I am feeling so good, happy and just blessed lately and it's hard to explain how much that means to me after a several years of gloom. At the end of the day I think it's nice to look back on the positive things that happened that made your day, and also to share in the joy of others. Whatever it is, big, small and simple, funny, whatever....let's end the day by sharing some hidden treasures 😊 Positivity can be contagious and healthy πŸ˜‰βœ¨

It's always good seeing posts from you missy! 😘 Let's see, something that made me smile was from the other day. As most of you know lil chica is hearing impaired and has been in school for a few months now where she gets speech therapy. We were sitting on the couch the other day and I heard her quietly sing her version of Twinkle Twinkle little star, "Winkle, winkle, litto staw." I started to cry out of joy and being so proud of her. So many of you have been there for my family and I since she was diagnosed, I had to share with you all. ❀ - LBChica  2437.4 #59 10:04PM

So glad you're doing well!! We had a horrible start to 2012...and out of that time I realized that for me the hidden treasures everyday are the simple things in life that matter most! I am now grateful for the hard times b/c it put everything in perspective for me and I am now able to find my own hidden treasures each new day! Today it was that my 3 y/o swam by himself for the first time! 😊 - MinnieMousewife  914.1 #201 10:01PM

That's awesome! πŸ‘ - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 10:34PM
Your positivity is awesome SIC! Many know that I've moved back to the bay area while my husband is still down here until October. I've been able to spend the last three days down here with him, with one more to go, and we got to experience CarsLand together for the first time. That may sound silly and frivolous, but the laughter and smiles we've shared together the last few days will help tide us over until our next visit. And I'm grateful for that 😊 - DaisyBell  695.5 #282 10:39PM
Not frivolous at all, time spent together like that (whatever it is that we enjoy doing together), I think is what life is all about. Those are memories we will have forever. It was so fun to see you guys in the parks together again! I'm sure it bet kicking a tag around with us, by a long shot! πŸ˜‚ - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 10:44PM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ He still talks about that tag!! He had such a great time with you guys, I appreciate you keeping him company in my absence 😊 - DaisyBell  695.5 #282 10:51PM
I'm glad we got to hang out with you - MimiMouse  1049.0 #173 11:24PM
My oldest daughter Allison was diagnosed with EDS.  It's basically a syndrome that affects her muscles.  She started physical therapy at Choc about a year and a half ago.  She couldn't run or jump.  Now she can jump and is getting better at running. I always smile when I see her jumping or running either at home or around DL.  She loves MW and I know that MW loves her.  I also get a smile on my face when so many MWers tell me how my girls make them smile.   - Sandcar13  1408.2 #122 2:10AM
That is so wonderful!! Yay for her :D - misschurro  6362.1 #17 6:54AM
So glad she's doing well! - LBChica  2437.4 #59 7:35AM
She's a dang good dancer, too. I enjoyed twirling with her at the T-Party. - LaneSparrow316  847.0 #218 8:54AM
Although not life threatening my youngest daughter was born with a defect called congenital cataract. She could see absolutely nothing and we found this out at her two month appointment. At three months old they did surgery up in Portland to remove her lenses out of both eyes. She then a week later started wearing contacts with a 29 magnification (a normal magnifying glass is a 4 magnification to give you an idea). The power of contacts has gradually gone down and a three years old she started wearing bifocal glasses as well as contacts. She is now six and a half and is working on reading slowly. I'm amazed with her. She will always have to wear the correction but that's a small thing when it comes to vision. Watching her run up to Minnie mouse on her first trip when she was two was an awsome experience. Thank you to everyone has shared something πŸ˜„ - Tinkerbellmom4  440.2 #497 6:20AM
I've struggled off and on my whole life! So I totally get this! It's tuff to sometimes take you head out of the sand and look up an see what you really have! It took me meeting my now bf of almost 5 years to teach me to relax be thankful for what I have and try not to take things personally or take on other peoples problems! Through him I have learned how to be a better me! Life is always getting better and always be thankful that you are Breathing and alive to enjoy it! It's those simple thoughts that help make a difference!!! Everyone on here is so wonderful and up lifting that any trials I may have I know there is someone worse off and that makes me think life could always be worse!!! Wear a smile everyday it's your best accessory!! πŸ˜ƒ - CourtyAstroBlisters  784.0 #236 10:40PM
Ah, I LOVE this and couldnt have said it better myself. I know first hand it's not always easy to see beyond the gray, but it's so important to try. You are blessed to have met him. 😊 - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 10:46PM

