Okay, I for one have been having myself a little pity party the last few days, and I'm sick and tired of it. I'm ready to get out of myself and think of the many good things that I have to be thankful for. In other words, I'm tired of seeing the glass half empty....I'm ready to start seeing it half full again....

Can anyone else write something on the subject? I challenge you all to write something about the glass being  HALF  FULL  and not  HALF  EMPTY, and posting it in Open 27 so I'll be sure to see it. Okay, everybody??

Thanks ya'll. I need this right now!!

I said I'm going to buy a gun and start a war,
If you can tell me something worth fighting for

It's in open. I guess if you think it's worth reading... who am I kidding?

I get upset with meself when I want to indulge in a pity party - inviting friends to join in is the best revenge...

I'll take your challenge!

Here you go, Ethel...

Not for the Sake….

I’m just that way…

I don’t care to argue,
but I also don’t
care for disease, depression,
self-pity, pitiful faces,
grumblers, mumblers,
or anyone or thing that may leave
one feeling
flat.

So, not for the sake
of argument, just know
that you’ve been forewarned,
and realize
that I will always try to see
the sunny-side up
of things,
that line of silver
even when the clouds
haven’t shown up yet,
feel Christmas should be
every day,
that a smile will always
leave one feeling you are
beautiful,

that you ARE God’s Gift…

and that thing
about a glass being half-full
or half-empty?  

Well, my glass, even if it only has
a drop in it,
will never be empty…

and what’s keeping Me
from filling it back up,
anyway?
