These 2 Sisters Pose For A Photo With Minnie Mouse.

Disney World has long been a place for children and adults alike, that creates an otherworldly magical feeling, of insulated wonder from the real world.  For young children, who get to meet their favorite Disney characters, they have their first experience of “starstruck celebrity”.  For one little girl, Shaylee Mansfield, whom you will meet in the video you are about to watch below, her experience at Disney was truly of a “place where dreams come true”!

Shaylee is a bubbly, vivacious child who at an early age faced the world with a huge burden.  She, like her mother, is deaf.  Her parents feared that her deafness would cause Shaylee to feel isolated from others, who wouldn’t know how to sign in order to communicate with her.

They found an excellent school for her to attend, in which everyone knows sign language; this has afforded Shaylee a feeling of inclusiveness, that has opened up her world, allowing her a normal and happy childhood.

Like most young children, she longed to visit Disney World, but her parents feared that her deafness would preclude her ability to communicate with her heroes, the Disney characters.  She and her sister got to pose for a picture with Minnie Mouse, and then the most unexpected thing happened that made Shaylee and her family’s day…Minnie began to sign with her!!

In the video you are about to watch below, you will witness Shaylee’s sheer joy;  Minnie’s having learned sign language, allowed Shaylee’s Disney experience to continue to be normalized.  As her dad soaked up Shaylee’s interaction, he later explained, “It made her proud of her own language.  She made that connection.”

I hope you enjoy this video as much as I did; it is a great example of the unending possibilities of going beyond whatever disabilities we face in life. If we are willing to notice, and remain open to what is positive, life-enhancing doors are there for us to open.  Experiencing some joy is always an option, when we undo the shackles of a negative lens.

Vinegar is arguably one of the most useful substances on the planet, at least when it comes to making life in your home easier, less expensive and safer! Why use nasty chemicals that cost an arm and a leg when you can use something that has been proven by time and countless mothers and grandmothers? I personally use vinegar for more things than I can count, and I have known about the wonderful liquid since before I can remember because my mom used it for literally everything. We are going to thoroughly run through some of the best little known vinegar life hacks that will make your life so much easier.

Is your drain clogged? Try pouring baking soda, followed by vinegar, down the drain and watch the magic. Something gooey sticking to your wall? Grab the vinegar and give it a squirt, then easily wipe it away.

Does your trash can smell like garbage, even when it’s empty? Soak a piece of bread in vinegar and leave it in the garbage can overnight, and voila, no more stank. It can also be used as an all-purpose cleaner: just fill up a spray bottle with one third vinegar and two thirds water.

Too many fruit flies? Fill a glass with apple cider vinegar, cover it with plastic wrap, and poke a few holes. The flies enter, but cannot escape. It can even be used to straighten clothes if an iron isn’t available. A few other uses include keeping cats off the furniture, helping cut flowers stay fresh longer, getting tough stains out of pots and pans and cleaning glasses for a smudge-free sheen. Let us know what you think in the comments.

Hopefully you find these helpful tips and tricks over the next few weeks and months.

When it comes to cleaning just about everyone loves learning new simple ways to get the same old things done. It can be fun and interesting to discover what nifty and quick solutions people have come up with to solve common problems. This video, from YouTube channel Outdoors and Gear Review highlights a helpful trick for dealing with a common and difficult problem you’re likely to encounter when tidying and cleaning your bathroom up; hard water deposits and stains.

Hard water can be a real pain in the neck and the nasty looking stains and blemishes that it leaves behind on bathroom and kitchen surfaces can be extremely hard to fully remove. The ugly spots and stains are caused by water that contains large amounts of minerals such as limestone, calcium, and magnesium.

These metals and minerals are naturally occurring, most often in areas with low water tables and mountainous regions, and water that contains them is perfectly safe to use and drink. The biggest downside to it is the crusty, whitish colored mineral deposits and stubborn stains it leaves behind. Over time these gradually build up on stuff, especially faucets and shower heads.

Many people struggle to remove these stains and often think that they need strong, harsh chemical cleaners to get rid of them effectively. However, there’s a better and more affordable way to go about cleaning a shower head with crusted on mineral build up. All you need is apple cider vinegar, a Ziploc bag, and a rubber band.

