I saw this article on sandrarose.com and it shocked me to no end to see this lady knocked over like this. I had to watch this video over and over again. WOW!!! You’ve got to let me know what you think about this one. This is unreal!!!
Police in Bridgeport, Connecticut are calling Shanta Jordan a hero after she dived in front of a speeding car to save a boy she didn’t know.
CCTV footage of the horrific accident shows a woman walking along a sidewalk ahead of two boys.
Seconds later, Jordan comes into the frame as she threw her body in front of the second boy just as a car barreled toward him.
The car struck both Jordan and the boy, crushing them against a stone wall. They survived the impact but they were hospitalized with multiple fractures and internal injuries.
The other boy was also hit by the car and knocked to the ground but he escaped without injury.
The boy’s frantic mother assisted her other son off the ground before running for help.
Police say Jordan’s quick thinking and bravery saved the boy’s life.
She realized she didn’t have time to push him out of the way of the speeding car so she sacrificed her body for his by absorbing the impact of the crash.
“She is a heroine. That’s what she is,” said Bridgeport Police Chief A.J. Perez. “She is a great person, and she is an asset to this community.”
“If she did not step in, the child would be in direct contact with the motor vehicle against the wall and most likely, he would have perished,” said Perez.
Police and local leaders will honor Jordan at a ceremony at City Hall next week.
“Amazing woman, she is so brave for that,” Jordan’s friend and neighbor said. “If it wasn’t for her, that boy would not made it.”
Doctors initially feared they would have to amputate the boy’s legs, but they were able to avoid amputation.
The driver of the car was also hospitalized. He faces several charges, including reckless driving.
I am only one
But I am one!
I cannot do everything
But I can do something
And it will not let
What I cannot do
What I can do

We all need reminders to keep smiling when our heart may long for what was or what hasn’t arrived in our lives yet.
There are times that we just need to know that our prayers are heard, our hard work is not in vain, and our presence is appreciated.
Guess what? I want to let you know that what you feel will not last always. Although there is heaviness or lack, it is temporary. There are brighter days ahead.
Shift your perspective to what is going right at this moment.
Shift your thoughts to the prayers that have been answered and are being worked on right now.
Shift your tears into tears of joy. Know that everything is being worked out, even if you are unable to see or feel it right now.
Stand firm on your faith and trust that things will work and come together for your good.

I had no idea who wrote this song until I heard this guy being interviewed a couple of days ago. I have always likeD this song. It is by a young man named Jermaine Dolly and the song is called “YOU”. Dolly used to be a backup singer for Tye Tribbett who is another great gospel singer. The song really sticks to mind because I was playing it at work one day and this co-worker began dancing to it. It was the funniest sight ever…EVER. Check this song out. It really is nice.

I know I’ve been missing for a minute or two. I’ve been busy……very. Here’s some Sunday evening praise for your spirit. I’ll be visiting some of your sites real soon. I appreciate your continued support.
I’ve been hearing this song for a couple of weeks now. You have to tell me what you think about this one. It is “The Call” by Isabel Davis. I hope you’re having a wonderful day.
Today was the first time I heard this song and I absolutely love it. The lyrics are simply profound. It really speaks to the flaws that all of us have and how it is GOD that covers us all even through our shortcomings. This song is the “Flat Out” Hit of The Week on the Willie Moore Jr. Show which is on the gospel station 102.5 in Atlanta. The song is by Pastor Marlon Marvin Lock and called “You Covered Me.” This song is now definitely on my list of songs that I love. I hope it speaks to you as well. I will also leave you with the scripture that I received in my inbox today:
I will put my hope in God, and once again I will praise him, my savior and my God.
Check this song out by Tye Tribbett called “Work It Out”
This is one of those stories that you just must read and it will make your day. At least I hope it will make your day like it did mine. It is profound and speaks volumes. The story is of a little girl who is taken to Target to get a present that she has been promised by her parents. What makes this story so intriguing is that this little girl’s innocence has not yet been tainted. Hopefully it will not be. I found this story on aol.com.
Child has purest response for cashier who questioned the color of her doll

A mother of two from South Caroline took to Facebook on March 31 to share an important interaction she had during a recent family outing to Target.
Brandi Benner says she and her husband promised their daughter, Sophia, that “after 1 whole month of going poop on the potty, she could pick out a special prize at Target.”
“She, of course, picked a new doll,” Benner wrote in her post. “The obsession is real.”
But the family trip hit a small snag at the cash register, when a confused employee questioned Sophia’s choice of doll.
“While we were checking out, the cashier asked Sophia if she was going to a birthday party. We both gave her a blank stare,” Benner wrote.
The cashier continued with her line of questioning, asking Sophia if the doll was for a friend before Benner interjected to explain that the toy was a prize for her daughter’s successful potty training.
“The woman gave me a puzzled look and turned to Sophia and asked, ‘Are you sure this is the doll you want, honey?'” wrote Benner. “Sophia finally found her voice and said, ‘Yes, please!'”
The cashier then replied, “but she doesn’t look like you. We have lots of other dolls that look more like you.”
Benner explained that just as she started to get angry, her daughter stole the show with the purest answer imaginable.
“Yes, she does,” Sophia said. “She’s a doctor like I’m a doctor. And I’m a pretty girl and she’s a pretty girl. See her pretty hair? And see her stethoscope?”
Benner says after that, the cashier dropped the argument, replying with a simple, “Oh, that’s nice.”
“This experience just confirmed my belief that we aren’t born with the idea that color matters,” Benner concluded. “Skin comes in different colors just like hair and eyes and every shade is beautiful.”
Since she shared it on Facebook, Benner’s story has received a staggering 500,000 reactions and over 200,000 shares.
Benner even shared an update on her Facebook days later, thanking the Facebook community for being so supportive.
“Our family has received so much love, support and encouragement from complete strangers and that is just proof to me that there is SO MUCH good in the world,” she wrote.
However, she did address one problem she has observed in people’s reactions to her story.
“As I explained before, the cashier was an elderly woman and I believe she was completely ignorant to what she was truly saying,” Benner explained. “I feel like in her mind she was being helpful and making conversation with my daughter.”
She says she would rather people focus on the positive aspects of the exchange, rather than harp on the negative.
“I feel like the media is so addicted to negativity that we tend to harden ourselves and assume the worst in others,” she wrote. “But you guys, all I have seen and felt from all of this is pure LOVE!”
