Thank the Lord it’s Friday! If y’all are as tired and worn out as I am, you might need these sweet stories to make it the rest of the day until the weekend!
1. The Tiniest Heroes
The NICU of Advocate Children’s Hospital in Illinois was full of tiny superheroes this Halloween. A baby’s first Halloween is usually a fun-filled occasion with plenty of pictures and lots of candy (even if they can’t eat it just yet). It can be difficult to celebrate your baby’s first holiday while in the NICU, so these doctors and nurses try to help families make the best of their stay in the NICU. Check out the hospital’s Facebook page for more adorable pictures!
2. “It’s Okay to Cry.”
This one might make y’all tear up a little, too. What a sweet and understanding father!
3. Change is Possible
Erika Hurt’s heroin overdose that nearly killed her last year also saved her life. The photo on the top left went viral last year after Erika overdosed in her car while her baby boy was in the backseat. While recovering from her overdose in the hospital, Erika saw the news coverage of her photo and knew she never wanted to hurt herself or her baby that way again. She is now one year sober and taking excellent care of her sweet boy!
4. Two Rings!
Astros shortstop Carlos Correa proposed to his girlfriend Daniella Rodriguez after the Astros’ historic World Series win. Correa’s teammates had helped him pick out a ring and had been keeping his secret for weeks. He finally proposed during a TV interview after the win. The couple left the game with a ring each.
5. Never Too Old
George Alsberg is a 102-year-old man living in Wilmington, North Carolina. He’s seen a lot of things in his life, but one thing he never got to experience was Trick-or-Treating. The WWII veteran grew up in New York City where Trick-or-Treating was not a big tradition. By the time he learned of the festivities in his 30s, he thought he was too old. He proved himself wrong this year, as he Trick-or-Treated for the first time at 102 years old. You’re never too old to have fun!
