    A man at the gas station ask me, have you had a good day today? He said, if his days were good then his nights generally were bad. I said," that's not good" half in sympathy, half in doubt. Sucks to be him if he wasn't lying.
    But he did get me asking myself if it had been a good day ...........
    The bills are payed and the Banker did not call asking for the house.
    I did not lay in bed all day in agony
    My Uncle's has been shot but to my knowledge no one is gunning for me.
    No one has called and said someone is dead.
    I have no boss to report too.
    I'm not alone.
    The car, the air conditioner, the refrigerator, the computer and the toilet all work.
    I think it’s a good day!
    Have you had a good day?

    I am convinced that counting our blessings makes us happier :)

    My day is going great. I am blessed beyond measure. God is good.

    I guess it's a good day. It's dark here this morning, and I'm hiding upstairs on my bed while DH and mother in law make breakfast for the kids. I'm generally not a social person until at least 10am. the kids are excited that she is here, and even more excited about the temporary sleeping arrangements. Our oldest is sharing his room with Grammy, his little brother is sleeping upstairs with us. Unfortunately this is the child who thinks he is a raccoon, and him and all his stuffed raccoons (toys not real ones LOL) were up past midnight talking and playing jokes on us.
    It's the 5th of the month which means we once again have food stamps-which is nice because I was getting really tired of eating the same thing every day. Sucks being poor, but the least the government can do is help me eat. I used to feel badly about being on food stamps but crap like this helped me to stop feeling guilty about it. Material girl Michelle Obama is a modern-day Marie Antoinette on a glitzy Spanish vacation

    Once I have some coffee, it will be a much better day. :flower:

    Hmmm.... I think I will have a crappy day today. Why should I always have a good day?

    I have decided to not be selfish and will pass my good day on to someone who really needs it. I can handle a crappy day once in a while, and I will feel better knowing that someone else out there who probably really needs it is enjoying my good day. :thankyou:

    OFM, you said, " I used to feel badly about being on food stamps but crap like this helped me to stop feeling guilty about it. Material girl Michelle Obama is a modern-day Marie Antoinette on a glitzy Spanish vacation"

    Ummm, what does that socialist, elitist bit&h Michelle Obama waisting my tax dollars have to do with me and other taxpayers having to pay to feed your family?

    You also said, "Sucks being poor, but the least the government can do is help me eat." A brief civics lesson, OFM..........The government doesn't feed you. I do, as well as every other taxpayer. That's because the government can give to some only by taking from others.

    My back kills me from all the hours in my garden and out foraging for food, and this fall I'll be slaving over canners, putting up venison and fish. Sometimes I wish I could just go to the store and buy stuff like everyone else, but we're very financially-challenged (I don't have the mentality that we're "poor").

    But I'll be darned if I'd have my hands out for anything from the goverment. Funny how so many people gripe about the deficit and the bail-outs/stimulus funding...but have their hands out for whatever they can get.

    How can people feel so ENTITLED? It's one thing to actually NEED the help, but to feel justified and entitled? :scratch

    gypsysue, you and MMM and my wife and I are so much alike.

    You said, "But I'll be darned if I'd have my hands out for anything from the goverment." THAT is the spirit that made America the greatest nation on earth, and the politicians who pander to the entitlement mentality and those who suck off it without dire need are turning our beloved America into a 3rd world nation. Sad. Very sad.
