The Feel-Good Thread
Posted 20 March 2008 - 08:22 AM
Because I liked the last thread so much, I am bringing it back in a purposely-created thread this time. Post the little things each day that made you smile. If you already posted, and something good happens again, make another post. Whatever it is that made you smile, no matter how little it may seem, is what this thread is about.
I will start us off:
I got a call this morning from Sallie Mae, who I am several months behind in paying my student loan. I have been unemployed for a few months; working some freelance computer training sessions for people while I study for my A+ computer certification. I explained my situation to the person from Sallie Mae when they called, and they forgave all my overdue payments and made my next payment due May 1st!
I should have my A+ certification by then and a full-time job!

Death is not a hunter unbeknownst to its prey, one is always aware that it lies in wait. Though life is merely a journey to the grave, it must not be undertaken without hope. Only then will a traveler's story live on, treasured by those who bid him farewell.
