Positively Things I'm Loving Right Now!

       I made the mistake this morning of getting up and turning on the television. I did it to catch the weather, but I had to wait out the local news first...*sigh*...home invasions...lots of guns being stolen...people going crazy over the Powerball lottery...dangerous bacteria on pork...roll-over car accidents...etc. AARGH!!!!...Off went the television!...after I found out that no more 'snow' is due to come today. :-)
       We didn't really have any 'snow', per se, anyway! I mean, it 'did' snow...and it snowed ALL DAY too, but there was no accumulative snow on the ground! Not a bit! :-) I guess the ground was too warm for it to stick...YAY! I wasn't ready to watch my backyard covered with snow yet anyway! :-]
       What I 'am' enjoying in my backyard these watching the slew of different birds I'm getting now, with all of their different 'bird music'...chirp songs! :-) The suet cage near the tree is the gift from my girlfriend that keeps on giving! :-)
      The birds will keep me in a good...positive...mood. That's what I'm working on this week. Being positive! :-) ... Actually, I'm usually pretty positive anyway, but I've noticed lately that so many 'not so good' things are happening around me...and TO me!...friends getting serious illnesses...deaths...loss of stress...pain!...that my 'positive' is taking a hit!! I'm having to REALLY work at it now!!
      When I was studying some of my 'Watchtower' magazine yesterday, for my meeting Sunday, it reminded me of something that was very encouraging for me. It said: "...God's word tells us: "A joyful heart has a good effect on the countenance..." (Prov. 15:13) Medical researchers have long recognized the curative value of positive thinking..."
       It also reminded me of the scripture at Proverbs 24:10 that says: "Have you shown yourself discouraged in the day of distress? Your power will be scanty."...Soooooo true! And I needed reminding!!....Okay, Bible lesson over!! ^_^ ...That wasn't for YOU anyway. That was for ME!!! :-] Forward!......Positive!
        Okay, changing gears...but still keeping it positive! :-) ...I wanna show you a few of the things I'm loving right now! They're from shops on Etsy. Shops that I 'have been', or am, keeping my eye on!...

      So, there you go. They're all 'positively' beautiful, aren't they?! :-)

      Okay, I'm off to finish my breakfast and get some crocheting done. Have a 'positively' wonderful 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. Wonderful thank you so much !!

  2. when the weather turns dull and light starts to fade early i think its easy to get into the doledrums but focusing on the good things and being positive is the key ;-) Love that red scarf very pretty and my friend Vicky would love that owl she has a thing for those. Have a great day, dee x

    1. You're right, Dee! But unfortunately it's not just the weather that's the problem! ^_^ There's so many things that can cause the duldrums!!...But a little bit of brain power in the right direction and....BAM!!! Positivity just oozes out of you! ^_^ ...By the way, I have a sister whose into owls too!..Enjoyed your post too...Pretty, pretty! :-) Have a good day!

  3. I loved that point in the Watchtower myself! So encouraging! We really all need to work hard at being positive these days because of the stress. I look forward to a time, very soon now, when that stress will be gone!! Hang in there, my friend!!

    And thanks so much for showcasing my earrings! I love those!!

    1. It was very encouraging, wasn't it?! I look forward to going over it again on Sunday! :-) And I'm gonna keep on working on the positive thing too! It'll get much easier when I'm perfect though!! ^_^
