I know it may be early but I just read a beautiful story that even got me a little emotional, as a local company in Mattawan just made someone's holiday unbelievably amazing. It may be because the holidays already have me a little emotional, but when you see something good happen to a family who has struggled with cancer, it gives you hope there are still great people out there. Jim Jilek recently hired WOW 1 Day Painting when he shared his experience:

During the estimate I was talking to the person doing the estimate who I didn’t know was one of the owners until midway through our conversation. I mentioned how we were trying to get the house updated with reselling in mind. I talked about my health and how I wanted to make sure I could do whatever possible to make sure Courtney had less to worry about and deal with in the event of my passing. The owner told me how he and his business partner both were affected by Cancer with their families. They came out yesterday promptly at 8 am with their crew and knockout out the work by 4 pm. The whole crew was professional and polite. When I went to find out who I needed to see to pay for the job I was informed that the owners had talked that morning and decided they were not going to charge us at all and did the entire job for free.

Jim is obviously going through some health struggles right now and the news got him so emotional so quickly that he said he had to walk away to collect himself before coming back to thank the employees.

THIS is what it means to love thy neighbor and to protect your fellow man. This act of kindness was the thing I needed to start the holidays and want to thank Jim for sharing his story, and we here at Townsquare Media wish him the best of health.
