Well, the Negatonians among us often seem to have 364 days a year to themselves, so why not one day for the Positonians. Welcome to Positive Day, which is the brain child of Jennifer’s Diva Daughter over on Dust Bunny Hostage.
I’ve been thinking a lot these past few years of all the positive things that have happened in my life. Here are just a few:
I was lucky enough to be born on a farm to parents who loved me and showed by example the rewards of hard work extended over time. You don’t get there in a day.
I was lucky enough to get a good education by people who cared about teaching and who weren’t afraid to question without closing their minds to any potential answer.
I was lucky that I discovered reading early because books have become a major pillar of my adult life.
I was lucky enough to get a job that suited me in a place that I wanted, and to be able to keep that job despite plenty of turmoil and obstacles.
I was lucky enough for the world to conspire to present me with a son named Joshua at the exact time I was most ready to love him. Even if I didn’t realize it was that time.
I was lucky to find at least a few other people who like to hear the kinds of stories I like to tell.
I was lucky enough to find Lana at a time when I was close to going insane and traveling to a place where I might not have come back from.
I am lucky today to have love and be able to give love.
And let’s don’t forget. I’m lucky enough to have today off!
