A place for positive thoughts, thank-you's, inspiration ... just pure happiness. In other words, the anti-vent.
Please God, be with the diver that found Griffn. That will be with him for the rest of his life. This is not easy for the divers.
59 days until I return home from Afghanistan. The BBQ restaurants better be ready...
Here we go: Chick-fil-A does not refuse service to ANYONE. The COO supports traditional family and makes contributions to charities that support traditional family. (Not to mention the millions and millions of dollars they give in college scholarships and other charitable pursuits.)
I'm so old I actually think it's best to get married before having children.
To the men who waded ashore on D-Day, some of us have NOT forgotten your sacrifice. God Bless you!
Shame on Emory if they do not keep Chick-Fil-A on their campus.If someone does not approve of Chick-Fil-A opinions, that person should just eat somewhere else. Just ridiculous they would even consider not having them on campus.....
I found a job!
My uncle did such a good thing that we just found out about yesterday. He heard of a family that had lost the father in Iraq last year. There were 3 little girls without their father. He found out that they were about to lose their house so he took some of his savings and paid off the house and gave it back to the mother. He wanted no fanfare or anything.He said he was just glad he could help. Now that is a true Christian.
When I ask my Mother-In-Law what she would like for Christmas I thought she was joking when she said groceries. I feel so bad that we didn't even notice she was having a hard time on SS. I took her to the store and told her we were going to stock her up with food. From now on we are going to send her some money every month for food. I feel so ashamed.
Left Afghanistan today... BBQ, here I come!!!
One of my coworkers filed a complaint about me, saying that I "create an uncomfortable work environment" because I follow a non-Christian religion. (She asked my religion, and I told her; that's the only time I have ever mentioned it at work.) The boss told her "Who cares? This isn't a church, this is an office. Go back to work and leave people alone." Nice to see a manager with correct priorities.
I saw this little old lady Friday trying to tell cashier at parking lot that her husband was in ICU and his SS check hadn't come yet and she had no money for parking. They were very nice to her but the more I looked at that poor little lady who could hardly walk the more my heart hurt for her. I know I must have scared her when I blocked her old car in but I had to stop her. I gave her everything I had in my billfold($300). She just started crying and so did I. My wife told me that that was the nicest thing she had ever seen me do. Did you know the first thing she did was try to pay the cashier. What a great old lady.
I am so glad that I took our elderly neighbor a plate of food over for Thanksgiving. Her house was freezing. I asked her if her furnace was broken, and she told me she was waiting on a check to buy some propane gas.That broke my heart. I called the company she used and ordered an emergency fill- up. That is going to be our Christmas present this year and it has made both of us so happy.
I'll always remember going to my 10th high school reunion and a girl I sat next to came up and thanked me for being nice to her. It turns out she had a really bad home life and there were days I was the only one who was nice to her. You just never know how you may affect someone. Be kind.
after 7 years i'm getting me and my son out of abuse. Pray for us

There is nothing wrong with husbands and sons sharing in the housework. They live there, too.
Husband got a job! No more EBT card and no more unemployment checks. Thanks to all the wonderful people who slipped me a little something for Christmas and groceries. May God bless you a hundred fold for your kindness.
Just got a +!! We've been trying since I had a miscarriage in March...so happy and scared at the same time. Can you pray for me again, Unvent family?
I want to thank the kind person that put a folded 20 dollar bill under my windshield yesterday.They must have seen me count my change to buy my $9.15 worth of gas.The money was absolutely heaven sent.
Chronic cell phone use while having lunch with a friend is a HUGE sign of disrespect for your luncheon friend. Last time I have lunch with her !! How could one be so rude?
I am so proud of my wife that she finially told the hospital to take her job and shove it after telling her 2 days before we go to Disney that she couldn't go on vacation after it was approved for 3 months.We are about to fly to Disney World in 20 minutes and when we get home if she wants to be Nurse in a different hospital no problem.She's a great and hard working Nurse.
My children are grown and my husband has passed so I work a double shift as a nurse in our hospital so that 2 nurses with small children can have the day off. It's my way of trying to help other people. I know how horrible it is not to be with your family at Christmas. Merry Christmas everyone.
It's better to be alone than with the wrong person.