After four days I finally got to see and spend time with my son! That alone made my day super bright. Sharing our son was SOoooooo hard at first, I would cry missing him, I've gotten to appreciate the extra ME time that many other moms don't get, and to enjoy being a mom when I get my chance to be with him. - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #26 11:43PM
Anyone can see you're an amazing mom Marsha, he's so lucky to have you 😊 - LBChica  2437.4 #59 11:44PM
Thank you, sometimes it's easy to start to think that I'm not since I don't see or have him everyday. - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #26 11:55PM
You are a wonderful parent. We can see the joy that you and your son have together. Thank you for sharing that joy with us - Tealtownfan  1015.6 #184 6:37AM
Let me tell you that just from what I have seen and read here on MW, you seem like such a great person and wonderful mom. It must be difficult at times, but your son will grow up and appreciate that time he has with you and all you have taught him. - Sharkgrrl19  255.2 #1299 8:40AM
A little over a year and a half ago my nephew was born. Unbeknownst to us (and doctors) he was born without his left diaphragm (the muscle under your lungs). This muscle also acts as a barrier between organs and the chest cavity and many children die because of this defect. He was immediately rushed to ICU and the first time I saw him he was sedated with tubes everywhere. He had surgery at 4 days old where the doctors put in a prosthetic that basically keeps the lower organs away from the chest cavity. Since then, every day I get to spend with him makes me feel blessed!! Through other trials and struggles in life, I think of how amazing he is and what he went through. When I'm feeling down, I simply walk through the door and see him smile at me and know that life is good. - LilSterner  5455.2 #20 12:19AM
I have a cousin who also had to go under the knife almost right after being born. He was born with a disease (I can't remember the name) but the doctors basically had to remove about 55-60% of his colon. From the time he came home, until he was potty trained, all of his waste went into a bag that was attached to his stomach. And as if that wasn't the worst of it, because there was so much anesthesia in his system at such a young age, he became autistic. It broke my heart seeing a little 5 year old, who couldn't talk, and couldn't go to the bathroom. Luckily now, he is 13 years old, and, thanks to years of intense therapy, he seems, for lack of a better word, normal! He is even beginning to act like a teenager (cracking voice, attitude, checking out girls) I am not religious, but I do believe that there is someone watching out over us, and I consider myself, and my family, blessed to have my cousin the way he is. He has brought us closer together than we ever could imagine. Life is a gift, cherish it. - MrLeeFromDisney  263.7 #1226 12:43AM
I love this! Thank you for sharing! You have the sweetest spirit about you! Your pictures and posts bless me and, I'm sure, countless others!! Coming off of an amazing first trip back to our happy place and home away from home, I would have to say that once again, our MW Family is what blessed our socks off yesterday!!! We are continually amazed by the wonderful friends, and really family, that we have found here! The generosity leaves me speechless!! The stories of love and friendship warm my heart!!! Seeing encouraging posts like this is what makes others want to be a part of this amazing family!! - MrsPrinceCharming 8:27AM
It's true that sometimes when we have trials, we don't remember how lucky we are. Having a rough couple of years myself, I know what you mean when you find or experience things or people that can make you happy. That's one reason I love MW so much. It makes me forget the bad and replace it with such wonderful experiences and friendships. Every time I come on here I always have a smile on my face :) 😊 - caramiapoohluvsbb8  4088.5 #37 10:00PM
It's so true, I have found the same thing over the years. Coming on here and seeing the photos and genorosity of this community is just proof that there really is so much good out there, and it's amazing to see everyone come together for each other. 😊It was great to finally meet you, and I hope to see you again soon!! - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 10:17PM
So true Cara!! I'm so glad to have found a place that is so caring. I'm also glad to have met you!! - LilSterner  5455.2 #20 12:22AM

I wish I had lots to be happy about, but honestly it's been a rough week or two. My wife and kids are gone until the day after Aug 10th and it really sucks coming home from a job that I'm not thrilled with to an empty house and waking up to an empty house too. I'm hope I can turn this bit of depression around with some time with my MW friends Tues, weds and thurs. I am happy for you though SIC, I hope things keep going the direction they are and wish you the best going forward.😊 - Ricko19  818.1 #224 10:11PM

Things are crazy at my shop right now in ways that are both good and bad. Im stressed out. Decided to take some time off for the holiday before returning Friday. Spent the day with my father in law and my daughter. The next three days are with my family. Thursday I'm at the parks with my wife and daughter. It's nice to finally be able to relax for awhile. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 10:34PM

