(With some hesitation...) Happy International Be Positive Day

(Macy is beeing positive...)

Today is supposed to be INTERNATIONAL BE POSITIVE DAY.  In-light of the devastating storms yesterday, I know it is hard to put on a happy face and be positive. But perhaps it is needed more than ever. 

We can make a difference for the people of Oklahoma by suggesting our Twitter, Facebook and blog friends can make a donation, no matter how big or small to help out.  With so many homes lost the Red Cross will use up its emergency resources quickly.

So my dear friends...Please go out and spread some positive words...

Hugs (and prayers),
Sharon

  1. Hi Sharon .. what a great idea - and so pleased you've put the link up.

    My thoughts are with all the people who have been affected by the tornadoes ..

    Exactly the words we needed to read today .. Hilary

  2. Macy is being positive even though there's a costume involved. Resistance to putting it on or doesn't mind?

    You know my thoughts on this. Disasters happen everyday in different ways. Our followers and friends are international. Just because this hits closer to home for some of us, doesn't mean on another day, something else would hit closer to home for your other readers.

    Look at the Boston Marathon week. More people died in Afghanistan that day than at the Marathon. Because of its atypical nature here, Boston got most of the media attention and sympathy.

    Victims can use positivity too, so I'm glad you've organized this.

  4. During our disaster five years ago Red Cross fed not only the homeless but the people working to help rescue and recover. Red Cross does amazing things. You can never go wrong donating to them.

  8. Prayers and positive vibes will definitely be a focus today for the poor people and what they've been through.

    Times like these bring us all closer together. And focusing on helping and hope will get them through these times. Humans are so resilient.

  10. Did you see that video of that woman finding her dog in the rubble? It made her so happy and really put things in perspective. You can find it on my FB wall if you haven't seen it yet.

    Sending out a round of hugs--have a wonderful day you guys. :)

  12. Never knew there was such a day. Can I be positive in a negative way? lo

  13. Positive? Always. =) I think it's easy to take for granted the most important things in our lives: our family. Whenever I hear about disasters like these, I hug my "littles" close and ponder on how truly blessed I am.

  14. Hi Sharon,

    We were in two minds in regards to putting up a posting in light of the horrendous tornado situation in Oklahoma. And thus, instead of posting about "Happy International Be Positive Day" I'm going to share your posting around to as many networks links as possible and your link to the Red Cross.

    If we can provide a modicum of comfort through such an ordeal, than the positivity shall be there for all to see.

    Thank you, Sharon.

    Hugs,

    Gary

  20. You are brilliant! ((Hugs)) - which sounds so lame - to those affected by the storms. I can't even imagine the horror. The Red Cross is a wonderful organization. I've donated blood many times.
