What was the most favorite thing that happened to you this week?Page 1 of 18    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18)
When ever my girlsand I are chatting about the events in our life, I always ask them what your favorite part about today....the trip we just took... the family BBQ we were at.....

I do this so we can all see the positive of our daily lives. After a long, challenging week I was feeling run down, emotionally drained, not so positive.. ...I asked my self "what was the most favorite part of my week?..The answer came quickly. I was invited to a childs' 6 year old birthday party. This was not any child. In fact this is his very 1st birthday party ever. I have had the honor to meet him when he was 3. He happened upon my life, and he quickly touched my heart, see he didn't have a family. This was not by his choice, this is what was handed to him. He lived in the "system" he moved from foster parent to foster parent. He is a spunky little fellow, because of some learning disiabilities he can also be difficult at times, he is always loving. Recently he was adopted by a wonderful young woman. His angel in my eyes. Watching the changes in his recent life, put happy tears in my eyes and heart. This week I received an invitation, to his first birthday party ever. I WILL be attending it Sunday. I feel honored to have been invited.

After answering my own question I suddenly was no longer feeling run down or drained. I felt a renewed sense of hope, energy and happiness.

We all, at times feel run down, or drained, maybe not seeing the postives of our daily lives. So I'm asking "What was your most favorite thing that happened to you this week?" I'm hoping your answers will amaze yourself and remind us all that wonderful things are happening in our lives each and every day.

Wow! Raider I think your stories are great. It seems you have a lot of favorite moments this week. I love it when that happens.

Suni-best of luck girl. If you go on tour I hope you keep up with these forums, I really enjoy your post.

My favorite thing about today!!! My daughter actually emptied the garbage in the bathroom, even replaced the bag and I didn't even ask her. Could this be a new horizon opening up? Ahhhhhh probably just luck but it made me happy. My daughters best part of her day so far, meeting a new friend while at the beauty parlor.

NANCY............this is a wonderfully 'refreshing' THREAD.......thanks for creating it! I tried to e-mail you (rather than post).........but your mail settings don't allow someone MY AGE .....................Yikes@!!!................or 'gender'!!!!!!!!!!

Since Cajun mentioned that he was WAITING for an e-mail from you, I was wondering if there was some MAIL RESTRICTION about accepting or sending mail from CAJUNS!!!!

Might WANT to check that out, Nancy???

Raider: YOU really have me intriqued!!! Your 'new guy' bought you a gift and you have NOT met him yet????? HOW did YOU pull that off???? I am BOTH impressed and intriqued!! TELL me your 'secret'! *smile*

Hello Fellow Fishies............

the best thing that happened to ME this week............. ?? lets see, its week three of a "new relationship" and ALL is going well.... don't want to jinx anything, but i will say i DID meet him on THIS SITE......... after 2 1/2 years i FINALLY met someone who fits....and who "gets me". we've been getting together on the weekends as he lives in a different city, and friday, he came by after visiting the local green house supply place.... the first thing he said was "do you have anything that needs to be repotted?" and we spent the next two hours working on repotting all of my plants and i have a LOT of them......... it was great to be outside together, working and talking and my plants ARE very, very happy in their new potting soil.......


laura....... have a BLAST on your vacation and ENJOY every minute of it............ nancy, what an awesome story.....God bless your little friend on his birthday and his new MOM for making a place for him in her life and in her heart........Raiderfan, i wish you lived closer so you could host a "POF belly dancing class", now that would be a novel idea, wouldn't it........ i bet you would have a room full of women wanting to learn, myself included............SRQ, hey Gal........ love the new picture........ how's that outdoor party coming along?? and Cajun....... why don't you just pack up all your stuff and come back to FL where all the "real women" are!! and will someone drop froggy a line and tell him to write me......... he changed his screen name and settings and i can't write coz i'm more that 75 miles away!! thanks!!

Thanks SRQ. I never really looked at my settings, except to not accept IMU's. I have adjusted them. Seems I had a lot.

Cajun you may want to check your mail, but now the bras from me and Hallie couldn't be sent by e-mail.

Wolfie that is great news: I won't comment further, don't want to jinx either.

Belly dancing classes? Now their is an idea.

