And a Happy Friday, denizens of Internet-world! We are a mere five days away from Halloween, and while normally I don’t give a hoot about this made-up holiday, I am now legally forced to care since a year ago on Halloween a new human came into our lives and now lives with us and needs constant diaper changing.
Lots of good news to choose from this week, but I have to start with this video that melted my heart a little. It’s of a little brother and sister playing on a tiny basketball court, and the brother makes a basket first.
Then, his little sister can’t make her shot, and starts crying. The brother then does such a beautiful thing. And everything is instantly better.
Sometimes, all it takes is a little kindness.
**Next up today, from the NFL, another really cool human-interest story. The Chicago Bears have a linebacker named Danny Trevathan, who as many do, has a very close relationship with his grandmother, Dorothy McElroy. McElroy has been battling cancer for several years and had never seen her pride and joy play a game of pro football.
Well, last week the Bears flew McElroy to Chicago to surprise Trevathan, and surprised he certainly was when she showed up at practice.
The look on his face at the :39 mark is just priceless.
**And finally today, this video went viral this week and it’s pretty much awesome. A man named Paulo Humberto posted this video of a woman talking to her baby daughter, discussing world events (or food the child doesn’t want to eat) and it’s hilarious.
I first saw it on Upworthy.com, and as the writer of the piece says, you don’t have to understand Spanish to see how adorable it is.
