A little generosity can go a long way.

Every child’s birthday should be a special one, even if it’s spent doing something as simple as enjoying sweet treats with friends and family. For one little girl, however, her eighth birthday came very close to ending in tragedy. But its the unexpected way a police officer rose to the occasion that will really melt your heart. 

Journey Huey, of New London, Wisconsin, spent all Sunday night baking special cupcakes before her birthday party at school the next day.

“My grandma helped me, but I mostly did most of the work,” little Journey shared with WLUK. “There were 16 of them, and I made some flowers on them and stuff, with M&Ms and some sprinkles, and some frosting.”

As Journey and her grandmother Huli Huey made their way to school the next morning, a sudden accident put their lives in danger.

“We were going down the highway and taking Jojo to school with her cupcakes for her birthday, and the next thing you know, we weren’t going down the road, we were going across the road,” Huli recalled.

After their car slid off the road, it rolled over into the treeline and, by some miracle, neither Journey nor her grandma were harmed.

“We were just driving normal, because we didn’t see anything, so then we just flipped over!” Journey shared with the news outlet.

Outagamie County Sheriff’s Office deputy Sue Bolwerk arrived on the scene shortly afterward and made sure Journey and Huli were safe and sound. Deputy Bolwerk then escorted the family to Journey’s school, Sugarbush Elementary.

Sadly, the cupcakes Journey had worked so hard to prepare for her classmates were destroyed in the accident and didn’t make it to school with her.

Even though little Journey had a sunny, optimistic outlook and planned to simply bake a new batch of cupcakes for the next day, Deputy Bolwerk wasn’t satisfied with that option.

“I thought, you know, she needs cupcakes on her birthday, so I ran down to FestivaI (Foods), don’t know, I think I grabbed about 30 of them,” Deputy Bolwerk shared with WLUK. “I wanted to make sure they had enough, and then brought them to the classroom.

Deputy Bolwerk’s commitment to going above and beyond the call of duty stunned everyone, including Journey’s grandmother, Hali: “There she was with all these cupcakes, and I thought, ‘Oh my gosh! How wonderful!’ and that’s when I start crying…she got me!”

“I guess I’ve spent my career doing these kinds of things,” Bolwerk shared with Yahoo Lifestyle. “Stuff I don’t expect to be recognized for; this is just my job.”

Although the Huey family may never know just what caused the terrifying accident on that fateful day, there’s one thing they do know: a little generosity can go a long way.

With nearly endless coverage of all the chaos and violence bombarding us on network news, not to mention the whole fight over mask mandates, coronavirus safety measures, and everything else happening in the world, it can be easy to think there’s no goodness left in the world. Of course, as long as Jesus Christ is on the throne we know that’s not true, but sometimes, you just need to be reminded that He’s still at work in the world around us. And He is, folks. He truly is. That’s why we need to hear stories like the following. Apparently, a single mom who lost her job during the lockdown over coronavirus, has donated lottery winnings to a police officer that was shot in the line of duty. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: Shetara Sims lost her job amid the coronavirus pandemic and had $7 to her name, local outlet WITN reported Tuesday. She found a $1 bill in a grocery store parking lot, bought a scratch-off ticket, and won $100. Her daughter, Rakiya Edmonson, suggested they donate the money to an officer who was shot on the job on July 2 and remains in the intensive care unit. “She won $100, and I said we should donate it to the police officer that got shot for his family to go eat and see him,” Edmonson said. Sims agreed with her daughter and said she was motivated to donate because of the empathy officers had shown her following her sister’s 2012 murder. Sims went on to discuss how detectives were really there for her and her family during that difficult season of life. “The detectives were really there for us. They were there for us more than anyone I can imagine. They did things they didn’t have to…

There really isn’t anything more American than craft beer. Before the experiment called “prohibition”, America was home to well over 2,500 breweries, with a vast majority of these businesses being family-operated and neighborhood-focused.  The banning of alcohol in the early 20th century brought this number down to around a half dozen or so companies, nearly all of whom converted their factories to produce medicine or dairy products in order to survive. Now, thanks to the resurgence of craft beer, Americans have their choice of nearly 4,000 smaller breweries to buy their swill from. And this doesn’t include brands like Coors, Miller, or Budweiser, who have all been gobbled up by giant, foreign conglomerates, making them no longer American-owned companies. In Atlanta, Georgia, the undisputed king of craft beer is Sweetwater – a brand usually focused on recreation and leisure. As visitors experience the brewery’s newly renovated taproom over Memorial Day Weekend, something special and spontaneous happened. To that, we simply say “cheers”.