Simply pour some apple cider vinegar into the plastic bag and place it over and on the shower head. Use a rubber band to secure it in place and then leave it on overnight. Remove the baggy the following day, wipe the shower head clean, and it should be restored to its former glory!

Check out the video for more information and to see just how shiny and spotless looking it turns out. This may be the fastest, easiest, and most natural way to clean hard water stains. It requires minimal effort or exertion on your part so try it the next time you’re stuck cleaning the house!

Check out These 5 Awesome Vaseline Life Hacks Everyone Should Know:

image via – facebook.com

While you may only think of Vaseline as an integral part of your grandmother’s home remedies and go to solutions, it actually really is a product that can seemingly do it all. People use the petroleum based, gooey, slippery substance for all sorts of things. There are countless household and beauty tricks that involve it, whether it’s loosening stuff up or smearing some on minor cuts and burns to help them heal. This article and video focuses on several beauty related uses for the product that may prove useful and come in handy, and will definitely save you time and money.

If you love to paint your nails then you likely have encountered polish bottles with their tops stuck on them. It takes almost superhuman strength to loosen and get them them of when they dry on and stick like that. To prevent this, take a cotton swab and dab some Vaseline around the base of the bottle opening and on the threads where the cap twists on, now it won’t stick the next time you go to open it.

Another nail polish trick is to coat the skin around your nails with some Vaseline before painting them. This will keep the polish from sticking to your skin, cut down on the clean up, and make your paint job look all the more professional.

If you have rough, dry skin on your feet rub a little Vaseline on them before you go to bed. Slather some all over your feet, then put on a pair of socks, and wake up to smooth soft skin. For those of us with sensitive ears that act up and become sore when wearing earrings, try rubbing Vaseline on the metal stud part that goes through your ear.

By coats the earring it helps them slide through and lessens any negative reaction or sensitivity you may have. If the scent of your perfume disappears way too quickly take some Vaseline, apply a thin coat to the area where you plan to spritz it on, then spray the perfume over that area. This works great at holding the fragrance and makes it last much more longer, plus it won’t alter the perfume’s scent.

If you haven’t already, toss a small jar of the wonder product in your bag so it’s always on hand close by. Use it to touch up makeup, soften rough skin, loosen stuck tops and lids, or as a lip gloss/chap-stick stand in when you inevitably lose or misplace them.

Besides being versatile, it’s also widely available and can be found in practically any pharmacy, health, convenience or grocery store around the world. Best of all, Vaseline is relatively cheap and costs only a few dollars, with a jar of it easily lasting a year or two before running out. With Vaseline, the possibilities may just be endless!

The Next Batch of Life Hacks are some incredibly useful winter life hacks that will make your life so much easier this winter:

image via : shutterstock.com

Along with the cold weather, there are a number of special challenges that winter brings along with it, and we all have to just deal with them! Dry skin, chapped lips, stuffy noses, darkness at 4PM, winter storms, the list goes on and on. One of the most annoying things by far is clearing walkways and driveways of snow and ice. The same goes for cars, but while you can often drive through a little bit of snow, you can’t with an ice-covered windshield. Not only is it illegal to drive with an obstructed view, it’s also insanely dumb and extremely dangerous!

While defrosting the car and scraping ice off the windshield seems like a necessary evil, it doesn’t have to be. You really don’t need to wake up extra early just to stumble around in the freezing cold darkness so that you can drive to work. Instead, you can save yourself some time and energy by doing the following:

In a spray bottle container mix together 2 parts isopropyl alcohol with 1 part water and then add in 1 tablespoon of liquid dish soap. Shake it up, spray it directly onto an icy windshield, and watch the ice literally melt away right before your very eyes!

This rubbing alcohol spray is the perfect thing to have on hand for freezing cold mornings and icy windshields. You can leave the bottle in your car and it won’t even freeze, unless it gets well under zero. That’s because the freezing point of isopropyl alcohol is -128.2 degrees Fahrenheit, so when you spray it on the ice, it doesn’t freeze up. Instead, it helps to melt the ice and keeps it from re-freezing. Since all you have to do is mist it on, it’s by far the quickest and easiest way to clear a windshield that’s coated with a thick layer of ice.