My honey and the kids are doing good! The kittied have not missbehaved. We had a great time at Glow with the Show on Saturday, thanks to the generosity of StarWarsLove! Met quite a few MWers! Had a nice lazy Sunday. Had a nice day at work today. It's not always easy so I like to appreciate all my blessings big and small. I am glad things are going good for you!!! - Boundin  711.7 #272 10:46PM
I don't know that it's supposed to be easy all the time or maybe even most of the time. The tough times teach us a lot and make the good days so much sweeter! Thanks for sharing. Pet a kitty for me, I miss having one. 😊 - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 10:50PM
You are right! If life was easy and there were no downs to go with the ups we would become complacent and not even know that things were good! Thank you for this post! With as many kitties as I have, I will pet 2 or 3 for you!!! LOL🐱🐱🐱🐱🐱🐱🐱🐱 - Boundin  711.7 #272 11:26PM
My grandma has been in and out of the hospital for the past month and its took a toll on me.

I'm sorry to hear that, my thoughts are with your grandma, you and your family. That is one of the best things about this community, that while hard times are inevitable, you can always count on good friends to lift you up. - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 10:53PM

Thank you for this! It's been a rough month, and have been trying to find the light at the end of he tunnel. Today I felt was a turning point, I've decided to not let my anxiety ruin my life.

I can never catch a break and it sucks.... Ugh on the bright side I'm glad I get to see my family at the end of the day! Nothing will ever replace them and I'm so happy to have made it out ok from Saturdays accident made me realize how important my life is and how fast it can be taken from you. Thank you all for the well wishes you guys mean a lot to me :) - PrinceTeaJack  934.6 #198 11:02PM
Glad to hear you're doing well, man. I've been in a few accidents and had a totaled car (none of which were my fault). It can be pretty scary and is a total eye opener. Gives you a new appreciation for things you often take for granted. Small blessing in disguise if you ask me😊. - ScubaSteve028  835.7 #220 11:10PM
Very true! It's crazy how you need it sometimes unfortunately to change your outlook on life - PrinceTeaJack  934.6 #198 11:12PM
Again, glad everything was ok. I don't blam you for being a little freeway shy after that too, I was the same after my accident. - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 11:19PM
I got into a pretty bad car accident at the beginning of this year but yes it's most definitely a wake up call that you are alive and that's all that matters. Cars can be replaced, lives can not. - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #233 12:25AM
I just saw that you were in a car accident. I had to go back and see your comments. I'm glad you are ok. Hang in there. - Sandcar13  1408.2 #122 2:21AM

Love positivity posts! I have been very blessed with a kind, amazing, wonderful boyfriend, who just came into my life out of nowhere and flipped it upside down. I know I may be young, but I have been in some pretty bad relationships that have torn me up and left me with all kinds of scars, and the past couple of months with josh have really made of for all my mistakes. He treats me like a princess, accepts me for me, his family is basically my own and the connection I have with them all is something I've only dreamt about(: I feel so safe and happy 24/7 and Ive never had this much trust in a person that he owns up to. We may be young and not have much money, but nights in watching movies and drinking root beer floats is as good as any date night out and I just feel so happy and blessed and I could go on for days but I'll stop here(: okay😍😍😍 - AvidDisneyThrifter220  1402.8 #125 11:09PM

I really haven't been this happy...in so long(: I mean, my last relationship ended in January...the week RIGHT after I took HIM to Disneyland his first time. He dumped me for another girl. That's just a taste of the jerks I've dated in my past. An I knew he was scum, I just didn't want to admit it kinda thing, ya know? - AvidDisneyThrifter220  1402.8 #125 11:38PM
Been there done that girl. lol I'm glad things are going well now, from what I've seen on FB and Instagram he seems like a really good guy. Good for you! ❀ - LBChica  2437.4 #59 7:34AM
My dad is at the end stage of cancer and my mom was recently diagnosed with dementia. They live in different states and each live over 1000 miles from me. I'm on a "road trip" with my daughter to see my mom, and then see my dad for what will probably be the last time. It's gut wrenching for me. I decided to take a detour and have a few "Disney-Days" on the way. We've come across some wonderful people the last couple of days and it's helping take the edge off what we're about to deal with. - cafe1989  10.1 #10924 11:27PM

