Last night my baby laughed at a bubble blower for 20 minutes straight. It was such pure, contagious joy and I have watched the video 100 times since then. I was going to post it here, to maybe bring some smiles to a pretty bleak Christmas, but I just can’t. I don’t want to share my girl with this kind of a world. But then I watch the video again, or walk in to her room and see her goofy face this morning, and have faith again.

Here are 26 (other) beautiful examples of the power of love, pure and simple. Like bubbles.

26 Moments The Restored Our Faith In Humanity This Year.

    Thanks for this. I needed it, like I’m sure so many others do and did! I am a teacher and forwarded it to my entire staff. Thanks again, Bailey!

    I know it may be personal to share it, but that is what we must do when faced with tragedies. It is people sharing joy that help us to not lose faith in humanity. Simple acts of defiance to horrors- that it will not keep us from hope or sharing wonderful things. If the US News would share uplifting stories like babies giggling at bubbles even half the amount that they only show tragedies, I think we would have a very different place.

    Thank you for the lil Christmas gift. I have to say that I LOVE Caine’s arcade. I encourage you to watch the video if you have not done so yet. It is awesome.

    I believe that this world is more good than bad. I know it is.
