Death, despair, tragedy, and misfortune are normally my JAM, right? Well, I’ve got to say that right now, I’m kind of over it. Not totally over it (don’t worry), but sometimes I need a reminder that the world isn’t completely full of a-holes. Don’t worry, I’m not going to get all intense on you. I’m just going to give you four stories that’ll make your heart grow a little bigger and make you weep some tears of joy (get your cry on, girl!).
- Check out this 94-year-old widower who was lonely and created his own bit of happiness in his backyard.
- This kid is from my hometown and he worked hard all summer to honor the father he never knew. If I ever run into him, I’m totally giving him a hug whether he wants one or not.
- This story is one of my FAVORITES. Two guys mistakenly get a text message about a new baby and, well, they were really cute about it.
- A friendship between a preschooler and a WW2 vet is rare thing. Be prepared to smile and cry and clutch your heart because there is just so much love going on here. I just watched this for, oh, the 10th time and I still cried.
Aren’t these people great? See, there ARE good things happening all the time, but sometimes we have to look a little harder. I hope these little gems brightened up your day.
Do you have a good story? Let’s hear it!
