Too Many Good Things to Talk About Versus Bad Things Part I

Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart

Come on now, it is quickly approaching the weekend, and if you are educated enough to read this whether you are 12 or 112, you have better in your life than you have bad. There is better in the world than it is bad. Better in the USA than bad.

 Let me show you just in case you are not recognizing it. My wife’s niece is diabetic, for most of her life she has had serious medical from around the time she married her totally amazing loving husband Ronnie.

 Give you just one example of this young lady when she became a teacher before all her illnesses, living in West Virginia, she recognized many people look upon the accent that many have from that area of the country, it was a sign of not as well learned (shall we say) and she decided to CHANGE! Yes, she INSTANTLY CHANGED… Did away with her southern accent, and still maintains that position even with a husband talking about how he talks always around her seven days a week.

 I learn much from this lady. She can only get out of the house to go to see doctors! IMAGINE! Living that kind of life. Yet to talk with her she sounds like life is better for her than it is for the average American. You see she has a strong belief in God.

 And NOW she found out this week she is going to become a GRANDMA! She had just told me a couple of weeks ago, she hoped God allowed her to live long enough to become a grandmother. I wonder if prayer or faith. could have anything to do with that.

 You would not believe the conditions Melody and Ronnie live with, in a little home in need of repairs, heat bills of as much at $800.00 a month in the winter! Yet he is working his way through school in the medical field, online and within a year God willing they will see income like never believed just a few years ago.

 I hope your day is as great as mine

Good morning Dan - I believe that attitudes are more important than facts.  Your wife's neice is a great example.

Hi Dan- some people look at what they don't have and live with it while others, such as your niece, take what they have and make the most of it.
