    This is where you post about those recent golden moments. It can be a child's hug, a hard exam passed, getting married, a simple word or act that warmed your heart. Essentially something positive that you have observed/have happened to you lately.

    I'm not really looking for big events here, although they also go in here. I mostly want you all to think about little things in your everyday life (like 2 weeks back or something, not farther, preferably you'd post one good thing a day :D), that is nice and positive. Most people do that way to little in their everyday life.


    I know I did this exercise with a kids group I had for a few weeks. And they couldn't think of anything positive and nice in their everyday life. Thats just sad. And which is why its good to start thinking about the little things :)



    I'll start it up; When my brother got a long awaited and wanted letter yesterday, and his eyes lit up like a childs eyes on christmas.

    Great idea Em :)

    My kids have these ridiculous toys called "chatimals" that record stuff they say and then play it back chipmunk-style. This morning I was saying goodbye to my son as he went to leave to catch his bus and the darn chatimal recorded my goodbye and spit it back out at us. We didn't know it was recording so we both laughed like crazy. :)

    I won a game of Words With Friends yesterday. That was rather pleasant. :)

    It seems like an article I wrote for one of my classes will be published in a serious linguistic magazine : O

    :D Awesome, congrats!

    I got to see a teenage guy act in a chivalrous manner towards his lady friend. Seeing that sort of thing is still around and not what I normally see was heart-warming to me.
    Compliments from the boss were nice.
    Not exactly recently, but noticed how great double-cheeseburgers from BK are when freshly heated. The best part about that particular job.
    The feeling of being fresh out of the shower after a long day
    The feeling of sitting or laying in bed after a long day
    Boss making cookies for everyone with the cookie dough for an item that never came on the menu.
    Working in place where like-minded people can have religious and political discussions without hostility.
    General friendliness and cooperative attitude at work.
    Having my co-worker act as part of the team (the one flaw at work is that we really don't act like a team) and stay till the job was done. This one is common with him though, good guy.
    There's this one little girl at church that always hugs everyone during the socializing part of service.
    Hearing the millions of questions the middle and high school kids ask during Sunday School. Now only if I could answer all of them...

    I discovered a new TV show that I love. May not be a big deal to some but I'm freaking excited.

    Congrats Oddy!


    I got a gift certificate to go and see a movie from my boss today, and then I got a nice hug from a client that I met for the first time today.

    Sounds like you had a marvellous time there, Em. :)

    I'm about to have a golden time too... once I pick up that shiny new console this morning. That long, LONG wait is finally over! YAY!

    Today the clouds parted and I saw sunshine for the first time in... what, 3 weeks?
    Literally, I am talking about sunshine.
    And it was my golden moment. It's kinda creepy how sunshine can influence your mood so much

    I love when that happens! And the sunshine can do so much. During the spring when the sun comes out it's like happiness itself is shining down on me.




    My golden moment for today.. hmm.. All the huggy and caring classmates I have. Gonna miss them when we graduate this spring.

    Yesterday my lizard tried to go to sleep by burying under my neck. It was spiky and painful but SO cute!
