Feel Good Friday

Mama said there'd be days like this...

Mama said there’d be days like this…

On Fridays, I post about positive news.

Honestly, today I’m just happy to be back from the dead, so to speak.  I haven’t had the flu in a very, very long time, and I can tell you– I didn’t miss it.  Wow, for three days, I just kind of laid on the couch, sleeping and not doing much else.  Well, I read, but for me, that’s like saying “I breathed.”

But never fear!  In between all the coughing and Motrin and gripping my head in pain, I still managed to find positive news stories for your Feel Good Friday enjoyment.

In Philadelphia, at Rosa’s Pizza, homeless people can go for a free meal.  It all started when a customer asked to buy a slice of pizza for someone who couldn’t afford one, and it started a major trend.  Because of the generosity of others, 30-40 people a day get to eat.  Super cool.

Asia, a Great Dane, foiled two burglary attempts in one week and ended up being partly responsible for four arrests.  She’s getting honored by Austin police.  Good doggie!

A woman in Mexico City rescues an injured dog stranded in the middle of the highway.  This is (scary) video of a woman crossing traffic and coaxing the dog to come to her.  Even though I knew it had a happy ending, my heart still leaped into my throat when the dog started to run away from her.

So, the thought of the day for your Feel Good Friday is this:

“Gratitude is an art of painting an adversity into a lovely picture.”

    What great news – it left a huge smile on my face. Thanks for circulating the positive news. 🙂 And what am I thankful for? Hard to narrow it down, but I’m truly grateful for the health of our family.

    I love that you focus on the positive and I love the news stories you shared! How great is it when you read a story like the pizza place because it is a testament to how contagious gratitude and giving is. Not only that but I have found joy in both gratitude and giving…. not just happiness. I find happiness is fleeting and joy really sticks with you!

    I am grateful for my husband. He is truly one in a million.

    Thank you for sharing. I am going to try and stop by every Friday for some postive-ness before the weekend. 🙂