Don’t forget to check out the video to see exactly how well this works in action and be sure to pass it along to those who could use the smart tip. If it can make someone’s life a little bit easier this winter, then it’s worth it!

This is super helpful for those rough winter months.

Winter is tough. Along with the cold, dry weather comes a number of challenges that we all have to deal with. Cars need to be cleared of snow and ice and the same goes for walkways and driveways. Traveling often becomes way more difficult than usual and to top it off our health also takes a tumble for the worse.

Many of us are plagued by dry itchy skin, sore chapped lips, and stuffy noses that just won’t go away. These things quickly add up and can make it seem like winter is dragging on forever, especially when problems pop up outside on top of the health issues we may be facing.

Which is why these simple winter hacks, covered by the Millennial Moms YouTube channel, are perfect for right now. The video features some of the most clever ways to solve common winter woes and it might offer a solution to a problem you’re currently dealing with. These are some of the best hacks shown in the clip, but there are a total of fifteen, so be sure to check it out for all of the rest.

1) Winterize Boots- This trick does the job to keep feet warm and dry inside of boots that aren’t waterproof. After putting on your socks take two large plastic Ziploc bags and stick a foot in each. Grab a couple of rubber bands and slide them on over the bag to secure it in place and seal the top off around your leg. Pull on your boots and say goodbye to cold, wet feet.

2) Prevent Static Build Up In Hair- Pull a dryer sheet on over the bristles of your hair brush so that they poke through. Brush your hair as normal to eliminate the static, plus it’ll smell clean and great.

3) DIY Boot Inserts- Maintain the shape of tall boots by cutting a foam pool noodle into thirds or fourths, then stick a piece in each boot and they’ll stay upright, making them easier to organize and wear later on.

4) Stop Wipers From Freezing to a Car Windshield- Take an old pair of long cotton socks and slide them over each wiper, puling it down as far as it can go or reaches. This will prevent wipers from freezing and/or sticking to the windshield, and makes life all the more easier.

5) Organize Winter Gear- Hats, scarves, gloves, mittens, hand warmers, neck warmers and all other winter accessories can be neatly stored in one accessible place with a shoe organizer. Hang it over a door and never search for lost gloves again.

6) Windshield Treatment- This one is the best! A combination of vinegar and water works wonders at preventing frost and ice from building up on car windshields and windows. Mix the two liquids up in a spray bottle, spritz it on car windows, then wipe off with a soft cloth.

7) Boot Tray- Keep floors safe, clean, and dry by making your own boot tray. This one is much more appealing than commercially available ones and works even better. Fill a large metal cookie sheet with a layer of decorative rocks and put it near the door so that when people enter they can immediately place wet boots on the rocks. The water will drip through the rocks to the bottom and soon evaporate. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the tips covered in the clip and be sure to pass it along to those who could use these smart hacks to make their own lives easier.

These are just really helpful.

Clean air vents with small foam brushes. They can easily fit in even the smallest vents and pick up all the dirt and dust inside them.

Use coffee filters to dust your car dashboard. Unlike cloth towels and paper towels, coffee filters won’t leave behind lint or just push dust around. Instead they work great at picking up dust and you can toss a few in the glove compartment for whenever you might need one to freshen up the dash.

Get streak free windows by cleaning them with newspaper. It’s the cloths and paper towels that leave streaks when you clean your windows so don’t even bother using them. Instead, spray down the window with cleaner and wipe it off with a piece of newspaper as you normally would.

Get rid of stubborn, lingering odors by sprinkling baking soda on car seats and carpets. Let it sit for a couple of hours before vacuuming it up. The baking soda should absorb the foul odors, leaving your car smelling fresh and clean.

Mother With Disabled Daughter Goes To Walmart! Then She Discovers Disturbing Letter On Her Windshield!

image via – youtube.com

Stacy Barlow, a 43 year old mother of seven from Levittown, Pennsylvania, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease at a relatively young age. She did her best to stay strong and as healthy as possible for her family, but some days were a struggle. Just recently she had to call her fiancé, Jeff, and have him pick her up at the store because her legs had cramped up while walking around.

