Taking It Personally... The Good & The Bad News

I personalize things allot. In fact, I know that I am super sensitive.... Maybe even over sensitive. I've been mourning tragic events & reminders all weekend long.

But I do realize for every mournful or negative story I reminisce on, there are far Better stories to think of as well...

It's a shame that I had to work so hard to find these feel good/good news stories in the mainstream media.. But then again, it lifted my mood from the constant doom & gloom of the so-called 'news'.

I am committing one day every week to finding & listed Good News Reports... NO, I don't expect you to read them all in one sitting.. but come back to sneak a peek..... You just might be presently surprised.... I was!

I'm glad you found some *good* news to help balance out the bad. My heart goes out to Jennifer and her family as well.

I heard about the woman that bought back the house for the woman that had lost it. What a Random Act of Kindness THAT was!

Ahhhh, PS If anyone reading this would like to purchase a single mother and her son a home or pay the rent up for a few months . . . well, all I'm saying is . . .
