Man Books 6 Flights To Spend Christmas With Flight Attendant Daughter

Like many unlucky employees, Pierce Vaughan wasn’t fortunate enough to get the holidays off work this year. As a flight attendant, she instead spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day on several Delta Airlines flights, miles away from home.

Pierce could have easily spent the holiday without seeing a single family member in person. But her dad, Hal Vaughan, had another plan in mind. He booked a whopping six plane trips so that he could be on every one of Pierce’s flights during Christmas.

In a Facebook post, Mike Levy said he met Hal on one of those flights and posted the photos (above).

“I had the pleasure of sitting next to Hal on my flight back home,” Levy wrote. “His daughter Pierce was our flight attendant who had to work over Christmas. Hal decided he would spend the holiday with her. So, he is flying on each of her flights today and tomorrow around the country to spend time with his daughter for Christmas. What a fantastic father! Wish you both a very Merry Christmas!”

A Vietnam Vet’s Heart-Wrenching Craigslist Missed Connection

I met you in the rain on the last day of 1972 – m4w (Old State House)

I met you in the rain on the last day of 1972, the same day I resolved to kill myself.

One week prior, at the behest of Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger, I’d flown four B-52 sorties over Hanoi. I dropped forty-eight bombs. How many homes I destroyed, how many lives I ended, I’ll never know. But in the eyes of my superiors, I had served my country honorably, and I was thusly discharged with such distinction.

And so on the morning of that New Year’s Eve, I found myself in a barren studio apartment on Beacon and Hereford with a fifth of Tennessee rye and the pang of shame permeating the recesses of my soul. When the bottle was empty, I made for the door and vowed, upon returning, that I would retrieve the Smith & Wesson Model 15 from the closet and give myself the discharge I deserved.

I walked for hours. I looped around the Fenway before snaking back past Symphony Hall and up to Trinity Church. Then I roamed through the Common, scaled the hill with its golden dome, and meandered into that charming labyrinth divided by Hanover Street. By the time I reached the waterfront, a charcoal sky had opened and a drizzle became a shower. That shower soon gave way to a deluge. While the other pedestrians darted for awnings and lobbies, I trudged into the rain. I suppose I thought, or rather hoped, that it might wash away the patina of guilt that had coagulated around my heart. It didn’t, of course, so I started back to the apartment.

And then I saw you.

Keanu Reeves Has Been Secretly Funding Children’s Hospitals Around the World

keeanu reeves childrens hospital

As if you needed another reason to love Keanu Reevesit turns out that he’s been running a private charity foundation for more than ten years that funds children’s hospitals and cancer research. It’s no surprise he hasn’t told anyone – the actor is known for being nicer and more humble than Hollywood stars are usually known for.

Reeves is so unpretentious that he’s actually only talked about it one time and in an interview with a women’s magazine who had an inside track and asked him about it.

Reeves desire to help those with cancer could possibly come from the fact that his sister was diagnosed with leukemia around 1991. After battling it for nearly a decade, Kim Reeves went into remission in 1999.

“I love Kim,” Keanu said to Woman’s Day in 1999. “She’s so brave, and I want the very best for her. You can star in hit movies, but that’s nothing compared to going through what Kim’s been through.”

“Keanu helped me so much through my illness,” Kim told the magazine in the interview.

This Husband Lost 70 Pounds To Save His Wife’s Life

pj spraggins loses 70 pounds to save wife

If you ever wanted a prime example of a husband’s unfailing devotion to his wife, this is it. Tracy Spraggins was losing a lifelong battle with lupus, and needed a kidney transplant to turn things around. Her husband immediately got tested to see if he could give her one of his, and was thrilled to find out he was indeed a match. However, the doctors told him he couldn’t be her donor in his condition.

Tracy had been diagnosed with lupus when she was just 6 years old. In 2013, her health had begun to deteriorate to the point where she needed to be placed on a kidney transplant list. This was a difficult blow for her since her sister had died a few months before due to complications during a kidney transplant. There also was no guarantee she’d live long enough to get a new kidney, because the list had a seven-year wait. That’s when her husband stepped up.

However, P.J. Spraggins weighed 265 pounds when he was tested to be a transplant match for his wife, which made him an unfit candidate to donate a kidney. The doctors told him he should lose at least 30 pounds before they would consider going forward with the transplant. P.J. did just that, but upon getting retested, he found out losing weight was only half the battle.
