Therapy Thursday ~ The Bright Side of Life

When I was in junior high, I had a friend who would come up to me and say "I have such good news!" And she'd be jumping up and down and I'd get all excited, but before I could ask her what the good news was she'd blurt out "I made the high honor roll!!!" Wow. That was great news for me, a struggling B student who didn't even know there was a high honor roll. This friend loved to share her good news. It bordered on showing off, and I learned to put up with it. But there's something to be said for sharing good news. It can be a day brightener for the person sharing and for the person listening. There's a local radio guy who, on Fridays, has people call in with their good news. It could be something as simple as their kid passing their driving test after three tries, to something as wonderful as finishing chemo. It's really a nice segment, aptly called "The Bright Side of Life." It's fun to hear everyone's good news, be it big or small. It's all good.

Today I woke up to a bright, sunny day and could hear the birds chirping, and I felt like it would be a good day to share good news. So I'd love it if you left a comment about what's good in your life at the moment. I'll start:

I'm almost done vacuuming the house, and when I'm done I'm going to make beads. :o) Oh, and I figured out how to listen to something besides Jersey Boys on my iPod. I love the Jersey Boys soundtrack, and for a while it was all I would or could listen to because my iPod was stuck on it. But now I've got access to all the other albums on there. Yay me!


  1. Congrats on getting your ipod unstuck!

    I get to make beads today too! That always makes for a good day!

  2. Great News: a new episode of Project Runway is on tonight! : )

  3. That IS great news! I may not have time to torch with all this excellent tv to watch. :o)

  4. Congrats on figuring out the iPod lol.

    Good things about my day.. hmm. I might get to bed early tonight, that's good news for me. :) My daughter isn't throwing up anymore like she was last night. That's even better news!


  5. I had an interview for a promotion and I feel pretty good about it...

  6. I made a bracelet with a patient in the hospital 3 weeks when I went in to work with her again she was wearing it : )

  7. Sadie - a throw-up free kid is always good news!

    Katy - congrats! I hope you get it!

    Kathy - that's what I'm talking about - nice!

    It's the little things. :o)