Your journey seems so difficult, may you continue to find the love and support you need from us. I'm wishing you the strength to get through it all and the time to enjoy the life you have now! May life look brighter and more beautiful in your hard times. - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #26 11:36PM
My father died from cancer five years ago. It really messed me up for awhile afterwards. I always wish he was still around to see the granddaughter he never met. Losing a parent is so hard. Be strong and remember the good times. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 11:58PM
My heart goes out to you. There's nothing harder than seeing your parents sick. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I'm glad you took Disney time to gain strength for the uphill road ahead. - Willierose  2348.6 #67 11:58PM
Prayers to you and your family on this difficult road ((((hugs)))) - toph  2418.2 #60 12:33AM
Cafe1989- my father died 2 years ago from cancer. I know exactly what you are feeling and going through. I still feel like I have a hole in my heart that will never go away. If you want someone to talk to or just listen, feel free to DM me. I am so sorry you have to go through this. - Sharkgrrl19  255.2 #1299 8:44AM
My son came home from India tonight and told me a couple of stories that touched my heart. He talked about how very little most of the Indian people have, especially in the area he traveled to. He talked about how happy the street children were to use crayons - crayons! But most of all, it made me so proud to hear him talk about the things he saw and the people he met, and how it affected him and changed his life. He already wants to go back, and wants our whole family to go back with him. - PrincessKristin  780.8 #240 11:31PM
you did good PK! sounds like he has a huge heart like his momma😊 - toph  2418.2 #60 11:45PM
He's definitely one to be proud of 😊 - LBChica  2437.4 #59 11:47PM
Great story :) Proud Prancing Mama - misschurro  6362.1 #17 6:56AM
My Bestie is going through some very hard times in her marriage right now and so tonight we were able to just spend the night together and although it ended in tears and hugs I am so thankful to have her in my life. We understand each other completely inside and out. We've been best friends going on six years and i truly could not imagine this life journey without her! - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #233 11:52PM
She is blessed to have you! Those friendships are the best! I love my best friend too, I have a few good friends but to have a friend like that is extra special - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #26 11:56PM
I could not agree more! 😊 - AshleyLynn22  791.2 #233 12:50AM
1st- my 11 year old daughter saved up her money and bought herself an iPod touch today. Super proud of her for making a goal and working (literally) to achieve it. 2nd- 2 months ago my mother had a stroke. I've been running her house and mine. Today she decided to try going to the grocery store herself...she made it. I was proud of her for feeling ready and confident to drive and happy because this is one less thing for me to worry about. - Linzee  1188.6 #146 11:55PM
Wonderful news about your Mom! I hope she only continues to get stronger!! - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 12:12AM
Well my friends, I'm off to bed! Thank you to those who shared, and to those who contributed supportive comments to those who needed it. 😘 Much love to you all! Heres to another beautiful day tomorrow, to make way for better things! - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 12:14AM
Thanks SIC for posting this. It's always great to reflect on what's great in life rather than focus on the bad. - LilSterner  5455.2 #20 12:31AM
Great post SIC! I'm happy to hear you sound so happy. I got some news this week from a great friend and fellow MWer that may make it possible for Solo, Nia and I to make a visit in September! I'm crossing my fingers!!! - DizGeek  453.6 #483 6:18AM
That would be wonderful!!! - misschurro  6362.1 #17 6:49AM
Oh yay! - LBChica  2437.4 #59 7:32AM
I'm super excited!! I hope you can make it out when we are the LB! - DizGeek  453.6 #483 9:42AM
Lil E took a cake decorating class and the teacher told her she must have decorated cakes before. I believe she learned by watching the Costco Livermore cake decorator by her daily demonstrations. Lil E is very artistic naturally too - E-Ticket  1466.8 #115 6:46AM
Nice! Cake decorating is not easy. Yay for Lil E - misschurro  6362.1 #17 6:50AM
That's awesome, yay lil E! - LBChica  2437.4 #59 7:32AM
I love this post! This morning I got a good chuckle while walking my dog because her shadow looked like a werewolf and she's just a small corgi/border collie mix. Made me smile. :) - LisaMouse7531  410.1 #544 8:33AM
This comes after getting laid off last week and I feel more like myself by finding te little things to smile at despite nervousness over the future. - LisaMouse7531  410.1 #544 8:37AM
About a year ago I went through a phase where I felt very alone and even though I knew I had support from my family and husband, I felt like I had drifted away from my friends and we had grown apart. It's hard to explain but I felt like I had had all my close friends forever and we just weren't that close anymore. Not sure what happened but over the course of the last year I've met new, wonderful people (MW and non-MW related) and now I feel like I have a circle of support and friends that I didn't have before. It's a good feeling. - LaneSparrow316  847.0 #218 8:57AM
Love you 😍😍😍😘 - PrincessKristin  780.8 #240 9:50AM
Love you Lane aka Lame - HanLostLeia  1098.3 #165 9:55AM
Love you guys, too! And Sue and the Hiddens and Sandcars and Strawberries and Alicewhoareyou and....there's just too many to name! LOL - LaneSparrow316  847.0 #218 10:00AM
