Isn’t there any good news ?

I get up each morning and sit by the puter.
Coffee in hand.
Dogs and cats have been fed.
I look into emails.
I go to my main page for the news of the day.
Not one good thing.
Bombings, Bankruptcy, Below normal forecasts.
That was just the home page news.
I also have gardening and entertainment news.
Just in case the local and national news didn’t do it for me.

Well, today I wanted Good News.

When I put the dogs in the back yard, and was waiting for my coffee to brew, I looked out my kitchen window.

The sun is out. Yes, it’s yellowish in my woods. I have a bit of view. Through the woods I can see just a tiny bit of the hills. They look beautiful in the morning. They do in the afternoon too but in the morning it’s awe like. In my opinion, through my woods, in my back yard.

So, today I was excited to open my news page. To hear that the rest of the world had a bit of sunshine too. Nope, those reporters told the sad bad stories. I know that’s their jobs but today couldn’t they have put a spin on them.

At least mention the flowers in the courtyard where the bombings occurred.
Tell me about the trees with the birds by the company that is going bankrupt.
Let me imagine how pretty it is when they get out of their car to go to work at the company that had below normal forecasts, just today please.

Tomorrow they can be gloomy. Not today. The sun is out at my house. That doesn’t happen all the time. Today the world needs to put a positive spin on things.

Oh, and the cats say MEOW … they love it when the sun is out. They ask to go outside and of course I say no. If you read about my Lilly Ann, you know why.

Hope you all have a PURRFECT Fryday. It’s spelled that way cause the kittens get special canned kitty food on Frydays. And, Yes they are spoiled. Like every furrball should be.

It’s a Wow Meow Kind of Day.

They say bad news sells papers. I buy the paper to know what is going on. IDK...Maybe there is more bad than good; maybe they aren't looking hard enough for the good. You found plenty of good this morning: Good sunshine, good views, good critter friends. Thank you for a lovely post.

Your cat seems to be looking out the window, seeking that good news! Sometimes we have to find the good news in our own life, and leave the television off for awhile, the newspaper folded up. The flowers we see, the birds singing, being content in our corner of the world, those small things really matter.

Can't help but look at the online news sites every morning..... why do I do that? Very rarely good news there.
Our good news today is the sun is out, not a cloud in the sky. The weather is mild, around 75 degrees. It's Fryday!
Tomorrow I will be transporting 20 feral cats to a spay/neuter clinic 3 hours away. Should be an interesting time to say the least :)
Hope you have the purrfect weekend!

Hope your weekend is wonderful too.

I used to do that with my kitties--give them canned food once a week for a treat. Now they are so old they need canned food all the time.

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
