In February 2015, a two-year-old girl named Vivian was diagnosed with childhood leukemia. She’s being treated at St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
From day one, construction was taking place outside, directly across from Vivian’s hospital window. Vivian’s family watched their little girl become more and more fascinated with the construction site. She’d wave at the workers who spent their days on the beams and cranes. She even got her very own construction hat.
Eventually, two of the workers — Travis Barnes and Greg Combs — noticed Vivian in the window. They started smiling and waving back to her, and Vivian was absolutely delighted. This sweet interaction went on for days as a special connection formed on either side of the glass.
One day, Vivian’s mom, Ginger, noticed two of the workers trying to get her and her daughter’s attention.
When Ginger and Vivian looked out the hospital window, they saw a very special message spray-painted on one of the construction beams.
In an awesome effort to cheer Vivian up, crew workers Greg and Travis did something so simple, yet so powerful, that it’s now going viral.

When Bill and Hillary first got married Bill said, “I put a box under the bed. You must promise never to look in it.” In all their 30 years of marriage, Hillary never looked. On the afternoon of their 30th anniversary, curiosity got the best of her and she lifted the lid and peeked inside. In it were 3 empty beer cans and $81,874.25 in cash.
She closed the box and put it back under the bed. Now that she knew what was in the box, she was doubly curious as to why there was such a box and with those contents. That evening, they were out for a special anniversary dinner. After dinner, Hillary could no longer contain her curiosity and she confessed, saying, “I’m so sorry, Bill. For all these years, I kept my promise and never looked into the box under our bed. However, today the temptation was too much and I gave in. But now I need to know, why do you keep the 3 beer cans in the box?”
Bill thought for a while and said, “I guess after all these years you deserve to know the truth. Whenever I was unfaithful to you, I put an empty beer can in the box under the bed to remind myself not to do it again.”
Hillary was shocked, but said,”Hmmm, Jennifer, Paula and Monica. I’m disappointed and saddened by your behavior; however, I guess it does happen and I guess 3 times is not that bad.”
Bill thanked her for being so understanding.They hugged and made their peace. A little while later Hillary asked Bill, “So why do you have all that money in the box?”
He answered, “Well, whenever the box filled up with empty cans, I took them to the recycling center.”
