I love your positive attitude! I used to do a thing every day on the PA in my elementary school called, "Gratitude Attitude" where the kids would take turns saying something they were thankful for each day. I started it by saying I was really grateful for Frederick Banting and his discovery of insulin because all the kids knew I was diabetic.

There was a whole movement in the States called Gratitude and "G" was their symbol. I did this when I ws really sick and it helped me focus on the positives. (I have a myriad of health gunk!)

Storyteller, you have perhaps the best collection of quotes ever in your sidebar. It's very hard to leave here.

I'm very glad that you've decided to blog because your site is as steadying as meditation, and keeps the focus on those things that are truly important and beneficial to life.

Thank you for your lovely feedback. You've made my day! Long a "closeted writer" I've taken the plunge at last. So far ... so good. I'm alive and well ... learning all the time ... meeting interesting and kind folks in this Virtual World. I'm glad you stopped by left a comment.
Hugs and blessing,

Thank you so much for letting us here all of these positive things in your life. It's neat to hear about the lemons and limes! I heard they were winter fruits but I still find that interesting.

I'll have to also check out Google Reader! I'm lucky to live in a place that seems to have all the neat things of the 50s like hundreds of trick or treaters, LOL.

Talking Bear said...

ST, thank you for you kind words toward my blog. I love how you keep the positives in front of you. TB

storyteller said...

Thanks for stopping by and adding your observations. If you need a link to GR, I can share the one Annie gave me. This is one useful tool that I'm sure you'll love as much as I do.

As for Trick or Treaters, I miss the old days, but it's nice to not have that candy around the house.

I'm so glad you lumbered out of Sleepy Bear Hollow, found your way here ... looked around and enjoyed what you found enough to leave a comment. As for the finding the positives, my friends sometimes tease me saying if they gave me a shovel I'd dig through a pile of shit in search of a pony. :)
Maybe I would.

Thanks also for your patience with me through all those emails coping with my confusions. I'm doing better all the time with a little help ... (humming as I post this).
Hugs and blessings,

May every day be as happy as this one for you!

Annelisa -- what a lovely wish. Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comment here. Actually I find most days my gratitude list overflows abundantly! Life is good and I am blessed.
Hugs and blessings to you and yours,