My favorite thing was that I actually had a night off, and went to my first pof party as a guest, instead of being the band. I finally got to meet, dance, and talk to the people who've been coming and dancing at the parties I've worked at. So many nice people, I had a great time, Debo, thanks for hosting this event, Michael, thanks for the greatb music, and youknowwho, thanks for the company

Well every week is a favorite one if it starts with "still breathing" lol. The weather has been beautiful. Had dinner with my son, who although he lives closer now, is generally busy. A date to meet someone I have been chatting with and had to postpone due to some unexpected surgery, has been once again put into play. I am really looking forward to meeting him (very nice guy). And although I am still healing from the surgery, the key word is "I am healing!" Better each and every day!!

Now Bellydancing is something I have wanted to learn along with the pole thing. Suppose to be GREAT exercise!!

WELL - I thought I would do my BEST to be a 'cross poster'!!!

THIS week............. I ENJOYED the daylight savings time ...............got off work in the DAYLIGHT and went to the beach to catch a sunset!

Where I saw this 'lovely' grandfatherly gentlemen striding down the beach with a LOOK of JOY and contentment on his face~! We 'smiled' at each other in passing!

I came home and poured my self a glass of Banifi's Col de Sasso and signed on to the computer and found out that my fellow fisshies ALSO had 'favorite' things to post!

Then I read an e-mail from a 'fish' who had actually taken the time to READ my profile and incorporate what I SAID!! ...instead of the 'generic hey-there-ho-there that I sometimes receive!

Isn't it GRAND when there is 'Peace in the Pond'?????

After being pretty much housebound for the past 3 weeks due to some unexpected surgery, I was able to meet a few of my POF friends for dinner and dancing last night. Man, it was GREAT to see everyone!!

Also, I have been smiling all week after reading emails, and talking to my friend on the East Coast. Counting the days until we meet. Scary, but exciting all at once!! I even feel today (friday the 13th) is going to be FANTASTIC

This is off topic in that it did not happen to me, but nevertheless I think it is a story that will give hope to all singles that would rather not be single.

I think we can all agree that one, if not THE worst thing that can happen to us is for one of our children to die before we die. Well, that is what happened to my best friend. Her 34 year-old son died at the end of last year.

Last night she called to tell me that she is now "seeing" the rabbi that officiated at her son's memorial service. Of course I gave her the "Whoa, take it easy speech", but I am so happy for her. Sometimes good things begin during the worst times of our lives.

More proof that "Happiness comes through doors we did not know we left open".

Going back to the original thread, I spent one of the best 2 hours in recent memory on the Boca beach yesterday afternoon. I won't go into the boring details, but suffice to say it made my week.
and to wanna, all things heal in time, you just have to want to heal, and that determines how much time it takes. I say that from experience

I don't think this is off topic or the wrong thread: Her happiness was a favorite part of your week!
It is so true about the doors!!

So far my favorite thing this week was going out to dinner with my coworkers. We get together now and then to eat, drink, chat and be merry. We had a lot of laughs and some serious moments too.

I wrote "so far", because tomorrow I plan to go to "Old Downtown Melbourne" for their
St. Patrick fest. Should be a lot of FUN. Hoping it will be my favorite, favorite thing.

ok, so it's 4 AM and what the helllllll am i still doing up??? what was the best part of MY week.......... i have a handicapped son, he requires 24/7 care........ i have a nurse in the day time but at night, it's just ME........ so i don't get out much. i sometimes can get someone to care for him for a night, but it's complicated.......and it's never a sure thing.

my 51st b'day was on tuesday, and tonight at 7:30, TEN of my girlfriends from HIGH SCHOOL brought the party to my house!! they have been going out for each other's b'days and i always seem to miss most of them so they decided that since i can't come to the party, they would bring the party to me........ OMG!! it was soooooooo much fun. i have know all of these women since 7th grade, and three of them i have known since the 5th grade!! ( we graduated from Oak Ridge High School in Orlando in 1976!!) everyone brought food, drink or decorations and even some very lovely gifts............ i am so blessed to have had these women in my life for so long. this was by far the BEST part of my week............. and i was the best part of my son's too when he was surrounded by 9 BEAUTIFUL women posing for a picture with him.

ladies, just remember, "boyfriends come and go, but true girlfriends are there for a life time!"

happy fishing y'all............ Wolfie

ps: and everyone in my house tonight knows exactly why my name is "Wolfie" and where and how it originated!!

OK, So this is off topic.........but I don't care........... i want to give mr. eddj a small piece of advise:

the best way to NOT make new friends is to be rude to them when they take the time to send you a simple WELCOME to POF email. personally, i didn't think that was very "charming". just plain rude.

happy fishing Wolfie

I glad for you also Hallie, if I knew how to put one of these smiley things here I would,
but aren't you proud of me that I know how to quote now?
