Got something good to say?

Conversation helps keep my mind off of eating, but I would like to fill it with good thoughts. Anyone got any good stories to share? Something someone did that made you feel good? Or, perhaps a heroic act - great or small? Any little thing you just thought was cool?

I'll start. One of the nicest things that anyone ever did for me, was: when I was 8 months pregnant and so fat that I couldn't bend over, and so sensitive to smells that I couldn't get near a bottle of pine sol, my friend came over to my house and washed out my bathtub for me. That was a truly heroic act for me at that time!

something good to say

Well you see there's this new site I found on line. There is so much good information on it and never lacks support. You can meet alot of new people with a touch of a key. You can share your thoughts and feeling and no one judges you. You can go on when ever you need to share or to vent. The list of possibilites with this site is refreshing, and gives so much enthusiasm that its contagious. This site is the best thing that has ever happened to me on line.
I want everyone I know to hear about this site.

I'll share a couple.

A few years ago we had a long season of sorrow in our family. As we prepared to leave for the fourth funeral in five months (the third in six weeks), a friend realized that I'd be gone for the arrival of the hummingbirds in our area (something she only knew because I'd anticipated it before--she herself didn't really follow hummers). She asked if I wanted her husband to put up my feeders. At the time I couldn't imagine anything that mattered less, but when I got home and they were up and full of hummers, I realized how much I would have missed them all summer and how much I needed the normal little beauties of my life just then.

Second one--the other day, chilly and rainy Idaho spring, we saw a woman and two girls shivering in front of our favorite grocery, selling Girl Scout cookies. I even heard one of the girls tell the woman she was cold. Oblivious person that I am, I barely registered it...but on my way out I followed a friend of mine who was carrying hot chocolates for them all and who also bought two boxes of their cookies. And the fun thing is, the friend was a young man in his late 20s, and my son (who is in his Scout group) said, "Oh, that? He does stuff like that all the time, Mom."

Men who are caring, compassionate, and generous in front of my boys are among my heroes!

Great stories. I agree about the "men in front of my boys." My boys have been really lucky to have had some top notch scout leaders as well, and some really great friends. I wish everyone could be so "lucky."

I was just watching the sharp-shooter competition on one of the sports stations. I don't know the names of the two top competitors, but, it was a girl against a guy. The girl won (and congrats to her) but, I have to offer a big hand to the guy. His attitude through the competition showed real class, and when he lost, he responded with a cheerful face and praising his competitor. Both of them showed impressive character.

I was broke going to school at night ! I had a old clunker of a car. The seat belt would get stuck in the door and my lights would stay on and i would get outside and need a jump. Well this one cold night years ago. On the break between class I remebered I forgot to check the seat belt because I was in such a hurry. I was having such a bad day! I had to go back to the class. I didn't even have any friends in the class I could ask for help. When I got back to the care miraculoiusly the belt was in the carr some how fixed I don't even remeber how with a letter on the steering wheel. It said I fixed your car. From your angel Wwith a happy face a halo. May God Bless my angel!

Great story! I love to hear things like that. I have always wished to have lots of money so I could be like the business man who deemed himself "Secret Santa" and went around handing out $100 bills to people in need. Your story shows that you don't have to be rich to pass out goodness. Thanks for sharing it.
