Feel Good News : Window Chats With Great Granny (94)

In this series we are sharing feel good news. If you would like to be included please get in touch with us. It doesn't matter how big or how small the news is. Let's celebrate it. Tag us on Instagram with the #feelgoodnews or email [email protected]

It's safe to say that a lot of people (me included) are avoiding the news throughout the day. Sticking to one reputable daily report is about as much as most of us can handle. The reports are heavy at the moment and we could all do with some feel good news. We're overwhelmed, insecure and anxious about questions that nobody can give us an answer to.

Baby's First Steps

When a child takes their first steps it is an incredible milestone. It also happens to be one that quite a few parents miss due to being at work. Many babies take their first steps when in the care of their creche or childminder. This is a difficult thing to accept for a lot of parents. This week Eavan Finucane and her husband Shane found themselves working from home due to Covid-19 precautions. In the midst of the heavy news they got some good news. Both parents were present when their baby girl took her first steps. You can watch the adorable family video here.

Make-Shift Disney Parade

We spotted this on the goodnews_movement Instagram page and it really made us smile. Due to Covid-19 a much anticipated Disney Land trip had to be cancelled for two little girls in Illinois. To try and make the girls feel better family and friends performed a Disney parade for them. It's heart warming and hilarious!

Chats with Great Granny Through The Window

Social distancing recommendations, while necessary, have been difficult for us all. Many of us are missing family members that we are used to seeing daily. In this beautiful photo we can see that 10-year-old Harlow Slattery-Madden still has her daily chats with great-granny Emily Slattery (94) in Tynagh Co. Galway . .. just through the window now! Family really is everything.
