Good News Edition – May 12, 2018


Good morning! Oh, wait … it’s afternoon already. How did that happen?!? Well, it’s been another week of “interesting” news, but—as always—there are some happy headlines in the mix. (Thank goodness) And, on top of that, we’re apparently having an actual spring this year, which is lovely. (For a minute, I was worried Mother Nature might throw us into the deep end of summer and skip spring all together.) I hope you get a chance to get outside and experience the magic of this delicate season. There are so many green and growing things putting forth shoots and leaves and blossoms. They are a wonderful reminder of all that is good in the world.

Have a great week!
