A few good things I’ve read or watched online this week because we all need a little cheer this time of year:

A dying man left his 2-year old neighbor 14 Christmas presents to open in the years to come

Bao, a Disney Pixar short, made me cry. It’s unexpectedly delightful.

An artist turned a tree stump into a little free library  – so gorgeous, I want to move in!

An unlikely friendship: Charles Barkley and a Ph.D. cat litter chemist
