"What about the good stuff?"

You know how when you are doing so good and life just seems be going so well and then Satan does everything he can to bring you down? Yeah....those times. I'm not very fond of those times because I tend to give in. Lame huh? Well...my amazing Momma had some awesome words of wisdom that I have been trying to follow...and guess what! It works! She said that she can "...see how negative feelings tend to run away with us...but wait! What about the good stuff?" And then she gave me a list of the "good stuff"!  I've loved reading this list pretty much on a daily basis. Often more than once in a day! So many good things have happend in my life! Here is the list she gave me...I added a few of my own and then some personal "good stuff"!
