The world can seem pretty dark sometimes, and that can seem more true than ever these days. We’re divided, we can’t agree on anything, and it’s easy to forget that everyone you see on the street is just a human, struggling and trying and sometimes winning.

These 14 people aren’t forgetting that, though, and we’re hoping these posts will remind you of all the reasons we have every day to smile.

14. Unexpected joy.

11. Adorable for sure.

My heart hurts for good reasons.

My son always texts to say he’s on his way home. So I open the door, letting his 17 year old cat, and 16 year old doggo know that he’s on his way. This is them waiting for him. Though it was adorable, and wanted to share. from aww
