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?

One Love

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.


Rain Dance

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.

  1. I saw that about migraines! Very interesting news for me personally 🎄

  2. Lovely videos of everyone singing in Jerusalem and then rain dancing in NSW. ❤ Happy Christmas, JoAnna, to you both. Wishing you much ❤ flowing in 2020. You did so very well this year, lovely. ❤

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

  4. Merry Christmas!!.. hope you have a wonderful Christmas and holiday filled with love and happiness!.. 🙂

    On Christmas day and every day..
    May love and laughter light your days,
    and warm your heart and home.
    May good and faithful friends be yours,
    wherever you may roam.
    May peace and plenty bless your world
    with joy that long endures.
    May all life’s passing seasons
    bring the best to you and yours!
    (Irish Saying)

    • Thank you for these warm and wonderful wishes! I hope your Christmas has been everything you’ve wanted and more and wish you you abundant blessings in the new year!

  5. All good news, and the Australian rain is especially welcome

  6. 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.

  7. 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.
