Good News Edition – December 9, 2017


We know it’s been another tough week, but are you ready to look on the bright side? There really is one … more than one, actually. In fact, it’s almost like there’s a metaphorical sky filled with tiny bright bits of good news, twinkling down on us and forming constellations of hope and good will. And, even as I write this, the first snow of the season has begun to fall. Whether you enjoy snow or not, there’s no denying that it is a quintessential element of the picture-perfect New England winter. It lends a bit of holiday sparkle and you can’t help feeling a little extra cozy when the white stuff is falling.

So, we hope you enjoy the snow and catching up on this week’s collection of not-so-horrific headlines.

We send them with love and hope in our hearts.
