Music Makes Everyone Happy

Music makes the world go around.  Here is a video that just makes you smile.  Imagine walking into an elevator with the world troubles on your heart.  All of a sudden the other people in the elevator break out into song.  What could be better.   “Service is a smile. It is an acknowledging wave, a reaching handshake, a friendly wink, and a warm hug. It’s these simple acts that matter most…” – Richelle E. Goodrich

Whether we are going to school or work, Mondays can be pretty tough. But one small act of kindness or care can make a difference in your day. Jubilee Project is excited to share their latest test project where they surprised people in the elevator with a little concert and a little bit of dancing from the talented Lana McKissack and Nick Riedell. What a great idea to share your talent in music with strangers that just happen along. We hope this video brings you some laughter and joy and remember, one small gesture can be of such great encouragement to someone around you.

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

Babies and Dogs- What could be cuter?

What is better than babies laughing…  Babies and dogs. I selected this video today that really doesn’t have a story attached to it.  It is not news.  It is just cute.  Everyone needs something just cute once in a while. There are too many aweful things on the news and in our daily lives.  Why not just take just under 4 minutes and watch the cuteness of babies laughing at puppies.  It would keep us all younger if we could just laugh like these little ones.  Laughing is so good for you.  So, just take some time and laugh.  Laugh when you can.  It will keep you young.  Share it with those you love.

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

Rainworks – Rain Activated Art

Happy Earth day!!  Here is a great story about caring for the earth and joy to people at the same time.Peregrine Church is a man with a plan.  He creates street art that only shows up when it rains. Hidden when dry, these messages or images appear on sidewalks all over Seattle and are meant to brighten your day, even when it’s gray and rainy!  He was watching a video on the internet one day showing a guy demonstrating a chemical that would keep you dry.  They were pouring red wine on white clothes and nothing soaked in.  He thought this could be something we could use to bring message to people on rainy days.  Living in Seattle he began creating these messages all over town.  This product is environmentally safe.  It is just plain clever and fun to those who cross these messages.  What a great idea to use this to bring joy to people on rainy days.  Great job sir.  I think we should be using this everywhere to just bring a little message of joy to people.  I love this idea.  What do you think?  So simple yet it can be so powerful.

Son Brings Joy to His Mother

Sometimes you want to do something nice for someone, something that brings joy. This is a story about a son who worked very hard to do something nice for his mom. I have seen other videos like this but this one really touched me with the feelings he has to bring his mother so much joy.  We don’t get the back story of why she wanted this car but you can tell that it was very special to her.  You can also see that he got much more joy from this act just by giving it to her.  I love his statement at the end, “This is a wonderful moment, and a rate one. Do one nice thing for your parents today.  It doesn’t have to be big. Give them a call and let them know how much they mean to you.”.  He is right.  Don’t wait.  Don’t let another day slip by without sharing your love with someone.  It can be your parents, your children, your family or even your friends.  Time takes away those we care about too soon.  Don’t let time rob you of sharing your love with others.  It doesn’t have to be a huge gift like this one.  Just watch the video and enjoy his joy of giving. Thanks again to Patricia M for sending us this story.
