1. First Important Lesson – “Know The Cleaning Lady”
During my second month of college, our professor gave us a pop quiz. I was a conscientious student and had breezed through the questions, until I read the last one: “What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?”
Surely this was some kind of joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times. She was tall, dark-haired and in her 50s, but how would I know her name? I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Just before class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our quiz grade.
“Absolutely,” said the professor. “In your careers, you will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say “hello.”
I’ve never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was Dorothy.

Margaret Thome Bekema, 97, was supposed to graduate from Grand Rapids Catholic Central High in 1936. Instead, she had to leave school at age 17 because she had to take care of her ill with cancer mother and her siblings while their father went to work.
These unhappy circumstances prevented her from graduating with her Class of 1936. However, 79 years later, Bekema received an honorary diploma thanks to a distant relative.
“I thank you from the bottom of my heart,” Bekema told Mlive. “I had to quit school to take over the family. It was hard, you have no idea how hard that was. I loved high school and I had lots of friends.” Central Principal Greg Deja added, “her life has been one of sacrifice and service. It has been so encouraging and inspiring for our community because her choices represent all the core values that we teach our students.”+
Thanks to two kind-hearted women, rescued battery chickens are experiencing how good – and cozy – life can be.
Nicola Congdon and her mother, Ann, from Falmouth in Cornwall, England, own around 60 hens and half of them are former battery chickens. This means that they have, unfortunately, spent most of their lives in cages, and are not able to acclimatize to normal weather conditions.
To keep them warm during the frigid winter months, Ann and Nicola came up with an ingenious solution: knit them wooly chicken jumpers.
“It’s important to make people aware of the poor conditions the hens live in and the fact that they have no feathers when they are retired.”
Nicola and Ann are now receiving special requests for jumpers from hen-keepers near and far. Instead of selling the tank tops for profit, she said the money goes to an AIDS orphanage in South Africa.

Mamihlapinatapei (Yagan, an indigenous language of Tierra del Fuego): The wordless yet meaningful look shared by two people who desire to initiate something, but are both reluctant to start.
Oh yes, this is an exquisite word, compressing a thrilling and scary relationship moment. It’s that delicious, cusp-y moment of imminent seduction. Neither of you has mustered the courage to make a move, yet. Hands haven’t been placed on knees; you’ve not kissed. But you’ve both conveyed enough to know that it willhappen soon—¦ very soon.
Yuanfen(Chinese): A relationship by fate or destiny. This is a complex concept. It draws on principles of predetermination in Chinese culture, which dictate relationships, encounters and affinities, mostly among lovers and friends.
From what I glean, in common usage yuanfen means the “binding force” that links two people together in any relationship.
But interestingly, “fate” isn’t the same thing as “destiny.” Even if lovers are fated to find each other they may not end up together. The proverb, “have fate without destiny,” describes couples who meet, but who don’t stay together, for whatever reason. It’s interesting, to distinguish in love between the fated and the destined. Romantic comedies, of course, confound the two.
Cafuné (Brazilian Portuguese): The act of tenderly running your fingers through someone’s hair.
When Hope For Paws got a video text message of two precious pups sitting atop a trash heap, they hopped in their car and went straight to the scene. For two months, these adorable little dogs were getting fed by nearby workers, but their living conditions were nowhere near perfect. No one wants to live in trash…
