One of my brother’s best friends is blind, yet they favor going to sport games together. I never really understood how in the world he could enjoy the game unable to see what is going on with the game, but as he explained to me, he could picture everythings listening to the announcers and feeling the energy of the crowd

She’s Confused When He Leads Blind Man Into Soccer Game, But What He Does Next Has Her In Tears

When Jose Richard walked into the football (soccer for our American readers) stadium in Bogotá, Columbia, many of the spectators thought as I did.

Jose suffers from Usher Syndrome, a rare genetic condition affecting a person’s hearing, vision, and balance, which caused him to go blind and deaf by the age of 15.
Despite the hardships that have come with this debilitating disorder, Jose didn’t lose either his spirit or his joy for life. Even though he can’t see or hear the football games he goes to, he is still able to enjoy them thanks to a very special person in his life.

Cesar Deza is Jose’s eyes and ears. Hoping to support his friend, Cesar created a miniature football field on a piece of cardboard. When they go to games together, Cesar would sit facing the field with the board on his lap while Jose sits facing him. Cesar would take Jose’s hands and runs them across the board so that his friend can feel what is going on down on the field. And he not just simply moves his friend’s hands around, he conveys the emotion and excitement of what is going on as well.

Spectators at the games were brought to tears watching this beautiful display of human kindness. It is clear both of these men are finding joy in the game and in their time together.
Jose is incredibly grateful to his friend for the kindness and compassion he has shown. He said “There was no one to interpret a football match to me,” Jose continued. “I can’t tell you how happy I was when Cesar came with me to the stadium for the first time.”

For Cesar, his actions might not be some big deal, but it has given Jose back a big piece of his life. And sometimes, it takes only one small act of kindness to change someone’s whole world!

Nursing is among the most under-appreciated professions in our society. They are often considered “less” a doctor, and only capable of grunt works and know nothing of what is going on.

Mom Confused After Waking From Surgery. What Nurse Does Next Leaves Daughter In Tears

They have to deal with bodily fluids and difficult patients (and their family members), but still do so happily and willingly, knowing they wouldn’t receive much thanks. But not everyone looks down on them. Megan Smith knows just how special and important the nurses can be.

When Margaret, Megan’s mom had to go in for surgery at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Megan was able to see firsthand the love and care the nurses showed her mother. And one nurse stood out to her, especially.

Olivia Neufelder is a nurse in the Vanderbilt’s Surgical Transplant Unit, and she is an incredibly special one, as you will soon know.
After Margaret waking up from the surgery, the lasting effects of the medicine and anesthesia took a toll on her, making her incredible. She was confused and emotional. Without a second thought to the long list of duties on her hands that day, Olivia sat down and sang “Dancing in the Sky” – one of her favorite songs – to Margaret.

As she did, no one in the room could hold up their tears, not even Olivia herself!
Touched by the love Olivia had shown her mother, Megan shared a video of the sweet moment on Facebook.
Megan wrote “You never left her side by choice!!”

“Words cannot describe the appreciation and love we feel for nurse Olivia who mom calls her angel!” She continued. “Your dedication to your patients is beyond any that I have seen, you truly are a beam of light and I cannot thank you enough for the compassion and care and love you shared for my mother. God bless you Olivia!”

The video eventually made its way back to Olivia, who said she was just as touched by the interaction as they were.
“Miss Marg has touched my heart in such an indescribable way. I am so humbled and honored to be a Nurse. My thoughts and prayers are forever with this amazing family.” Said Olivia.

The love Nurse Olivia has shown to her patients has touched our hearts so much, we couldn’t say it any better than family member Crystal Hamilton Roberts:
She wrote “Vanderbilt nurse Olivia is the best nurse ever, a God fearing Young Lady that takes time to care and love her patients. The best example of what a nurse should be.”
“If all nurses would take the time and Care for patients like Ms. Olivia,” she continued, “I believe we would see a lot more healing.”
