Good news Friday: Slow me down, pick me up, dance for joy

It's been a bit of a challenging week for me. I'm ready for some peace and quiet, and then some unabashed fun. This week's good news starts with a slow-me-down and breathe deeply post from one of my favorite bloggers and ends with celebrating life and the goodness that is you and me. In between, a composition for the birds that's a sweet interlude for us too.

From "Arrrghhh!" to "Ahhhhhhhhh" at 65 mph

We've all had them: Those mornings when almost everything goes wrong, one frustration after another. Paul could have let the sour start infect his entire day. Learn what he did instead. Simple. Elegant. Peaceful.

Then there's this delightful composition from Jarbas Agnelli sure to tickle your fancy and give you another satisfied "Ahhhhhhhh." (approximately 1-1/2 minutes).

Dancing with Joy

And this one? Well, you're going to want to play it again, and I'm almost certain you'll have to get up and dance. You may be dancing the rest of the day. (Two minutes)

That's it for this Friday, everyone. Whatever your week has been, here's hoping your weekend starts with a smile.
We make peace in a million small ways every day.
