Talk about making one little girl very happy!!!

My Dad told me the story as we had lunch yesterday, and I actually had to wipe away a tear or two!! I'm really really happy for my sister (she pretty much won't let the polar bear out of her sight now!!), and I'm most impressed by the other man, it was very big of him to let go of it ... Aparently he had kids of his own so he knew how much they take to certain things, but it was still a very decent thing to do!

My day has been very slow, I actually slept for nearly 12 hours tonight!!! Talk about being exhausted ... I guess I really need a rest now.
Other stuff are still very complicated though ... some things I've managed to more or less sort out, but there are other things that just feel very overwhelming, and I can't really say that I feel 'good' ... but I guess that's life, right?!

Hey! Finally got Blogger to work (had to switch to Beta...which doesn't work that great for me..(for instance everyone who has left a comment is now only listed as "anonymous"..which is pretty confusing...*sigh*)).. oh well, maybe it will work better later on..just glad I can comment again...

and I'm SO happy your sister got the polarbear!! :) What a sweet story!!

Jessica said...

Hey, blogger is really weird sometimes ... although I haven't had lots of problems since I switched to Beta, so I hope it will work out for you in the future! :D

Yeah, I think the story was SO sweet ... and I'm really happy that the other guy decided to give up the polar bear ...:)

Dakota said...

that's such a cute story! :)

The darkest night said...

Yeah..it's weird..I got the feeling the only way to get commenting to work again was to switch to Beta...which is kinda rude..oh well, I hope it will work better for me in the future...

yeah! That was really nice of him! Not many people would have done that! :)

Jessica said...

Dakota:
I think so too! I'm just SOOO happy it ended well! :)

the darkest night:
*weird* Anyway, I do hope that blogger will be nice to you in the future!! Me like comments! *lol*

Yeah, I know! I really didn't expect him to, there are so many self-centered people around today ... lucky my Dad remembered to thank him properly! :)

The darkest night said...

I hope so too! :)

Yeah, it's great that there are still some NICE people left in the world! :) I talked to someone last week who bragged about how she did not want to be considered "kind"...that's not a good quality, she said....Beg to differ! What's wrong with being kind? I don't mean stupid-kind, as in letting people taking advantage of you and things like that..but why is it now considered a bad thing to take the time to actually be kind to others? No wonder the world is the way it is....

Jessica said...

*yikes* That is actually SCARY!! There are people walking around in the world thinking that "kind" is bad ... I completely agree with you: No wonder the world is the way it is!

The darkest night said...

I agree...what's wrong with people today??

Jessica said...

A VERY good question ... unfortunately, I don't have a good answer...

The darkest night said...

Me neither...hey, wanna move to another planet?? Or build a barricade? or something else fun? *lol* Yes..I'm in a weird mood tonight....

Jessica said...

Ehh, yes you are ...:D
But we did discuss the fact that I might need to find another galaxy to avoid Christmas, maybe we could go there ... only nice "people" (or whatever they are) and no Christmas! Yay!!
Sorry, I'm in a weird mood too! :D

The darkest night said...

Sounds good to me! although can't I have a LITTLE bit of Christmas?? You know like the candy-cookie-decorations part (and not the relatives part)? please....

Jessica said...

Weeeeeeellllll .... not sure about that though :) Right now I tend to hate every single part of Christmas ... but you might be able to persuade me ...:)

The darkest night said...

*lol* How about I'll make you my special Christmas candy? Like 10 different kinds! There is NO problem that can not be cured by chocolate! *lol* then do I get to celebrate Christmas a LITTLE?

Jessica said...

That might be just the ticket! *lol* 10 different kinds of Christmas candy, and I might be persuaded! *LOL*
So yes, you can have a LITTLE Christmas ... so long as I won't be forced to participate in anything I don't feel like!?!! :)

The darkest night said...

It's a deal! :)


Yay..I knew I'd talk you into it.. *LOL*
