Truly Newsworthy

This is such a great post, I can't help but share it. Gustav's entire blog is a gift to read, but this post in particular, along with the comments, is a veritable ray of light and sincerity that I can't help but share. I hope you, too, are edified by it, especially in light of how dreary and gloomy things certainly seem to be when you read the news these days. (Thanks to HWHL for linking to it as well).

On this particular subject, having Kent as a husband comes in great handy.
He spent 2 years in Ukraine, right after the fall of communism. THings weren't great, to say the least. But he did realize that there can be happiness and joy no matter what is going on and that focusing on the positve helps the negative seem a little less scary.
Life goes on, no matter what the media tells us.

Jill, your husband is a wise man. Anyone who has figured this out has figured out one of life's great puzzles!

I have read Gustav's post at least 3 or 4 times - I think it is BRILLIANT! (He is brilliant, truthfully... he doesn't post often, but when he does, it's always worth reading...).

Stacy, I love your updated profile! I hadn't read it in quite awhile and it is GREAT! You encapsulate so many wonderful things! (We would SO hang out if you lived in Atlanta!) :-)

This past week has been very painful for me (I have a very difficult situation going on in my life... too personal to blog about) and I feel greatly uplifted by my friend... both locally and in the "blogosphere". Friendship is such a sweet nectar in this life, isn't it? :-)

I read that post, too, and thought he made so many great points. We all know what news "sells" and how there is a whole world the media is truly missing. Thanks for sharing!

These are such great comments. Such great points!

And thank you, HWHL! That's so nice of you!! I'm really enjoying getting to know you. Friendship both locally and in the blogosphere really is such a sweet nectar!
