Hurricane Harvey has been tearing through Houston since it touched land last week. Many are stranded and have been displaced due to floods in the area.
Despite the tragic developments in Texas, there are some instances that will make you cry a tear of happiness. And, if anything, will restore your hope in the human spirit.
Here are some of the most inspiring stories to come out of Texas this week:
The Gallery Furniture store owner, who goes by Mattress Mack on Twitter, opened his store doors for people during the flood. He’s even posted photos of families taking shelter inside the store with the help of mattresses and couches. A 7-year-old girl came in with her family at 1:30 in the morning, asking for help.
Our GF N FWRY & GF Grand PKWY stores are open for those in need. If you can safely join us, we invite you for shelter and food. God Bless. pic.twitter.com/IHHgjKmjMY

From Houston Chronicle: Hold the beer: Anheuser-Busch sending water for victims of Harvey
Beer giant Anheuser-Busch is sending water cans to areas affected by the flood. They look like beer cans but are filled with water instead. Their Cartersville, Georgia facility halted beer production to get water ready for disaster relief.
While being escorted to safety by a SWAT officer, 13-month-old Adrian Pham fell asleep on his mother’s chest. The touching moment was caught on camera.
A resilient reporter, with the help of an equally resilient photographer, flagged down a boat to help a stranded and trapped truck driver. Her actions were praised by fellow journalists and local news stations.
