Everytime I click on discussions to look for something new, I see another discussion that tells me of something sad, depressing, horrible, heinous or just plain negative. Are we are depressed, angery, suicidal, PMSing, or just bitter/needing to vent? Someone please give me some good news? Even if it was something simple, something nice that happened to you today? Share something that will make us smile or laugh. Just please share something positive to help throw off all the negative that people have been experiencing...please.

So, brokentia broke the mylot rules here! Fellow users, please do little research within mylot site before starting any new discussions so that you can earn more.

Brokentia did not break any rules, the link provided above talks about a man who saved another person ... while that is good news, it's not the same discussion started here. Assuming that not everyone here has risked their lives for another person today all of the "good news" shared should be different.

Yes I know. I try To follow up on the people who are real and honest such as yourself. I wish you to get well soon. I like to use humor because I've only discovered I had some 6 yrs ago.

My hubby stood side by side with me at the stove and helped me cook dinner. It was nice... no tv show, no kids needing something :) And the extra hand is always nice too !

It's nice to have someone share the chore with instead on one feeling as if it is a burden that one must bare alone. I am happy to hear that your partner helped you! It is truly nice! Thank you for sharing.

I have good news! My daughter had her cast removed yesterday from her ankle and I was worried that she'd overdo it at school today, but she did great! I had visions of her coming home with it swollen and sore, but she said she felt great! Let's see, another good thing is that a good friend of mine who I have not seen in quite some time stopped by to see me today! That really made me happy :)

That is wonderful news. :) I have often worried when my kids go to school when they are not feeling well and such. It is always a relief when they come home from having a good day. We share in their joy. Thank you for sharing!

Well.. this isn't a huge thing, but it did help my day. I was feeling rather lonely and down and really wishing to hear from someone, only to get a really nice comment from a random person on my journal a few hours later. It was like that person was sent to cheer up my day! And it really did help. Little things like that can make a pretty big difference, I find! ^_^

I know this is a very minor thing but my car, which is 13 years old, passed another inspection at Motor Vehicle. I was surprised since it is old and the standards that need to be met keep getting more difficult so it was good day for me. We do need some good news as everything on tv is negative as well. Did anything good happen to you today?

Glad to hear you will not have to invest money into making your car to pass inspection. That is a good thing!!! :) This morning, I was upset because with my pre-diabetic diet, I really wanted toast with my eggs but I can't have it. But I got the bright idea to put a carb control tortilla under the broiler to toast it. Then put some butter on it like I would some toast...and a carb control tortilla I thought tasted horrible...turned out to be a great substitute!!!!! Yea!!!!!!!!! Thanks for asking! :)

You are welcome and I hope good things happen to you and your family everyday. Toast and eggs sounds delicious but am glad that you found an alternative to that and it tasted good.

Ok Tia here is some good news for you. First, today has been an unseasonably warm day here in Michigan, actually near 50 degrees and it is January so I spent most of the after school day with my girls, going for bike rides and such. Second, it is... errrr was January 3rd which means that Christmas break is over and the girls went back to school thus giving mee and Mrs. Mee a quiet house, for a little while. Third, Mrs. Mee slept most of the day giving Mee a quiet house.:-) Forth, I cooked dinner tonight, meatballs, noodles, and gravy and I did not burn the house down by using the stove/oven. Fifth, dinner actually tasted real good. Sixth, it is late at night 12:04am and your friend is here trying to cheer you up!! Hope this does the trick my friend. Oh and before I forget......:-P HAHAHA!!!

ha ha My kids went back to school today too. :) And tonight was left over night. LOL So microwave food is a wonderful thing! :) You made food on the stove???? Wow! Not burning the house down and it tasted good! You really are having a good day! Congrats my friend and thanks for pitching to help cheer me up! :) Oh...and our weather is too warm for the season also. Dang global warming! LOL But it allowed us to be able to walk home from school. And I realize but butt has not healed enough to be walking a couple of miles. So we had to walk slowly. But it was nice! :)

We had a blind chicken on our ranch for years. It was best friends with our female rottweiller. The dog would carry the chicken in her mouth every where she went. The chicken loved it even though she was quite wet with dog slobber most of the time They ate together, slept together it almost seemed like they spoke to eachother. The chicken would make very soft clucking noises and the dog would respond by either licking her or make a deep rumble in her chest almost like a purring sound. They were so much fun to watch

I called my mother. She's now better after being infected by Chikun gunya virus. Thats a good news for me.
4 Jan 07
Thanks for that, because it really is nice to hear good news. All the best for you and your Mum, take her out somewhere special, as she's probably been bored and sad whilst being ill, so deserves a treat, and so do you.

We finally got good news about my husband driving truck. He has been accepted to a school with a guaranteed job at the end of schooling. We will finally be a little more financially secure. My mom also called to tell us that their boxer had 5 puppies. We went to see them and they are so cute.

I, too, get a bit upset about all the depressing things on mylot. Some are real, some are imagined or trivial. But you asked for some nice things that happened today...I logged on to my mturk account to find that two of the hits I did yesterday paid a significant (for mturk) amount! That was a pleasant surprise. Also, I saw a former student as I was shopping at the large superstore he manages. He stopped what he was doing, and gave me a big smile and a wave! Minor? yes. Warms my heart? Absolutely. There is some good in the world!

I woke up this morning, and got to go be with children all day. Some of them are doing really well after Christmas break. They had a wonderful time, and loved their presents, and love their families. I know that they did not get everything they wanted, and some of them do not have everything they need, and some of the families are a little strange, but children are full of joy, happiness, and love. How is that for a positive.

Youre right, there are alot of bad things in this world as you may know but the one thing that still goes on today and always is that there is still love and love can overcome anything with enough effort.
