Positive Day is Born!

I'm joining others this day to celebrate Positive Day!
Jennifer over at Dust Bunny Hostage is one of those Mom's who thinks outside the box...and encourages her kids to do the same! She opened up the blank page of her blog recently to Diva Daughter (her 12 year old) to give an accurate review of the latest Harry Potter movie. It seems the Wall Steet Journal had given a bad review, filled with negativity. Her daughters's zeal and enthusiam was an excellent time to encourage her to express HER feelings. After all, the movie makers are very interested (or should be) in what Diva Daughter has to say. She said when she becomes President in 2032, she will instate Positive Day...a day for people to think about the things they are thankful for and to share the things that make them happy. Positive Day was born from the mind of a twelve year old girl. So, here goes. These are the things that I consider to be positively wonderful!


Family~Past and Present!


The sound of children playing!


Patriotism!


Freedom of Speech!


Home!

Good News in the Mailbox!


Freedom to Worship

A good old thunderstorm!

The beauty of nature!

Our spirit of ingenuity and self-reliance is still alive and well in America!
When Americans are forced to rely on themselves, their neighbors and their communities for support, we rediscover what makes America so great!

  2. Yeah for positive day!! Bless this girl's heart. I too participated as I thought it was worthy cause. When she is president, we will have memories to share when we are standing in voting lines.

  3. Thank you so much for participating! This post was so straight forward and powerful (and timely - we are having a thunderstorm as I type this).

    You know, I am a flip flop kind of girl. I rarely dress up. But when I looked at that first photo I said "Oh! The shoes!" I guess there is a bit of girly girl in there somewhere :)

    Again, I appreciate you so much for being a part of Positive Day!
