Sharing joy and happy news
« on: February 10, 2008, 06:27:18 AM »
I have a need for a thread to share happy news with my forum friends.
To talk about the things in life that makes us happy.
Small things in everyday life or important happy changes....

Hey Mia!  What a great idea for a thread!  We could use some happy thoughts and news after all the rough times lately.

Here's some happiness from me!

And my nieces.



You've already seen pictures of Earl, who is also a source of great joy.

Wonderful that you're getting more daylight, Marleen.

I went to the park yesterday.  It closes at sundown.  I noticed that at 5 PM, the sun was still high in the western sky, and it was still light when I got home at 6 PM.

What a great thread!  I was a little bitchy on another one today because I was getting tired of some of the stuff that I was reading so I am happy to be here!

Yes, it's staying light longer and today when I went out the snow was melting and the sun was shining!!

I'm gonna try to figure out this picture posting thing.

Oh yes (((((((((( Debbie ))))))))) it's so good the daylight is returning.

This Friday I saw on the news we had nearly half an hour more daylight in just one week.

That's a lot.

I just have to tell this because I am so happy.

Yesterday my son and daughter in law came here to tell me a 7-week old embryo of a grandchild is growing!!!!

It’s not official yet, as they want to wait a few more weeks, just in case something goes wrong, so I can’t tell my friends or relatives yet. But just the thought makes me so happy I can’t hold it in, have to share it.

No matter what it is a little miracle that just started to grow. I decided to allow myself to be happy about the news. If sad things would happen it wouldn't help if I held my joy back now.

Just the thought of  being blessed with a grandchild in September makes me the happiest woman on earth.
