Sensory-Friendly Santa for Kids with Special Needs
A mall in Lexington, Kentucky open early to create a safe and comfortable environment for kids with special needs. Dimmed lights, less noise, engaging activities, and wheel chair accessibility make it easier to include more kids in the Santa experience. Here’s the story with a video.
Green Light Could Relieve Migraine Pain
There’s something about green. The following article explores research using green light for migraine and other kinds of pain. The main study has people sit in a dark room with a green light for an hour a day with reduction in symptoms over time. Of course quiet time in a dark room might also be a factor. I can’t help but wonder if being in a room full of green plants would also help. Here’s the article from the Good News Network
Nurses Turn Surgical Wrap into Sleeping Bags for the Homeless
2000 large sterile wraps were being thrown away every day. But nurses at Tampa General Hospital had a different idea. Imagine if every hospital did this?
This is not new, but it came across my bow wanting to be shared again. In 2018, a thousand strangers, Christians, Jews, and Muslims, got together and sang Bob Marley’s “One Love.” Here’s how it turned out.
It’s been raining in Australia! Some fires might still be burning, but we celebrate the joy of rain where it falls. This video shows a group of firefighters with one breaking out in dance. If you can’t see it, go to the YouTube link. There’s one more below.

It’s good to see people researching things (green light) other than drugs with a zillion side effects to treat migraines (or anything).

I agree! We need more research in healing methods that have fewer side effects and hopefully lower cost to patients.

Absolutely, JoAnna. We celebrate the rain in the desert southwest (USA) too. Merry Christmas.

Reminds me of celebrating rare snowflakes in the southeastern USA. Such a relief in Australia. I hope you had a good Christmas and wish you blessings in the year ahead.

Merry Christmas JoAnna and thank you for the sunshine you spread by shining your light on positive events. The singing in Jerusalem makes me wonder what would happen if we tapped in to that strong feeling and togetherness.

Good idea, Miriam. Music is such a good way to tap into this. Anything is possible! Merry Christmastime and best wishes for the new year.
