Thank you for scrolling down and meeting me here to spend some time reading and reflecting on some of the great ways that people and even animals are working to make a difference in our world right now, such as:
- The Happiness Museum- there is a museum dedicated to happiness, and you can visit online! Just go to museumofhappiness.org to learn about ways you can support your own happiness, and your friends and families happiness journey as well.
- “At the Fridge Again”- Gospel singer takes some time during COVID19 quarantine to work out and record all the parts of her song about snacking during quarantine. Dare you not to sing and smile along with her at: https://youtu.be/0oeWqoDlDY4
- Canine to the Rescue- Read more about the certified crisis response therapy dog who is hard at work helping exhausted firefighters get the kind of comfort only a 4-legged friend can provide by going to: https://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/dog-bringing-joy-to-firefighters-battling-california-blazes/
