(At least) 100 Good Things

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

1. When I woke up this morning I felt peaceful as though something had washed over me
2. Birds singing outside was the first thing I heard
3. I had great dreams last night
4. Today looks as if it will be a slightly overcast, cool day
5. Weather permitting, I will go shooting (i.e. video) later
6. I still have some work to do but the bulk of it is finished, so I feel freer to do my own projects after
7. Yesterday I put money in my savings and didn't feel a sense of financial depletion
8. I am alive and well
9. My family, pets and friends are alive and well
10. I feel that despite some "negative" things that seem to be happening around us lately, there are many more positives
*
Feel free to continue listing (in the comments section).
Put as little or as many as you want (personal or generic).
Number them, following on from where the last person left off (e.g. after my #10, the next "good thing" will be #11 and so on) ... until we have at least 100

No matter how alone I may feel, I know none of us have really ever had the pleasure of the intamacy of true loneliness....whether we are able to feel them or not, the Angels will never let true loneliness touch us.

I went to a concert last night (to videotape it for a friend). It was Voices of Baha' - the worldwide Bahai choir. They sounded fantastic - especially the voice of one girl who did a solo with such passion. Don't think I've ever heard a voice like that.
