Great thread Big Sis,

You are so right...........look for the Good and you will survive the not so good. 

My good today is having Lyn here on the site, knowing how much her HealingWell Family Helps her every day she can be here. 

My good is having been blessed to have Lyn as a dear friend and a wise woman as well.

I had precancerous lesions burned off my feet yesterday,and my good as that I do have blisters on my feet but I don't look like bubble wrap. devil

I have a friend that adjusts her schedule to drive me to these appointments as your body is literally burn by the liquid nitrogen and you feel the pain, like being stung constantly until it cools down................My good part of this is my friend refers to our excursions to the clinic as "Driving Miss Daisy" days.

So we will all join the wise and wonderful  Lyn and find the good in each and every day.

 

Love you Big Sis

Lil Sis/Kitt  :-)      :-)      :-)      :-)      :-)      :-)      :-)       :-)      :-)      :-)     :-)

Lyn and Kitt,

What a great idea this is.

Lyn, I'm glad to see you here and happy to hear you are finding some "good" in each day now.  Hoping that your "goods" continue to multiply each and every day.

Kitt, are your feet all pretty again (they have to be prettier than my surgery ridden feet).  Take care of your "footies" my dearest Kitt.  I hope you are not in too much pain.  I'll loan you some of my footie healing angels (I think I can spare two and they are on their way to you).

The good for me today is seeing both of you on here and seeing that even in our not feeling so good physically times you two can give us laughter and love.

My good today is went clothes shopping with my Mom and out to lunch with her and had a wonderful time.

This is just such a great way to make you think about your day and the quality of your day and to remind us to stay in the moment and make each one count.

My Good Today is leaving on a 3 day vacation with my 14 year old granddaughter.  We are going to wisconsin to my home town and staying in Radisson on the Mississippi .  We will be doing shopping and just a trip down memory lane for me.

She has never really visited the city so we will have fun.

Hugs to all

My Good for today is not waking up in pain. Being able to sit here and listen to the birds singing and feeling the nice breeze coming in the window.

Now tomorrow might be a different story but we will cross that bridge when we get to it.

Wonderful thread

My Good for today is that the infusion I got yesterday is working and I can have a life.

Another Good is that both of my employees who had surgery recently are doing well and feeling better.

And it's always a Good when I get to share with the terrific A/P mods!

Bless each of you.

My good is finally having both misadventurous kitties home healthy again. The fluffy one got bitten by a raccoon and had to be in the hospital for a few days. She was just jealous of her sister's stay.

Kitt - so glad you had such a wonderful time with your granddaughter - family is the best isn't it.!!

Percycat - happy to hear the kitties are home and doing fine.  I love kittens/cats.

My good today is the fact that I was able to pull myself back together fairly quickly and let something go that happened at work.  I take things personally and was near tears and anger had set in, but I told myself this other person and what she said was not worth me getting all angry and frustrated over and calmed myself down.

My other good (or to me it was good but to my waist line it wasn't) was that I treated myself to a glazed donut (YUMMY YUMMY GOOD).  Okay, so that was a selfish "good" but still treated myself to something that made me happy.

Lyn,

You always have such a healthy attitude, even when you're at your lowest. Thanks for being such a good role model for the rest of us. That's my GOOD today!

Love and gentle hugs,

Lyn,

I agree with Percy.  You are such an amazing woman and I can't imagine this board without you.  Seeing your posts is ALWAYS a good in my day.

My good today is that it is noticably (finally) cooler here in Missouri and I can actually go out on my deck and sit for a few minutes without absolutely "melting away" from heat.

My good also today is that although stress from job is high, I am venting here and hopefully letting it go for the day and can finally get some sleep tonight.  I am learning to not keep everything bottled up inside.

The very good in today is that I ran 12kms without falling on my face (always a fear!!)...my new meds are affecting me badly, but I can still put on my (slightly sweaty) fairy shoes and head down to the beach. I feel so cleansed. :-)

The extra extra good is that my lovely HW family, Lyn, Kitt, Percy, Ocean, peacesoul, Sista J and (((((everyone))))) are so willing to fight for a better life, better health, and never, ever, give up nono

Not on this watch. Nya! 

Love you all,

Meg, s.i.s, fairy.
