Need to "hear" something uplifting!

I'm coming out of a little bit of a rut and would love to hear something uplifting.
At the moment, how do you feel blessed or what beauty have you seem recently. Any good deeds done by you or someone else? What do you love about your life and are grateful for?

  • this is no big deal, but my 3 yr old cousin (lives with me, he's mine) ran to open a door for a woman with a stroller. I was impressed.

  • My husband has spent more quality time with the kids, and gave me a break. Also, he is trying to help us keep our relationship going, sometimes it is a struggle but he is working on it for our sake.

    I am greatful for everyone in my home being healthy, and my family. Thank you

  • My dear SO went out into our yard and cut about 2 dozen or so of different spring flowers that has bloomed and gave them to me. It was so sweet, like a nervous young man handing picked flowers to his first date. I arranged them nicely in two pretty vases that he bought for me a couple years back. I was showing our 14 month old daughter how to smell them...and instead of sniffing them, she gave them kisses! cute.

  • I visited the memorial of the Oklahoma city bombing and there in the middle of it all is a tree that was orignially a backyard tree. when the building was built, they left the tree. After the bombing and all the heavy equipment running over it, it was still standing, fragile and damaged but still living. To this day, the tree is a symbol of hope, Hope that even when something terrible happens, beauty and strength will prevail just as it does in the human spirit.

  • When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that ballpoint pens would not work in zero gravity. To combat the problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 billion to develop a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside down, underwater, on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to 300 degrees Celsius. The Russians used a pencil.
