One Good Thing Week Three

One Good Thing

This is the third of our series of posts we're calling One Good Thing. Each Friday, we will be choosing one good thing from the week prior to highlight. While lots of good things can be found throughout the week, this is a place to spotlight one in particular. It might be something as simple as a great meal we had or a blog post that particularly inspired us. It could be something awesome that happened in our lives or in the world around us. It might be something related to our blog. Some will be from Gloria and some from Beverly. They will all be short snippets of what made us stop and think, "Well that was a good thing!" We would love to have anyone share with us their own One Good Thing.

This week's One Good Thing is the abundant love that is flowing! It's been heartwarming to read about so many lovely gestures that people take the time to do for others. Valentine's Day is often a day that those in one corner will say is nothing more than a commercialized holiday designed to make the consumer spend money. To that I say, Bah! The day is whatever you choose to make it. 

Valentine's Day is a day we set aside to celebrate love. To those who say "I don't need a day to show my loved ones that I love them,"  you're absolutely right. We don't need such a day. But how can there be anything wrong with devoting a day to the celebration of all the love we have in our lives? 

It's not the one day out of the year to show love. It's simply a day in mid February that we give our attention to celebrating the love we have year round. To me, anything that is about love is definitely One Good Thing. 


That’s my One Good Thing this week. What's yours?

In the words written by  Paul McCartney~ "And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make."


We would love it if you would comment and share your One Good Thing from the week. Feel free to add a link to something awesome if you would like. 

Happy Valentine's Day. May the love you celebrate fill your heart!

Beverly, what a beautiful post, so thoughtfully and eloquently written!

My one good thing this week was to finally finish the 6 weeks of training I have been doing for my company - and just in time for a nice long Valentine's/President's Day weekend! Have a wonderful weekend!

Thank you, Laurie! I'm all about celebrating all kinds of love!

Yay for finishing the training. I hope you have a fantastic holiday weekend.

Thank you so much for taking time to share your one good thing each week. It means a lot to me to have you stop by for this!

I think this is a wonderful idea! Life keeps us all on the fast track, and to take a few minutes to slow down and remember at least one good thing makes me smile! I truly enjoy being a part of this series!

You've just given me a huge smile! Thank you. It's easy to get a little discouraged and to second guess myself about posting this each week, but it is very encouraging to know that you're enjoying it!
