Feel Good 1


When the pandemic hit the US back in mid March, no one really knew what was going on. Some people still believe the virus is a hoax. Others know all too well this virus and COVID-19 are real.

Whether you believe everything that is going on or think the world is overreacting, I think everyone can agree 2020 has turned out to be a very stressful year. By the time April came around I decided to help bring a little positivity to the world by creating this FEEL GOOD FRIDAY series.

Beginning with Jarm Del Boccio’s post on April 17th to Jennie Lou Harriman’s post on July 31st, I hope this series has brought a smile to your face. Hopefully it has helped connect us all during a time when it feels like we are all alone in our fear and concern over an unknown future where so many people are struggling to adjust to a “new normal”.

I will be continuing this series on my own for as long as I am able and invite other authors and friends who follow this blog to reach out to me if you have an uplifting post you would like to add to this series. Let’s chat and see if we can continue to spread a little light of kindness and cheer during these grey times.

For now, I leave you with a few things that made me smile today…
