Smile A Positive Thread - Share the positive things in your life at the moment!

Well, I normally vent here when I'm having a rough time.. but well I'm feeling really good lately. I mean things are still up in the air with his case, and he hopefully gets sentenced this Friday but all in all we're handling things better than ever.

I feel so lucky to be in a "real" relationship. Where theres no secrets. No lies. No BS. No reason to worry if he's going to cheat on me. I feel very appreciated and loved and beautiful and thats coz of HIM.

My sister whose pregnant is doing much better health wise. My sister in law's cancer has reduced somewhat. And things just look a lot brighter.

Come on ladies, I know we all deal with a lot of hard things, but I'm sure there are a few positive things in your life at the moment. Please share!

Things at my job are really good. I HAVE a job (luckier than many) which I love. My coworkers ask about my son all the time and are sooooo supportive. I finally finished clearing out my younger sister's house before the sale and although she is still in the nursing home she is a little better (strokes). I am getting more info on wheelchairs and other assistive devices for her so I am feeling a lot less overwhelmed.

Life is pretty good.

I am glad to be able to jump on this positive bandwagon! Well, I got a great new job today, my probation violation will be taken care of on Monday, and tomorrow is Halloween and I get to see all the cuties that come trick-or-treating! Life is good today!

Beautiful thread. Good things today:

My little son told me I was K-mart smart today! (too much tv)

My middle son made the basketball team!

My oldest son begged me for a mask that didn't have a price on it and promised he would wear it for the next 4 years. It was $20! (We were thinking it was going to be in the $100 range.) No take backs...4 years it is!

Me and my man are tightlikethis....even tho we are hundreds of miles apart!

Looks like my Father is cancer free! Thank you Lord.

GOD is good....all the time! I'm blessed.

Thank you J&D! Great thread!
I am 7 1/2 months clean and sober...
My friends love me. The quadreplegic man i take care of likes me. His daughter adores me cuz i paint her toenails when she comes over and help her with ideas for things to make for her dad.
I kinda like me(Finally!)
I have this unshakeable Faith now that God is always with me.
Still amazed at all the beauty in this world, and still have the belief that all people are a center of Love.

well today was actually a really sad day BUT the positivity that came from it was that i realized its time i stop being so stubborn and basically punishing my man for things from before he went in and its time to work it out and be happy because life is too short to be sad especially when you're in love!

I love positive threads...

Let's see...I woke up breathing today. Doesn't get much better than that.
I am employed and own my own home.
I have the love and support of friends and family.
My kids are awesome!
My daughter is planning on moving back home.
I'm surrounded by the unconditional love of a house full of critters (dogs & cats. The birds and guinea pigs don't care about me either way... lol)

And I am a part of the most loving, gentle, sensual, supportive and inspirational relationship of my entire life with my baby.

Yep, doesn't get much better than this...

God loves me and I love myself, too
My girls are both in college and doing well
My little business brings in enough to pay my bills but gives me plenty of time to play
I get to visit my pp, Todd, every week - Monroe is only 25 miles away
My health is good
my family lives far away... LOL... but close enough to get to when I want
I have faithful communities of friends, --- PTO, church, choir, neighborhood pals, AA,
I am truly blessed..

Thanks for the great thread.

Im alive
I have all of my limbs and organs
His dad was not seriously injured in the car accident last night.
I feel healthier every day from eating right and exercising
I look skinnier and like what I see in the mirror
The love of my life comes home in less than 2 months
I get to visit him in the morning!!
Our bed is really comfortable
My 2 cats are curled up asleep in their beds right now and they look so cute
The little cat came up to me earlier, crawled into my lap, rolled on his back and starting purring really loud. it was really sweet, he doesnt do that very often.
I love being alive and in love with my husband

Only 50 days left until I'm going to be able to hold my boyfriend's beautiful and soft hands. We haven't seen us in almost 3 years -- aaaw, I really, really can't wait. I'll stay 11 days over there, meeting his mom and grandparents. Life's great, isn't it?

Got a little choked up reading all of these posts. Thanks JD - what a wonderful way to start my morning!

I am so thankful that God lifts me close to Him and carries me thru the rough times until I am strong enough to stand on my own again, and He never leaves my side!

I am thankful for my family and friends who have been so supportive of me and Jay and cheer me on when things are down.

I am thankful for Jay. I never knew how much we loved each other until he went away.

I am thankful for ALL OF YOU, for being here to make me laugh, cry, get inspired, take my mind off of life, or give me some tough love!

I am truly blessed.
