The Good News Cafe
« on: August 21, 2009, 11:52:34 AM »
This thread will be devoted to the sharing of good news in our lives.  Consider it the opposite of the Vent and stress reliever thread.



I didn't see a tread for good news. I have been posting updates about my stupid leg on the Relieve You Stress topic. Others encouraged me to start this topic. This is to be a place to share the good things that happen in your life. Star Wars or not.
So here is the first entry. This happened on 8/19/09.
      I use to play the drums at my church back up in Indiana.  After my accident I couldn't play anymore. Or so I thought. I was invited to night to play drums with my church down here in GA where I live now. It was a small set, 3 songs but, I did it. I played the bass with my bad leg! I am paying for it now but it was well worth it. When I was born I had to be brought out by C-section (I know that's not how you spell it but it works for me) because I had drumsticks in my hand. I have played professionally for around 20 years. So, a year of not playing drums was torture!
I made it through the whole set and everyone said it sounded great. I thought it was rusty but I have always been hard on myself.
PRAISE GOD!  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Next :)

My washed out driveway with a 12% grade that took me on average of 3 attempts to get up with my 2 wheel pickup is finally paved.  All 300' of it.  It was a long hot 2 days of working but it looks awesome.

I fully understand! I use to work at the County Jail as a jailer and I wouldn't have traded my night shift for anything!
Anyways, do you know what this is $$$$$$$$$$$ ???    It's the money you could be saving with Geico!  ;D

Luke, That sounds like a job to be proud of! Hard work has it's rewards! Thanks for encouraging me to start this!

Just found out a recent publication of mine will be highlighted in a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Press Release that will be sent from the new NIH director  ;D

I like the idea of a Good News Cafe thread.

Congrats on getting back to drumming Amptrooper!

This is a GREAT Topic!

Actually... I've been working the midnight shift for the last 7 years...

Miss my wife, and helping her with my newborn son..... :(

But praise the Lord.... I have a job in one of the worst economic cities, Detroit...

Plus He keeps on blessing me with more commissioned artwork so I don't go too crazy working in a lab (though, as their slogan goes, ... Save A Life)...

But health is there... I have a son after years of trying... God is Good!!!

My son turned 7 months today!  ;D

My karate school is kicking! Surviving the worst economic time was a challenge, but we are over the hump and ready to rock the back to school season!

I love what I do and do what I love.

After two years of slow manipulating & whining, my wife finally decided to get rid of her Nissan and bought a better car!  :D

(Long story short, when we moved in together my wife's daily commuting grew significantly and I let her use my more comfortable and economical car. So I got to do my daily commuting with her car, which was only marginally better option than a bicycle for my 60km/40 mile daily ride... But no more of that, wohoo! ;))
