A place for positive thoughts, thank-you's, inspiration ... just pure happiness. In other words, the anti-vent.
When I went to Walmart today a little old lady in front of me was trying to look through her purse for money to pay for the very basic food that was to last her a month.My heart just broke for her because you could tell she really had it rough.I had 2 Walmart gift cards I had been saving($50) to buy a new TV.I gave them to the cashier for the lady.It made me feel so much better after I did that.Then I gave her $20 for her to get something extra that she would like.I just hope that when I get old and need help someone would be there for me.
I'm so old I actually think it's best to get married before having children.
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!
Son came home safely from Afghanistan - God bless you all for your prayers. Best day ever!
My daughter said it was unbecoming for a grandmother to be out in the yard playing dodgeball with the grandchildren and neighbor children. The children begged me to stay and play. I did.
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.

My wife has been a very loyal employee of a high end store for over 25 years.She has had so many awards for selling and helping people.They are now having her work in the back doing things that new hires usually do.She knows that it is because they want younger people out front.She is going to retire in 1 week.Thank God she is one of the few left that continue to have a pension and that is what they hate.I'll be glad to have her home.They will have to look a long,long time to find a better employee than she was.Shame on that company.
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.
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.
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.
To runner: She may be a size 0 but that probably matches her IQ.
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.
Mothers and Fathers make sure your daughters are always able to provide for themselves as adults. Because, being in an awful marriage and not being financially able to provide for yourself is a scary place to be.
To all the caregivers - no one realizes how profoundly your lives have been changed. You are special and dedicated people that did not necessarily sign up for this or see it coming. May God bless you with special sunshine today.
I was having dinner out last night when I noticed a couple in the next booth.They were both on their cell phones and I didn't notice them talking to each other at all through the whole meal.Now that is SAD.
How incredible are the police, fire, military, and EMS folks who run toward gunfire, run into fires, and put their lives on the line to save us. They are truly wonderful!
I took my elderly neighbor to the doctor today.Come to find out she hasn't been to the doctor in over a year.Her children only live a mile away and never check on her.I just adopted her for my Grandmother.She has to be so lonely.We will keep an eye on her and take her where ever she needs to go.She shouldn't have to get a cab to go buy groceries.
Met an old timer in the Waffle House this morning that was hungry.No money just ordered a cup of water.Made me ashamed for complaining so much.Bought him breakfast and put a twenty in his shirt pocket.Be kind you could be next to need a meal.
To the families of those Brave Fire-fighters who were held hostage on April 10th. Your un-vent family was right there with you in prayer. And we thank God that they all went home to all of you. And, much gratitude to those brave Police Officers, who always put their lives on the line at a moments notice for the safety and protection of all of us.
Never do anything because you expect something in return. Do it because it is the right thing to do.
We are losing my mom to dementia. I'm on vacation but came in to work for a distraction. She will one day not know who she is. Please pray for the families who are going through this.
I'm a middle class American, but I shop at thrift stores, because I have learned to be wise, not proud.
I want to thank our elderly neighbor for keeping an eye on our house while we were on vacation.She stopped 2 men from breaking in by calling the police when they first pulled in our driveway.They had just cut the screen to our basement window when the police caught them in the act.
