"Become a possibilitarian. No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are, raise your sights and see possibilities - always see them, for they're always there." ~Norman Vincent PealeHalf Full Friday is a series of weekly posts that Eye Girl originally started in June 2009. Now the it is hosted by Sprinkles at Wyldechylde. We believe that a lot of our happiness is determined by our attitude about the things that happen to us. So by participating, we are deciding to see the glass as half full, instead of half empty. We are choosing to concentrate on the positives, instead of dwelling on the negatives. Our Half Full Friday posts are a way to do just that. They are a list of the things in our life that have brought us happiness over the past week. We are determined to find the something good in every day. Are you?
"A happy thought is like a seed that sows positivity for all to reap." ~Miriam Muhammad
I'm Happy and Thankful for many things; especially this week:
- For my oldest son's trip to the Dominican Republic with a medical team from his school. They leave tomorrow morning for a month. Please pray they have a SAFE and Inspiring time there! :-)
- For the phone calls asking about my house that's for sale. It's a start and I feel that it takes 'word of mouth' to sell a house in a small town! :-)
- For the wonderful birthday dinner for my youngest son last week! :-)

"There are souls in this world which have the gift of finding joy everywhere and of leaving it behind them when they go." ~Frederick FaberMy question: What is a favorite birthday memory?
My answer: My friends back home gave me a surprise birthday party a few years back. Complete with a Great local band! I was VERY Surprised and LATE... because I was at a regional track meet with my middle son, that was running very late. I was Surprised and Happy that everyone waited for me! I love those people!! :-)
