My daughter got an excellent first grade mark for an essay she done. - Well done darling 3. My Dad is more comfortable after having an op on Friday. - Big hugs of love The sun is shining, my firm have told me they are going to sort out my pay (they messed up of Christmas period)and received a free childrens book in the post instead of bills.

I haven't been asked to be but I am sure whoever they choose would have to be a believer though as both parents and grandparents have strong faith, so someone like myself. Oh I bet you can't wait til June. I never found out with my children I wanted them all to be a surprise

There is only an hour and a half into my new day today but I will list 3 things that are good for me today so far. 1. I am able to get my laundry done because my washer and dryer still work properly. 2. My husband and I still love each other. 3. I still have my home and we are able to pay our bills and have some money to go get some food later today. I am very thankful for all of those things because alot of people do not have any of that. ~Amen~

You are very welcome ellie. I am so very thankful for my husband and my daughter every day and my home and everything we own. Never a day goes by that I do not give thanks for all of it. It can be so easily taken from us.

Going for a one and a half hours walk, I love walking, love the exercise and appreciating nature by walking in the countryside. Being happy and single that is a great positive thing for me which I appreciate every day, I used to take being single for granted I don't any more. I have got my beloved retreat to look forward to, I go away for a long weekend on Thursday so that is keeping me very happy, positive and upbeat!

You sound so very content, really pleased you are at such a special place and so happy. It is always good to have something to look forward to. I am also looking forward Thursday as going to visit my eldest daughter for a couple of days. Enjoy your long weekend Ellie :)

1. I started a new class at college, which I suppose is two good things in one, ended my last class, which I hated, and started a nice, easy class. 2. My new rats are loving their new home, my boyfriend and I went out yesterday and got them some new toys and other things that they needed, like a second floor that attaches to the cage we have, and a new sturdy food dish that they can't flip over. Although they are doing some redecorating, they have stopped sneezing a lot mess, due to some new bedding we picked up, and they are a lot more active! 3. I learned that I got a A in my psychology class I just finished, which means I pulled up my previous grade from a C to an A. I am trying to keep a 4.0 average,it's been one semester and two months, and each month you take 1-2 classes. So far I am maintaing my 4.0, and i'm on the deans list. That makes me VERY happy!

I'm struggling to think of 3 things anywhere as nice as yours but you said to be positive so here we go: 1) I'm thankful that I had a good night's sleep and woke up refreshed and ready to face the week at work without feeling tired (or grumpy LOL) 2) I'm thankful that I have a job to go to that pays me well and that I enjoy and that I have a lovely boss and lovely colleagues to spend such a large part of my week with 3) I'm thankful that even thought it was quite cold, it was not icy this morning so I didn't have to spend ages defrosting my windscreen (yes I'm also grateful that I have a car that I can drive to work in and not have to wait ages for a bus or train in the cold) Happy Monday to one and all. x
