Good News Edition – July 21, 2018


Hello and welcome to the weekend. I hope each of you is enjoying the day to the fullest. Sounds like we’re in for a stretch of humid and rainy weather, so today may be the last day to get out in the sun for a while. (Our gardens will be happy, though!) Meanwhile, the world keeps on spinning and so do the liars in the White House. The Helsinki debacle set us all back on our heels (though—really—was anyone truly surprised?), and after that, the rest of the week was kind of a blur. BUT … there are still happy headlines to be found, and we’ve collected a few of our favorites to share with you.

Enjoy & be strong!