Most people know Parkinson’s Disease by the outward symptoms such it causes, such as shaking and trembling, slow movements, and difficulty with balance and walking. It affects the part of the brain that controls how your body moves and while it’s more common in older people past the age of 60, it can appear at any age. While there is no cure, the symptoms can be mitigated and managed with proper medical care. Even though Stacy didn’t always have the telltale tremors, her symptoms would often suddenly appear out of nowhere.

On this particular day Stacy had gone out to Walmart where she ended up parking in a handicapped spot with her hang tag clearly displayed on the rear view mirror. At the time, she had already undergone one brain surgery operation and had another one scheduled less than a month away.

After she had parked, Stacy headed right inside to Walmart where she planned on picking up some goods that she needed and doing a little grocery shopping for her family. She had brought her seven year old daughter along with her and neither of them noticed anything out of place when they arrived.

After checking out and leaving the store the pair walked back outside to the car. That’s when they noticed a white napkin stuck in the windshield under a wiper. Stacy grabbed it and saw that it was a note. When she read it, she was shocked and surprised to see that it said, “You are not disabled PIG.” As if that wasn’t bad enough, her car had also been keyed with deep scratches down the side.

Stacy couldn’t help but wonder why anyone would do such a thing. Just because her disability wasn’t blatantly obvious and she didn’t use a wheelchair or have a cane, it didn’t mean she was any less deserving to park in the spot. To leave such a nasty note and ruin her car was beyond rude and mean, it was just evil.

Later on she showed the note to Jeff and after snapping a picture he posted it online to Facebook. When Stacy read the comments, she noticed how mean some of them were, but then the positive ones started to come in and they soon drowned out the bad. People were offering their support and she felt better to see that there was a lot of understanding and compassion out there.

Fortunately, Walmart security cameras did manage to capture the person who was responsible for damaging her car and leaving the nasty note. However, the police are still trying to identify them. Hopefully they saw the news and learned that they targeted a person who was wholly undeserving of their uncalled for actions. Just because a person does not look outwardly handicapped doesn’t mean that they are not going through some tough health issues.

School Officer Spots Special Needs Girl Frozen In The Hall Then Falls To Her Knees As She Figures It Out

image via – youtube.com

Do you remember your favorite stuffed animal, toy, or maybe a blanket when you were a kid. No matter where you went you always had your friend with you by your side. There was no obstacle or problem that couldn’t be taken care of as long as you and your favorite toy were together.

Scary things just weren’t as scary and just having your small friend with you gave you the courage to do things you wouldn’t otherwise do as a young child out of fear. One of the main reasons kids carry a ‘special’ stuffed animal, blanket or toy is because it lowers their anxieties and fears in almost any situation they face.

This brings us to today’s story featuring a young 12-year old girl named Raquel Zuniga, she is currently in the 7th grade and goes to classes that are specifically designed for children with moderate to severe mental disabilities.

Raquel carries a special friend with her everywhere she goes. This friend is none other than everyone’s favorite frog Kermit! Raquel hangs out with Kermit the Frog all day everyday, whether she is home or at school Kermit is always right by her side.

Due to Raquel’s disability she has severe anxiety especially when she is transitioning from one place to another. This tends to flare up at school when the bell rings and it’s time to go from one class to another. On this day, Raquel was having an extremely rough time transitioning from one class to another and she froze. She couldn’t walk or get to her class and she wouldn’t say anything. She just stood in the hallways frozen clutching Kermit silently.

Multiple teachers came up to Raquel and tried to get her to unfreeze and comfort and make her feel safe in her current state and situation. None could help, Raquel stood their frozen for just about a full hour clutching on to her stuffed frog.

That’s when a special soul enters the story, school security officer Kris Morrison who spent the last 20 years as a school officer for special needs children. However, before that she was an officer Kris was a teacher for children with disabilities and instinctually somehow knew exactly what to do to help poor Raquel.

