The Silent Monks

It’s Christmas Eve.  What a wonderful time of year.  Many little ones won’t be able to sleep tonight as they wait to see if the tree is full of presents tomorrow morning.  As we prepare for the holiday we take a few minutes to enjoy a little song.  It is a different way to hear a favorite song.  This is a performance by a high school group playing monks. It is so entertaining.  What a cute way to share this song.  I will think of it differently everytime I hear it.

Now I just want to thank everyone for following this site throughout the year.  I hope we have been able to bring you some joy.   We may also have shed a few tears together while watching some of these stories.  I try to find appropriate news stories but sometimes just have share some cute stories like this one that just bring a smile to your face.  I appreciate those of you who are contacting me with stories that I can share with all of you.  I would ask that you take a few minutes to share these stories with your friends and family.  Everyone could use a little good news everyday.  Let’s see if in the new year we can grow this site to more and more people and share the good news.

Now remember the real reason for the season.  Please share the story of the manger and of the baby who came to save the world.  Merry Christmas to you all.

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!

Today is All About Hanukkah

Today is the start of Hanukkah.  Happy Hanukkah to all our Jewish friends who enjoy our ALittleGoodNews.com stories.  This story is all about this Jewish holiday.  Many of us that are unfamiliar with the traditions of Hanukkah.  This report tells us about the holiday through the eyes of children.  It is so cute to hear then tell the story of all the traditions and what it is all about with the reporter.  We all know that Hanukkah happens around the same time of year as Christmas. We may know it involves gifts like Christmas too.  But there is so much more to the story of Hanukkah and the traditions that many of us don’t know.  Please take a few minutes to watch this short video and enjoy the holiday with these children.  Happy Hanukkah to our Jewish friends.  May you enjoy your seven days of this wonderful holiday with your family and friends.  Thank you for sharing your story.

All about Hanukkah

Simple Joy is Contagious

There is really no story or news connected to today’s story.  It is all about the simple joy of a child.  Here is a video that is making it’s way along the internet.  It shows a New York subway where you will find all kinds of people.  You also find all kinds of musicians and street performers who try to entertain for some change.  On this day you see a little child who is overwhelmed by the music that she begins to dance.  As she dances you can see the joy that she feels quickly infect the people around her.  Oh how simple joy of a child is so contagious.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful if adult could let loose and really enjoy the simple things they experience everyday.  I often speak of keeping an eye on your surroundings.  It is important to do that so that an opportunity to help isn’t overlooked.  But also, keep an eye out for those times of simple joy that you can share with others.  Children can teach us lessons to enjoy life as it comes.  Take the time to enjoy life and share it with others even if it means to just dance.

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!
