Finally a Happy Animal Story This Week! Mom and Her Kids Reunited .... Recently we have heard a lot of "terrible" animal stories, but I thought I'd share a "good" one. A story involving a family of ducks, a good neighbor and the help of area First Responders.
One thing I noticed from social media is that some nice things happened because of the storm. I thought it might be good to write about some of them in today's blog post. You know me...always trying to make lemonade out of life's occasional lemons.
It's World Kindness Day so I've decided to blog about kindness. It's such a wonderful thing. And it is contagious! Yet don't you encounter a lot of grumpiness and stress each day?

September 21st is known as International Peace Day. The United Nations calls upon all of us to engage in education and awareness on issues related to peace. Is your child's school doing something to mark the occasion? Maybe the kids involved you in a homework assignment about peace...
