Offering a Few Minutes of Goodness

Friday, December 6, 2013

How about a spot of brightness today? Here are two stories to warm your heart and (I hope) stretch a grin across your face.

1. Christian Bucks, a second-grader in York, Pa., noticed that some of his schoolmates didn’t have anyone to play with at recess, he created the buddy bench. How it works is pretty simple and completely sweet: If a kid finds him or herself without anyone to hang with on the playground or feels a little lonely, they just head over to the bench. There, two or more kids can get to chattin’ or find something fun to go off and do together. Christian said the purpose of the buddy bench is “grow our dream circle of friends.”

Awww-worthy, right?

2. Then there’s Trick Shot Titus, the 2-year-old with the magic b-ball skills. This li’l guy can make a shot from basically anywhere. Watch this 3:54-minute video (oh, and you’ll get a taste of Bradley Cooper and Channing Tatum on the side, too):

The best part is, Titus looks like he’s having (have to, sorry) an absolute ball. Really. Didn’t you find yourself giggling along with him?

Have a great weekend, friends. May we all walk with the compassion of Christian and the joy of Titus.
