Yep, it *is* actually Friday again. I mean, I’m pretty SURE it’s Friday? We’ll just go with it, shall we? While the world continues to burn, there ARE good things happening out there. Sometimes it just takes a little more effort to find them. So without further ado…let’s get started!

First up, we have Jennifer Garner on The Daily Show – she’s begun a new initiative to raise money for kids to be able to get access to food and books – definitely a struggle for many children with schools closed. The stories are on Instagram, and there are SO MANY different people reading them!! It’s truly worth a $10 (or more) donation.

Next up is something that warms my bookish heart. It’s a livestream of a bird library, and let me tell you – if you need an escape that is soothing? This is a great option. Whoever had this neat idea is my new BFF (that’s not weird…right?).

I’m finding I’m more prone to tears at the most unexpected moments. Generally, with happy things, and if there is a song involved. Such as this one. It’s gorgeous and moving and YES THAT’S DUST IN MY EYE!

And last but definitely not least – I don’t know about you guys, but I’m finding it hard to take a good, deep breath these days. So much anxiety and stress, and I’m even finding it difficult to want to read (I KNOW, RIGHT?!). But here, for your viewing and listening pleasure, is a great way to tune out and BREATHE for 30 minutes. It’s a place I love, and you will too. So on that note – I wish you all a happy and healthy week. Please be kind to yourself, and to others. We need it.
