A Little Good News?

The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up. ~Mark Twain

I tend to get most of my news from the internet -- I don't watch the news for two reasons: first, mostly it's just a bunch of stuff I don't want to hear about (I have little or no interest in Hollywood news) and second, most of it is stuff I don't need DD watching or listening to (not because she can't know about it -- but they have graphic, gratuitous pix, etc.).

In any case, I thoroughly depressed myself yesterday. It was all so bleak -- murder, rape, theft, political bashing, children hurt, natural disasters. I just couldn't stand it.

I invited folks on Facebook to share GOOD news with me, and today I do the same thing here.

I've posted "A Little Good News" by Anne Murray (and the Indigo Girls) below. It's fascinating how little has changed in thirty years...

So share your good news with me. Nothing is too small. Me? DD got through the entire day of school yesterday without complaining. That's GREAT news!

Your turn.


You Are a Frappucino

You are a ton of fun, and you're very energetic. You won't be slowed down by anyone.

You are a social butterfly and that's where you focus all your energy. You hate to work, unless your friends are there too.

You are popular, and you know how to make friends with anyone. You're very adaptable.

You are a natural social organizer, and you're good at making sure a group of friends has fun.

Good News? (Besides the pumpkin pie, of course) The weather is gorgeous, my family (even the folks) are all healthy right now, my dear friend may be taking my kids to "Bug Mainia" at the Maine State Museum, and, best of all, the Lord loves us and is merciful toward us even though we don't deserve it!

I'm getting my new Phantom screen installed today. I can't wait to get that fresh air through my front door!

The good news is that a visitor to my next door neighbor told me that she was really impressed with how well behaved my dogs were, and laughingly asked if I could train hers.

The good news for me is that I get a couple of days off of work, and alone, so i can clean the house, watch some tv, take a bath etc. I'm been in need of some alone time for a while.

I mowed today and didn't collapse of heat stroke. That always makes my day. :)

I revised 100 pages of my latest WIP--without too much chocolate.

I finished reading a fun book, my AC is fixed and wasn't too expensive, my Daughter is showing SOME maturity and I finally got a full nights sleep last night.

So glad to hear that your DD didn't complain yesterday! That's awesome news!

Hope you have a fantastic day!

Good news? Our town's new Dollar General store has finally opened! And they've been doing a booming business. :)
