Here's a story that'll brighten up your Monday.

After a gosling was separated from its mother and family this morning in Fort Collins (The Northern Colorado Wildlife Center notes that it probably got distracted by some birdseed or something similar), the NCWC located its mother not far from where it had wandered off and reunited the family.

The gosling was found after it wandered up onto someone's apartment porch, but is now safely back with mama.

With so many sad things in the news these days, it's nice to focus on something beautiful...even if it's as simple as this.
