Accentuate the Positive

Today I received updated pictures of Ford and Morgan. What a delight to get something other than bills, political propaganda and catalogs in the mail. I smiled with delight at the sight of their sweet faces and felt good that Molly remembered me so thoughtfully. So this is for you, Molly, thank you for always calling to share your good news! I love hearing about the things the children are doing and remarkable things they say. I loved hearing about surprise encounters with those who touch your life and those who feel comfortable to park in your driveway. :)

Terr got an email from Mike about Joe's great game last week end. He enjoyed sharing every detail with me, including telling me what a good job Mike is doing as defensive coach! Kim called today after a conference with Emily's teachers and shared her glowing report. Kate called yesterday after a positive interview experience. Mary, Kristin and Shannon call every now and then just to check in and talk about what is going on with their families (and of course to ask about us).

I guess what I'm saying is that it is a treasure in this world of bad news, to have family and friends reinforcing the fact that life is good and moving upward. Never hesitate to share that fact with all those you meet. I know it makes me feel so fortunate and rich...even in a "bare" market. So, keep spreading your goodness. You're making the world a better place. (It's so easy to talk about the children, but I know you guys are all doing a remarkable job at home as well as you chosen professions. Bravo!!)

My My! Morgan looks like she became a New York model while
on her trip.
Good to see Ford and Morgan.
