A place for positive thoughts, thank-you's, inspiration ... just pure happiness. In other words, the anti-vent.
Anyone who does a good, hard, honest day's work should feel pride and respect for themselves. Doesn't matter if you work in an office or dig a ditch.
Please keep my husband in your thoughts/prayers. He has a job interview on Friday that seems hopeful. We really need the $$$, he has been out of work for a long time.
MIRACLES......yes...we just had a BIG one to be thankful for..........brother-in-law just opened his eyes after 12 days in a coma and is actually able to communicate some!!!!!!!
My dad was a carpenter in the blazing Miami heat for over 30 years. I don't remember him complaining about his work other than saying "boy, it was hot". He almost always said, "it was a good day". He took pride in doing a good day's work. I hope I have a tenth of his work ethic.
Thirty years ago my husband was laidoff from his well paid job. He started a garbage pick-up business here in a county that didn't even have such a thing. He worked hard and has done very well. He has made a great family business and we are so proud of him. Never be ashamed of any work that is legal.
Sears delivered a large upright freezer along with a card on Monday. On the card my Father told me this was his early Christmas present, along with $ 500 in gift cards for Kroger to buy food to fill it, for the family. He gave it at the perfect time since I was just laid off. My Father is truly an Angel.
My husband and I have been working 3 part time jobs just to make up for each full time job we lost. I've been racking my brain and finially have come upon a job we can start ourselves that can support our family. Wish us luck.
This time last year my mother was recovering from having half a lung removed due to cancer. We didn't know how long we'd have her. She's still with us and doing remarkable! We have more than usual to be thankful for this year!
Let's remember to thank and respect our Veterans EVERYDAY not just on Veteran's Day!!
I took a close look at my body today and realized I didn't look half bad for 75 years old. The only problem is I'm forty-two.
If you want children to keep their feet on the ground, put some responsibility on their shoulders.
My son just got out of the Army. He went to Cobb County PD to look for a job.When they found out he has been an MP they wanted to know when he could start. Thank You Jesus for giving him such a good job.
Courage does not always roar, sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day whispering.. I will try again tomorrow.
My son was like yours and became a plumber. After 5 years he is making 3 times what my husband is.Gifted children like ours shouldn't be forced to go to a college where they will just be unhappy.
I give thanks every Thanksgiving for the men and women who protect us, both militarily and on the streets...and those who work hard to keep our food and water sources clean and safe.
Happiness is watching our 2 sons doing their homework at the kitchen table.It's the same table that their Father,Grandfather and Great Grandfather all did their homework on. You can feel all the happy souls watching over my children.
Live and let live still applies people. Some enjoy shopping on Black Friday some don't. No need for name calling.
To those who had families and beloved pets to have Thanksgiving with, be very grateful; some of us had neither anymore.
Those who skip over Thanksgiving and go straight to Christmas miss one of the best holidays. Thanksgiving is about family and enjoying the start of the holiday season.
If it was only two of us at the house I'd take my wife to the finest restaurant I could find for Thanksgiving!
When I see a veteran or a soldier in uniform I always thank them for their service.
My Mother just paid off my car for me. I had no idea she was even thinking about it. I'll just continue to pay her like I was the bank. That sure was sweet of her though.
My son started a tree cutting business 5 years ago.He has done so well that he quit his job at Lockheed and has done this full time with 5 extra crews.He is so much happier now that he is his own boss. PS I work for him also.
Courage is going through the pain of chemo and radiation without a whimper. Love you my precious Linda.
My husband told me last night that he is just tired of my cooking. That was a shock since he eats everything I put down on the table. I'm fine with that. From now on I will stop on my way home and buy just what I want for supper. He is free to buy what he wants also.
