(WWBT) - Happy Sunday! 

We hope you enjoyed the weekend because, unfortunately, it is almost Monday. But hopefully, that only means a five day work week and we know you can make it through! Though, let's not think about Monday just yet because there are still reasons to smile.

Express Yourself 

In the heart of Jackson Ward sits an organization that uses art to change lives for the better. Art 180 provides an outlet for area children and teens to express themselves, and although it has been doing that now for 20 years, it is still considered to be one of Richmond's "hidden gems." Here, it's all about learning to stand out by being yourself.

The Lip Sync Challenge has Gone to the Dogs

And cats too, apparently. Workers at the Richmond SPCA channeled their inner Baby and Johnny to have the time of their lives.

'Axe' Marks the Spot

If you've ever wondered what it is like to be Paul Bunyan, now is your chance to find out! River City Sports and Social Club is starting a new axe throwing league at Thirsty Joe's Drafthouse.

Walking on Sunshine

It looks like the rain chance will go down while the chance of sun goes UP! Yeah, yeah, yeah!

Nice view at Rocketts Landing yesterday thanks to Dan Belanger!

Unique Friends

A neglected horse that was found wandering the streets has formed a bond with a golden retriever at an animal rescue shelter in North Carolina. This might be one of the sweetest friendships of all.

Kindness Goes a Long Way

Everyone deserves to feel beautiful. That's why a Walmart worker stepped up to give a woman with cerebral palsy a manicure after she was denied one at the nail salon. We just love seeing things like this happen! You can't help but smile!

Who's Got the Golden Ticket?

It may not be as great as getting a chocolate factory, but you could get FREE McDonald's for life!

'Do people ever tell you that you look like Keith Urban?'

Little did this woman know when she offered to pay the bill of the man in front of her at a gas station that it would end up being Keith Urban!

Final Thought

"Monday is a state of mind. Put on your positive pants and get stuff done." - said someone at some point in time.

Now, to get us some of those positive pants...hmm...

Have a great week, y'all
