1) New guy suggested a Craig's List ad might unearth someone to cut up and take our tree.  20 minutes after posting the ad, a fellow with more time than money had offered to do just that so he could heat his house with the wood this winter.  Win-win.

2) Boss let me go home early. 

3) Maxine the simple cat has had her territory extended to include the whole house, and has only one time urinated on the floor to protest a dirty litter box.  My bad.

1. My friend for taking Boo all afternoon to play with her kids and hosting a bbq dinner to.

2. I'm glad for my nice customers all day.

3. I'm glad i watched a nice, albeit sad movie on tv while relaxing this evening.
I have a daughter named Boo, a dog called Stick, and a truck named Zane Grey. My neighbors think I am nuts when they hear me yell Boo and Stick get in Zane.

I believe these "three good things" threads are very important.  We all need to recognize the silver lining. 

1.  I woke up at 6:30 and had the dogs walked by 8 am.  (Florida - the only "cool" time is around dawn). 
2.  My bf works 2nd shift and sleeps late, but while he was asleep I went to Lowe's and got more landacape fabric and staples.  I was working in the yard before he even woke up.  :)
3. We had grilled shrimp wrapped in bacon!  And grilled pineapple!  YAY!!!  :)

1. My Boo for her hugs and kisses.
2. The nice guys who are tearing down my old fence and replacing it with a nice new one.
3. The new tires on my jeep.

1. Great friends invited us to spend a week at the shore.

2. First tooth made its appearance today- quite exciting!

3. We shared a pretty special bottle of wine, and even more special time together, breathing in salty air, feeling its comforting touch on the skin and healing the heart.

I did not think people can surprise me anymore, not at a point when can develop meaningful friendships easily; these guys are pretty amazing!

1. Today was better than yesterday, which was rather rough.

2. My daughter practiced and practiced, got it great this morning, tied her own shoelaces with no help from the old guy.

3. My Dad called tonight, and we had a great talk...he told me that he was proud  to call me his son.

My application to the shelter reached the top of the pile.

I'm now a foster mom of three kittens.  That's three good things, right?

Had a nice day with a mixture of things to do so no time to get bored for sure.

While away working for a few hours I came home to a very excited child that had fancy nails done, surprise to me and her.

My jeep is washed yay because a very nice person washed it for me today.

Another school year.
1.  My boys liked teachers, connected with friends they hadn't seen all summer, and were up and ready on their own.
2.  I'm so thankful to be starting year 2 in a job I love.
3.  Best summer in years.  No vacation, no trips, but accomplished goals set in June.

I think this thread could use a bump. I've been struggling with some seriously negative feelings as of late- time to get back into the gratitude habit.

1. It is a beautiful cool, sunny day and- thanks to modern technology- I am on the porch enjoying it while also on the Internet! Yes, I know, I should be weeding instead...

2. I spent yesterday with an old friend I haven't seen for several years. It was really lovely spending time with her and her young son.

3. I'm so grateful I eventually got my love of baking back as it soothes my soul like nothing else.
It is a fearful thing to love what Death can touch.
