This is a good life

This is a good life.  Lately everywhere I turn I'm reminded of God's provision and blessings.  From the color of the sunset to the windows down in the car with the wind blowing or the giant zucchini growing in our backyard!

I heard a story the other day about a father who was extremely positive, so positive in fact that people would try to say something negative to him just to try and see if they could get him - as a joke - to say "gotcha!" But to no avail, he would always take what they would say and spin it into something positive!

That's my goal. To take those negative things that people spew and spin them on their head into something positive.  I'll keep you posted on how they react!