Kris spoke to Raquel in a soothing voice and then began to sing Rainbow Connection, the famous song that Kermit the Frog, ‘Raquel’s best friend’ is most known for. As Kris sang Raquel’s anxiety and fear just began melting away.

Soon after she began moving and it was as if a miracle just occurred and she unfroze! This was Raquels favorite song, so it immediately triggered her brain to relax and feel safe. Just like that, the magic of music, an amazing school security officer and Kermit the frog had saved the day!

THIS Nurse Discovers An Abandoned Infant At The Hospital. But Then She Removes His Blanket and Screams In Fear!

image via – youtube.com

After a new mother had just given birth at a hospital in Sao Paulo, Brazil, she took one look at her baby and left, never to be seen or heard from again. She abandoned her newborn son because he didn’t look like a normal child and perhaps she did not have the means necessary to raise and care for him right.

When a nurse came in to check on the new mother and child, she found the room empty and the two day old baby all alone. As she unwrapped his blanket she gasped aloud in horror, the boy had no limbs. The baby had been born with Hanhart Syndrome, a medical condition marked by partially missing toes and fingers, malformed jaws and tongues, or underdeveloped limbs. While it’s relatively rare, with one in twenty thousand babies affected by the disease, in this case it was severe, and the baby had no arms or legs and now no one to care for him.

He ended up at an orphanage and was put up for adoption, but the outlook seemed bleak. Whoever raised him would have to take on a more responsibility than usual as he required a lot of specialized attention and medical care.

Thousands of miles away Janelle Adams was shopping when she saw a picture of the little boy. She was immediately drawn to his photo and his story touched her heart to the point that she knew she wanted to adopt him. Soon afterwards her and her husband, Ron Adams, traveled to South America to bring the little baby home with them to Kaysville, Utah. They named him Gabe and once an orphan, he now had 13 new brothers and sisters to call family!

While life was tougher than usual for Gabe, he did his best to not let it get to him. He tried to live as normal as was possible and learned early on to use a wheelchair and be independent. His parents pushed him to overcome every obstacle in his way and today he can text, write, shower, dress himself, and do everything he needs to. He’s modified those everyday tasks that people take for granted so that he’s able to take care of himself, but it hasn’t been easy.

High school is hard for just about everyone but for Gabe it was extremely tough. Other kids were cruel and bullied him constantly about his appearance, it made him an easy target to pick on. He would cry a lot and changed schools his freshman year, but after a year away he decided to return.

Gabe felt stronger and more confident after his break and when he went back to the school he’d left, he opted to join the dance team. He had always loved dancing as it gave him new ways to move his body and kept him active. When he was twelve years old, he had secretly taught himself how to dance and soon everyone found out that he was able to break dance like no one else could!

After joining the dance team Gabe competed in a competition where he placed second and is now turning his focus on pursuing a career as a motivational speaker. He wants to share his story and experiences with people around the world and help inspire others to live their best lives. He’s living proof that nothing is impossible so long as you keep trying and never give up.

While his life has been marked by hardship early on, Gabe is thankful that he was given a second chance when he was adopted by the Adams. However, they too are just as thankful to have him in their lives and instead credit him with rescuing them. By simply just being himself and pushing through challenges, he has left them inspired and bettered their lives in ways they never knew wee possible.

Parents Of This Baby Bird Rejected Him Because Of His Deformity. Now Watch Who Rescues and Saves Him!

Little Benjamin is a lovebird baby chick who was born with a deformity.  He was the “runt”, born undersized and with splayed legs that kept him from being able to fully stand.  The poor little thing was ignored by his mom and dad because of his disabled condition; often animal parents do this out of instinct, and just feed the normal offspring.

Benjamin would have surely died, if not for the devotion of his siblings, who initially were the ones who fed the excluded little chick!  Unlike the parents, his brothers and sisters had the instinct to help their little brother, which kept him alive long enough to make it to the next part of his journey.

In the video footage below, you will watch Benny’s heartwarming story from the beginning, tiny and without feathers, to the moment when his father took over his feeding from his siblings.

With further medical help to allow his splayed legs to repair, this little bird who was left to die, first struggles to stand and eventually gets to enjoy a triumphant life thanks to the love of his siblings!
