"Lemons to Lemonade"

In this mixed up world of awful head lines from spiraling health care to war in Afghanistan; I wanted to share a sad story turned happy with you. I was listening to my FAVORITE news station on XM radio on the way to work this morning - it shall remain un-named, but let's just say I am "Fair and Balanced". Anyway, this young lady was 6 days away from what was supposed to be the happiest day of her life - her wedding day - and her groom called it off! ( My thoughts - better now than later) But how devastating for her at the last minute! Well, she already had the reception planned and paid for! She had no idea what to do - Instead of letting that rental space, food, band, and fun go to waste; the jilted bride went across the street to an assisted living home and asked could she host a party for the senior citizens the night that her reception was to be held! How amazing! The "fair and balanced" news channel had two old ladies from the senior citizens home on the network thanking the young lady for a great night of dancing and good food. Something they have not had in a long time. It just shows that people do still open their hearts for others even when they have been hurt themselves.
