In an effort to give myself an attitude adjustment, today I am reminding myself of what is going well in my life. I would love for you all to share what is going well in yours. :)

I have a fabulous, sexy husband who adores me (and I him). He makes me laugh so much, my sides hurt in a good way. My two children are so beautiful, I can hardly stand it. They are happy and healthy and I get to spend time with them every single day. I have a job with a solid company and, although difficult, I am able to push myself out of bed every morning and drive myself to work.

Anyone care to share?

I have a wonderful husband who goes to work everyday. He always makes sure I am okay and if I need anything, including cash, just incase I want to go shopping. My daughter is an awesome, intelligent young woman who has a deep heart for her family and the Lord. I have kids that are always calling me mama dee when they see me. And run up to me to hug me.( I have another daughter although lives in Colorado, is doing so well, bought her own home and has a job still. We talk and laugh. I am so blessed, and the sun is shining.

I am blessed with a wonderful, intelligent 10 month old niece. I have the ability to do beadwork coming back to me. I have decent docs for once. I also have a family that loves me dearly. Also sun is shining for once here.

I have a wonderful supportive husband (who's got a nasty cold right now, he's home from work.. God bless him).  I have my mother and sister living nearby and we have a great time together, I'm blessed that my mom is still reasonably healthy at age 81. Though I'm out of work right now, we still have a roof over our heads and my husband's job is still there. (I pray that it will stay that way.. we have about 15% unemployment in our community right now, so things are very scary).  My son is healthy and a hard worker. And I have two great dogs that keep me company and bring my so much joy everyday.  Life isn't bad!!

Nice to have a positive post Ang, thanks!!  Is a good idea to remind ourselves that things aren't that bad, they could be plenty worse!!!

Even though there are days I feel pretty bad, I still consider myself a very healthy person overall. I have a wonderful husband (of 45 years) 3 grown sons who are a real joy and an extended family of relatives and friends. I feel blessed. On days I feel really good I can still go for a bike ride-even if I can't go as far as I use to. There are some difficult things going on with us right now because of economy, but we try to remain very positive. Today I am having a pretty good day, so I am going to take my dog to the dog park. If I over do it, then tomorrow may be a day of rest. And I am happy I found this forum!

Oh where do I begin, I have a loving caring husband that still has some health issues but we will get through it together as always, all three boys and families will be home this weekend, granddaughter is still pregnant and 35 wks today and only has one more week and if she goes into labor after 36 wks they are going to let her go, I have a brand new baby to look forward to soon and I have my baby Krissy. I have a roof over my head, I'm warm and I have food to eat which is a lot more than millions in this world can say. I also have a group of people that I call my Fingertip family that all mean the world to me, you guys.
Good idea Kerri, we have to look at the good in our lives.
luv and hugs

I have a loving, understanding boyfriend of a year and a half. Two wonderful kitties and a bunny who I love more than anything. I could potentialy get straight A's this term which would make all that hard work pay off!

What is good in my life? My husband and my 2 kids As a matter of fact I am watching out the window at the 3 of them driving golf balls across the lawn.
laughing and just have kid and daddy time...I could go join them but am enjoying watching it is cold out. I enjoy my critters 4 dogs and 3 cats. remember cooper is a puppy..He is really taking on a personality now. I am enjoying the flowers that are popping up out of the ground knowing that they wil soon be more than little green stems. Knowing that spring is arriving and soon summer time will be here. I enjoy coming on to this forum and seeing what is going on with everyone knowing that if I need support it is here, and hopefully I show them the same support and maybe can help someone in a small way I have wonderful parents that are pretty healthy wish they were closer I have a wonderful home that I have put a lot of sweat and even a little blood and tears into. My husband and I took a small house and made it into a comfortable home. I have a full belly and and know there is plenty where that came from. it came from pizza hut tonight you all know I had to throw in a little humor.
Live Love Laugh!!!!Love you guys

These are all wonderful responses. So glad that you shared them!

Leemadd, glad you were able to have a few moments of distraction from the pain. :)

Orlo, I can just feel the fluffy bunny & the meowing kitties in my arms right now. What a sweet picture.

Marlee, how exciting that you will have a newborn to hold soon! There is nothing like a little baby sleeping on your chest.

Jokat, congratulations on your upcoming graduation!
