Half Full Friday! June 11th, 2010

Half Full Friday is a series of weekly posts that Eye Girl originally started in June 2009.

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.

"Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day." ~ Author Unknown

We are determined to find the something good in every day.  Are you?

For the next week, we challenge you to keep a list of at least one thing that brought you happiness each day. On Friday, write your own Half Full Friday post and return to Life As Eye See It to link your post and to see what other bloggers found happiness in during the past week.

Don't forget to grab a Half Full Friday Banner or Button for your blog post if you are going to join in:

This is my second time joining Half Full Friday and here is what I'm Happy for this week:
  • I am happy that I got to see all 3 of my sons last week!
  • I am happy that I got to visit my middle son in Chicago last weekend! 
  • I am happy that my oldest son took care of everything for me at home (2 dogs, a cat and a house showing) so that I could go!
  • I am happy that I got to spend the weekend with one of my favorite friends! 
  • I am happy that I got everyone to and from Chicago safely last weekend!
  • I am happy that the lock-smith was able to get me a new key for my car. :-P
  • I am happy that my youngest son went with us and had a Great time in Chicago! 
  • I am happy that my sons are so patient, kind and understand me so well. :-)
Have a Great weekend, Everyone!
Love & Hugs Always my Friends,
