If You’re Feeling Down, These 105 Wholesome Posts Might Lift You Up (New Pics)

When life gives you lemons... you do what? Make limoncello! This attitude is what we’re all about in this post. In times of the pandemic, political turmoil and soaring real estate prices that feel like yet another economic crash is somewhere around the corner (not like we care, most millennials have come to terms with the fact that they won’t be able to afford a house in this lifetime, so we find comfort in a $10 avocado toast instead), we need to lift ourselves up and balance out all the negativity.

So please, make yourself a warm cup of tea, bring on those biscuits, and tuck yourself in with a warm blanket, because we prepared you a good news-only compilation with some heart-soothing and emotionally recharging posts.

Because the truth is, no matter what, there are always good people who bring back hope when we need it the most. And some more good news awaits in our previous post right here.

#23 This Father And Son Were Treated By The Same Nurse At NICU More Than 30 Years Apart

So as many of you may know, our son was born 10 weeks early at St. Peters hospital and has been in the NICU ever since (he's doing amazing btw!). What some of you may not know is that his father (my amazing fiancee) was also born about 6 weeks early at the same hospital! Last Sunday, he dug out his baby book to show me. As I was looking through, I came across a picture of him as a baby and a lady holding him. I knew that lady!! I immediately asked him who she was and he confirmed that she was the nurse who took care of him during his stay in the NICU and his mom loved her so much that she needed a photo of the two of them on the day he was discharged! Well, the reason I know her is because I swore she was the nurse that had been taking care of our baby boy for the past three days! David didn't believe me. We brought the picture to the hospital where 3 other nurses confirmed it was her! Yesterday (Valentine's Day) she was back at work and taking care of our little nugget again so we had to recreate the picture! The past 2 weeks have been filled with worries and uncertainty but we can breathe easy knowing my lil nuggets nurse is the same one that helped the man I love when he was in the same situation.

#40 I’m Not Sure Who This Man Is. We Took All 6 Kids To Eat At Fernandos And All Brekken Wanted Was To Eat With Him

I’m sure this man just wanted to eat his meal in peace but Brekken had other plans. He was continuously crying and as I got up to take him to the car this man asked to get him. Brekken instantly stopped crying and sat and ate chips and salsa and had a conversation with him until he was ready to go. Brekken was completely content and told him bye like he had known him his whole life. It’s the small things! So, if you know him, please tell him again I said thank you. He didn’t have to do what he did but completely made Brekken’s whole day.

#57 Single Mother Dressed Up As A Dad, So The Kid Wouldn’t Miss Donuts With Dad Day

Today at my son Elijah's school, as I was dropping him off, I asked him why there were so many cars. He said "donuts with dad", so we quickly went back home because I wasn't about to let him miss out. I know seeing other dads with their kids isn't easy for mine but its life, at least I can do whatever it takes to put a smile on that face, so here it goes.
