A place for positive thoughts, thank-you's, inspiration ... just pure happiness. In other words, the anti-vent.
I found a job!
For 28 years I had the best wife a man could ever ask for.Her love for me knew no bounds. I became spoiled and didn't appreciate her like I should have.I should have helped her more. Every day I have so much guilt about that.I should have held her more and told her how much I loved her every day. Now I can only go to the grave yard to tell her.DON'T do what I did. Tell your loved one every day how special they are.
Ok Unvent Family...I am 7 days smoke free today!!! It's a struggle but I am determined. Please pray that I can remain strong!!!
Loved this so much, am copying so hopefully more will see this: "The U.S. Constitution doesn't guarantee happiness, only the pursuit of it. You have to catch up with it yourself." -Benjamin Franklin
In August we will be complaining how hot it is. Just enjoy the cool weather for now. Trust me, it's GA, It'll get hot.
Our son is just graduating college on Friday and going into the Air Force on the next Wednesday. We are so proud of him. His father did the same thing. I hope he enjoys it as much as his father did.
The problem with folks is that they don't know the difference between a "need" and a "want."
You know, if you go the extra mile, it's never crowded.
Remember the true joy of life is in the trip. Enjoy every day for the little things we take for granted.
I smoked for 32 years and let me assure you it is worth it if you quit. I have not smoked for 12 years and I can now jog for 3 miles and can walk all day long without struggling. Not so when I was a smoker. Your lungs will heal. Keep up the good work. Don't give in!
My daughter bought me a whole lot of summer clothes that were just like new from the Good Will. I am so grateful for all those new clothes. I was down to zero summer clothes.
Any employer or business owner who does not appreciate his/her employees is making a HUGE mistake.
You never know how good you have it until it's gone.
Thanks everyone for your prayers!! I am 12 days smoke free now and I feel fantastic!!! Unventers Rock!!
Our younger dogs are such a big help to our 17 year old dog.He can't see very well or move very fast now so all the young ones protect him and wait for him to catch up with them when they're out in the back yard.You don't see many humans that will do that.
To the unsmoker of 7 days, good luck and God bless. Did the same thing in 1988, after 40 years. YOU CAN DO IT!
Sitting on my Grandparents 50+ year rocker I re-painted, drinking hot drink & listening to the birds...doesn't get any better than this! Miss them greatly but everyday I have this reminder of them!!
Benjamin Franklin was a very wise man in many ways.
Winston Churchill was quoted as saying, "If you are going thru hell keep going." Words to live by for this generation, as well.
My grandmother died a few years ago. I still think she was the most perfect person I have ever known. She was 99 years old and told me she was tired and wanted to go home. I hope to see her again one day.
For those ladies out there that for whatever reason never had biological children. Mother's Day is a celebration of you as well. So many women have been (and are) wonderful aunts, teachers, neighbors, mentors and role models and friends to children that might have not had otherwise. Happy Mother's Day to you!
Your mom may not be here but she is in your heart forever so you are never without her.
The pursuit of happiness is a journey, not a destination.
And Thanks to all those who donate to local food banks. It is your generosity that feeds others.
Getting old is not recommended for sissies. Few things go the way you want when you are dependent on others for your well being.
