    It's not about what you have in your

    pocket that makes you thankful, but what you have in your heart.

    I Have So Much to Be Thankful For

    I have been through some hard times in the past few years. I won't go into too much detail, but I was caught up in a violent relationship with the father of my baby girl. When I finally found the courage to leave him and go it alone, the money worries started. I just didn't have...

    Sometimes We Need a Wake-up Call

    I just spoke to my neighbor. We're friendly but he and his wife are quiet...not the come in for a cup of coffee types. And that's fine. I've always respected that. We waved at each other and something told me to just go over and say hello. He started crying...told me his 10 year...

    Occasionally there are people out in the world

    Gratefulness Is a Way to Get High

    It seems the more you are grateful and thankful, more positive experiences happen to you.  At least that is what I've found.  If we can see the joy in diversity, it helps bring us out of it sooner than if we allowed our diversity to sink into the mire of sadness and...

    On the first day of one of my classes this

    semester, I was waiting outside the hallway before class and saw a guy go into the class. I randomly thought "I am going to make friends with him" even though we had never met before. I don't know why I felt drawn to him. Sometimes I am just drawn to people. So in class I sat...

    I am thankful for my good friend Monica.

    She always puts a smile on my face when others put a frown. I just wish she would visit more often. I get she stays like 1 state away but that never stopped her

    It's been a while, I lost someone forever.

    And I thought it was the end of the world. But then after more than two months now, I realised that person wasn't really a good friend. They lied, and they only cared about their feelings and their needs. I was so blind to see that because I was a good friend. Now I'm not sad...

    My best friend almost lost his life today.

    But he was rescued at sea, and he is alive. His boat is gone. I am glad I will not be giving an Eulogy; but instead a warm embrace.
