Tuesday Top Ten

This week, we shall review a top ten of news stories, that I believe are capable of making you cry, laugh, or think in dramatic excess, which is basically just how I roll:

1. This story about the older man and his 3 year old neighbor being BFFs is the sweetest, most unexpected gut punch I've had in a while. I mean, Erling Kindem, the adorable 89 year old WWII war vet in the story, saying he cried when the kid left? I can't. More feel good came from it, desipte the water buckets I cried when first reading it, so I list it first.

2. I personally believe Women's Health knocked this list of their own out of the park. The title is 15 Ways to Make People Smile Every Day and man, it made me smile just reading it. Can we all agree a few more kind gestures a day from each of us wouldn't be the worst rally we could form?

3. This article from E! News on 51 Movies You Just Have to Watch Any Time They Come on TV brought me the giggles because of all the funny one liners or scenes that came to mind. I concurred with 29 out of the 51 as my must stop and watch choices.

4. Okay, so Buzzfeed pulled together a fabulous ode to Dr. Seuss, in the form of the life lessons he taught us, which make us better humans. There are ten of them and I swear if you don't tear up AND smile wide, then we ain't in heartfeltland anymore, Toto.

5. Number five goes to good ol'Cosmopolitan magazine and their 12 Best Love Quotes Of All Time article. It's a little gag inducing but sweet none the less.

6. This story about the man who left a $1,000 tip for his waiter is just a dream come true. I believe we all want to imagine something good and unexpected occurring to us, or that we can be the one to bestow that to someone else. Just a feel good idea right here.

7. Oh lucky number 7, you are too good: 31 Signs You're Kind of Maybe a Grown-Up. I believe the opening byline says it best for everyone with "You can sleep when you're dead" is no longer in your Twitter bio. Sleep and vegetables are your biggest ~*~oBsEsSiOnS~*~*." Just, yes.

8. Part Two of Famous Words of Fashion's Greatest, courtesy of one of my personal favorites, Harper's Bazaar, is exquisite. My personal fave lines would belong to Mr. Michael Kors with "I’ve always thought of accessories as the exclamation point of a woman’s outfit" and "As far as I’m concerned, leopard is a neutral" from the wonderful Jenna Lyons.

9. Oh, oh! This is a goodie, particularly because Hunter and I will celebrate 7 years together next week. 12 Things to Never Say to Someone in a Long-Term Relationship is genius and here are my favorites:
-But do you guys ever talk about marriage?
-When will you have babies?
-Oh, I forgot you're not married.


Andddd the last one for the cheap seats in the back!

10. This one is from a few weeks ago now, but so, so uplifting, especially given the grim circumstances. When I saw this article titled Isaiah Austin Gets Honorary NBA Draft Following Career-Ending Marfan Syndrome Diagnosis, well, let's just say I thought twice before investigating the details further. I am happy to say, the story gave me happy tears, and heightened my "feel good about humanity" thoughts.


So this was fun. And long, so I totally appreciate the follow through to this point. Tell me though, which news stories or articles have caught your eye recently?

Til we meet again,
M
