We used to have a weekly radio programme (in London) where people use to phone in and say “what made me feel good” this week.
It may be a baby’s first laugh, passing an exam, being able to help someone, going to visit someone, meeting a friend and so on. It was a great programme and really made you reflect on all the great things in life that Hashem bestows on us. Could we do the same?July 22, 2009 10:32 pm at 10:32 pm #996804
Could we do the same?
What an absolutely fabulous idea!!!!! I’ll start. My 13 month old granddaughter saw me, picked her hands up, smiled and said, “Up-a Bubba.” When I picked her up, she nuzzled me and giggled. NOTHING, but NOTHING beats that! I have always maintained that it is so important to be makir tov to Hashem for everything, and not take His chessed for granted. The problem is, so many are too preoccupied to realize just how much we do receive.July 23, 2009 1:30 am at 1:30 am #996805FunnyBunnyMember

LOL Ames. I hope it apologized.
This morning…I was running late and just went in to give my son milk. I handed it to him, he drank some, said “All done.” Then he looked up at me and in the cutest voice said “Up. Up.” So of course I had to pick him up. And hug him. And he hugged me back.
I love this age right now (17 months) – he is communicating/talking, friendly, fun…July 24, 2009 2:20 pm at 2:20 pm #996835

ames my friend I am so glad that you were not hurt!
One thing that made my day: a man pushing a full wagon insisted that i go ahead of him as I was only carrying 2 items!
Another thing: I saw a Rav close the garbage cans of a stranger after the garbage men had so carelessly strewn them around!

Yesterday, I was very happy because my family came over to my house for the lunch seuda and for shalosh seuda. All the food came out good-nothing burnt. The company was great.
I love this thread! What a great idea it was.July 27, 2009 6:27 pm at 6:27 pm #996843areivimzehlazehParticipant
Hashem is too good:
– Although running very late, I “somehow” got to work on time (past few days)
– I nearly got a client in deep trouble but Hashem prevented me from reaching the wrong party
– A sick relative is B”H doing much better
– 3 of my clients showed appreciation, and also passed along a good word to the ‘right’ people
– I made it indoors just before the rain
– A long lost friend called me last night
– My nieces & nephews were well behaved (a ness in and of itself)
And much more…July 27, 2009 6:57 pm at 6:57 pm #996844
…only 7 more business days until my maternity leave starts 🙂July 27, 2009 11:03 pm at 11:03 pm #996845
SJS, don’t most people have maternity leave when they have a baby? Are you planning to deliver in 7 business day? I’m puzzled.
I feel good today because a close relative was in a minor accident and everyone is ok. Just bangs and bruises all around. Hashem truly blessed me.July 27, 2009 11:22 pm at 11:22 pm #996846
Just me – B”H. During the Nine Days, it is especially scary when someone has an accident.July 28, 2009 1:56 am at 1:56 am #996847FunnyBunnyMember
Baruch Hashem, I was also saved from what could have been a horrific accident on Thursday- and this is during the Nine Days when we have to be xtra cautious. bli neder i’ll post the story in the hashgocha protis thread- that is, if I could find it. . . can someone please post the link?July 28, 2009 3:30 am at 3:30 am #996848shaatraMember

Question for you mod- Are all the mods male? Another question- Do all mods become mods because they have pull, like they are close friends of the original, top-mods? Hm….
There’s a thread here somewhere called Attention Mods. Feel free to direct any random questions to the mods there. I’d give you the link, but I didn’t figure out how to do that yet… 26

Ambush: thanks!! I started it a few months ago when a young father in my community passed away suddenly and I was very very upset about it and I was thinking how lucky I am: my parents, family….. I have so many things to be thankful for so I started writing it down, first of all, for my self, to appreciate what I have but also to show Hashem that I’m so thankful for what He gives me…July 28, 2009 8:45 pm at 8:45 pm #996855

Oomis, it is always scary getting a call that there was a car accident. A few years ago my son was hit by a car. I remember running down the block to where the accident was. I could hardly breath. This wasn’t as bad. B”H everything is all right. It seems the problems we are having this year by the 3 weeks is of our own making. Definatally chevlas Moshiach.
Shaatra, that is a beautiful thing to do. Everyone would be happier if they realized the blessings Hashem gives them.
Mrs. Beautiful, mazal tov! You should have a lot of Yiddishe nachas!
I am feeling good this afternoon because when I was feeling low and yucky, coworkers and family came over to make me feel better.July 29, 2009 2:33 am at 2:33 am #996859
Firstly, kudos to estherh for starting this thread- the positive atmosphere you lend to the CR is immeasurable!
What made me feel good today?
Waking up feeling rested- first time in months if not years…
Getting ready for a close friends Chassunah….
and just seeing Jews who hold there head up high and say “I am Jew, and I AM PROUD OF IT!” and i act like it…
