Positively Positive It's Going To Be A Good Day!

    *Yawn*...Feels good to stretch this morning. That makes 2 days this week that I've gotten a good night's sleep! That doesn't mean that I'm up in the morning any later than usual. In fact, this morning I was up at 2:45 a.m.!! But considering that I went to bed promptly at 8-ish p.m. that's pretty good!! That's over 6 hours of sleep for me. I hardly ever get that anymore!
   So, I'm up. I'm in a good mood....There's no snow in our forecast {maybe a flurry or two later today, the weather man said, but probably not}. Took my pills at the right times! (for those of you who read yesterday's post. Yikes!)...and ready to crochet my brains out today! I even wrote a poem this morning already! {It's at the end of this post} So, I'm in a positive state of mind. Watch out Massachusetts!!! LOL
   Let me show you the 2 things I'm going to list in my shop today!....I know! What's up with me doing all of the listing, huh?! I've got over 250 items in the shop now!! Well, I finally decided that if it's here in the house no one can even think of buying it, so might as well put it where it can at least be seen!
   I gave you a little glimpse of the necklace in the header photo.
    And I did have this one photographed in the past as a necklace, but I decided that it needed to be a coat brooch instead. :-)
    Don't you love all of that turquoise?!...I do!
    And I love that it's in the shape of a heart too! I think this will look nice on a coat or outer wear garment. I think it's too bold for wearing on just a scarf or sweater or something. But...I guess that'll be up to the person who buys it...assuming somebody does! :-0
    Speaking of buying, I want to thank you all for your nice words about the crocheted things and the poems I'm sharing with you hear on the blog. From comments I've gotten from buyers it appears that your nice words after receiving something, or buying something from me has encouraged other people to buy. So, a big WOOT! WOOT! to you!! :-)
     I hope me sharing what I just received in the mail will do the same thing for this seller! Look!!
    It was wrapped up so pretty!....Well, I took care of that in a hurry!!! LOL
     Look familiar?!
     See how they sparkle and shine?!....Okay, I'll stop teasing. :-) They're the free gift I received from Cindy of CinLynnBoutique!
    She recently had a Giveaway on her blog. I love her blog. You can check it out HERE.
     I'm very happy with my new dangly babies!! Now...where to wear them?! It's gotta be somewhere really fancy and la-di-dah! While I'm online shopping, or just sitting in the house watching T.V. with them on JUST WON'T DO!! LOL Thanks Cindy!!! :-)
   Okay, I'm off to get some things started! Have a good day everybody!!

How Can You Be So Positive

"How can you be so positive
with everything so bad?
When folks are so unkind
and all those doctors make you mad?"

"It's easy!" I assure them.
'Cuz one thing makes it okay.
I wake up every morning,
and I'm breathing every day!

When I can't move a muscle
and can barely lift my head,
I think of all the folks I've known
who now are gone, yes, dead!

No matter what my problem is,
and if I stand or lay,
I'm thankful that my mind still works
and I'm breathing every day!

So how am I so positive,
When things sometimes seem bleak?
It's easy, 'cuz my breathing
keeps on going every week!

Oh yes, I have a choice!

I can be miserable and whine;
Be mean to folks around me,
Be demanding and unkind.

But who would make that choice,
when there's a better way to be?
I mean, who's breathing every day
and writing poems?...ME!


  1. *sniff* *sniff*....that is such a touching poem Wug! So sensible and positive. I can't even imagine how hard it must be for you at times to stay positive, but I know you have a wonderful attitude and Jehovah gives you strength beyond normal to keep going. Keep those things strong!!

    Thank you for such a nice post on your earrings! I'm so glad you like them and I hope you find somewhere to wear them too.

    I think that selling your "babies" as coat brooches is a wonderful idea! I hope it takes off for you too!

    Wrote a little something about you this morning too, on my blog. :)

  2. CinLynn, Thank you so much my dear friend...I already saw your post and commented. You and I are a bunch of dry-babies today!!! LOL

  3. What a lovely poem,one of your best,I think.
    How do you do it,find the words I mean,so clever!
    Jeanie x

  4. mythreebeez, Awwwww! Thank you so much!!...I find the words by living MY life!! Every word of my poems have some of me, my experiences, my observations, or some of people I know, in them. That's probably why I never tried to truly get them published. I'd be in knock down, drag out, fights with editors on every word of them!! Ha! Ha!

  5. Deb, every morning that I get up and moving the one thing I look forward to is reading your poems. More often than not your poem changes my attitude for the day and in a good way. I do read them every day some days I just can't comment. Thank you for todays poem I really needed it. I love all the crochet work you do to bad i'm always broke....LOL..... Have a good day.

  6. SnowflakeDreams1, Awwwww! Thank you so much for letting me know that you read my poems daily!!! That means a lot to me. We just had a meeting where we discussed how we honor one another. One of the things the article we studied mentioned was to honor someone with your time. To let someone know that they are valuable to you by your stopping from doing whatever you were doing to give them your time...That's what you do for me, and I am truly thankful...and feel honored. ;'_';

  7. everything looks so lovely xxxx

  8. Kirstyb, Awww! thank you! :-)

  9. Thanks for posting this poem today. Yes, there is a lot to be positive for :)

  10. Your positive attitude is just bursting through in that sweet poem! I feel very much the same each day I go to work in the operating matter how I might feel, the person on that table is feeling a lot worse. I love the broaches..the green in that butterfly is so lovely! Good job! And congrats on your beautiful that's something to be positive about!

  11. Jo-anne, I NEEDED to post that poem yesterday. And today I need it EVEN MORE!!! You'll see when you see today's post...if I ever get it up! LOL ... And thank you for liking my crocheted necklace! Mmuah!! :-)

  12. yaya, Yep! You are in my former profession. maybe that's where this attitude was fueled! Taking care of people at their worst can make you more thankful I think....And thank you for all of the encouragement with my crochet flowers, win, and poetry. I appreciate it very much! :-)
