    I am from the USA and I am over 18. I love that I recently returned home from vacation and I was able to take my mom and dad with me. It was my dad’s first time to ever see the ocean and I can’t even begin to describe the feelings he had over seeing it!

    Hello! I’m over 18 and reside in the USA. My lovely thing is that this weekend was the first time my guys daughter spent the night with us since we’ve been together (we recently moved in together) and it has gone extremely well so far. She is still intimidated by my dog (who’s an 80lb love sponge) but love my kitties.

    HIYA! I’m Moira and 42 years old in the US on the East Coast in North Carolina. I’ll tell you how Loki, my furson and I found each other. Sometime in April of 2014, I was wandering in Petsmart as I always do when I shop for the furkids, it was a Wed and I wandered over to look at the kitties. He was in there with a couple solid black girls. What drew my attention was he was sneezing and as soon as he saw me, he started rubbing against the plexiglass to get to me. I couldn’t take him home that day, I was headed to work in the mall after I got the girls food, at that time we had 3 girls. So I told the cashier he was sneezing and snot got on the window. She said she would get someone to check on him. I worried about that cat for a couple days. I told my hubby I was going back Fri to check on him because it would bug me until I knew he was okay. I was off that day and whatever would be would be. So I went back and the girls were gone but he was still there and they were calling him Puffin which he absolutely hated. So I asked if I could see him and possibly adopt him.
    It was love at first sight for both of us. He was still sneezing but they said it was because he was enclosed with the cat litter and he breathed it in. So I brought him home. I called my hubby on the way and said”Please don’t be mad at me, I’m bringing that cat home.” He said why would he be mad, he already knew what I was going to do before I did. Sometime it annoys me when he does that.
    I told him we had to figure out a new name because he hates his name and when I told him what it was he said he got it. Loki is a tuxedo cat so I get why they called him Puffin but they didn’t ask him about it.
    SO, fast forward later and I’m sitting in my garden tub relaxing and he’s doing his gravity testing bit. I’d been stuck on L names for some reason. I’m watching him and I said “If you aren’t the Norse God of chaos and fire, I’m an idiot.” That look I got when he turned around was priceless like HOW THE HECK DO YOU KNOW THAT. I called my hubby in and said I know his name, its Loki. So my hubby looks at Loki and says Hey Loki! Loki looks at him like Yeah, what do you want?
    The thing about Loki is that I didn’t just save him, he actually saved me when I needed some guidance in my life at that time. I was having a hard time at a horrible job that I was doing my best to stick with and it was starting to kill me, though I didn’t realize it. It wasn’t but a few weeks of bringing him home that I was at that job and my boss came in and was really nasty to me. I felt my blood pressure skyrocket and I don’t have blood pressure issues. I thought of Loki and Tim at home and thought get through this shift and then just leave your keys. I knew I had enough. So I kept my head down and finished the shift. Clocked out, wrote a note and walked out. I figure don’t even acknowledge the negativity. I called the hubby in the way home and told him what happened and all I got was it was about time. {As you can see, the hubby lets me learn instead of stopping me}I’m happier for it. I think if Loki hadn’t come into my life, I think I’d had died in my sleep from a heart attack or a stroke. Something good, I didn’t just save a life, I brought home a good friend who is very chaotic and gives good advice even when I don’t want it.

    Hiya! I’m 33 years young. Lol I live in the U.S. something lovely today is that I’m in awe of my daughter. She’s been going to school since she was 3 years old. And since she’s Autistic and shows signs of regression; she has full days of summer school too. So this kiddo has been going to school and only complains like every other kid sometimes. Lol I’m on awe because she works so hard to get to the level of her neurotypical peers and doubles up on school and learning. We even do some things with her here at home. So her summer vacation was only a week after the last day of regular school and then she goes all the way into August. Then she gets a couple weeks there until the Fall semester starts. She’s going to be 6 years old in August. She’s my little inspiration. We are so proud of her.

    I’m over 18 & live in the USA. My lovely thing is the view from my living room window-blue sky with puffy clouds, lots of beautiful green trees & puff balls from cottonwoods (I think) that make it look like it’s snowing in 90+ degree weather. Thankful I can stay indoors in the a/c.

    Yesterday I had a wonderful day gettung my niffler tattoo. I went with my friend, who also got 2 tats, my amazing boyfriend, and my lovely aunt. Our artist was great, and allowed my aunt to sit in and watch and ask questions since she is thinking about getting her first tattoo in the future. It was a great day that I loved.

My neice is due in late July or early August, and my other nephew’s girlfriend is due in late August, and they are all boys. So baby shower tomorrow than a family cookout!

    I’m over 18 and live in the US. Today I am spending the day with my beautiful 18 year old daughter and the furry grandbabies.

  • 06/30/2018 at 11:54 am

    I live in the U.S.
    I am over the age of 18
    What’s lovely? that can be sooo many things, I could use flattery, I could use self deprication, I could use something quirky. But honestly, nothing is lovely in my world. I am sitting by my father’s hospital bed, after he has had brain surgery. We are hopeful that his tumor was successfully removed or that we have whatever time that is left. But I can find a lovely peace of mind today. To me, my father isn’t in pain. That is the most lovely thing in the world, right at this moment.

    I got to hear my baby’s heartbeat this week!

  • 06/30/2018 at 9:16 am

    Well, my positive thing was going to be that I finally found a job I love after a year of struggling, but reading everyone else’s positivity, I want to say that is the positive of my day. It makes my soul happy to know other people have some happy too.

    Over 18 in the USA.

    I have a date with my mom this Sunday to learn how to make her homemade melt-n-your-mouth, light-as-air, buttery biscuits and sausage and cream gravy. It’s everything I’ve ever dreamed of.

    It’s now been just over a week since I discharged from the hospital. I’d been inpatient for two months trying to stabilize with my eating disorder. Since getting out, following my meal plan has been a real struggle. But today I was able to eat my meals and snacks. I wasn’t perfect but I was better than I thought I could be. To me that’s big and pretty lovely. I’m proud of myself. After nearly 18 years battling this thing, I see hope. Maybe I can be well afterall.

    I took my 7 year old niece Maddie to the Mall Thursday. Back story. Since she was in preschool she had friends with pierced ears. This past year in first grade all the little girls except her and one other had pierced ears. I never knew how much she envied the earrings the other girls had. She thought she had to have pierced ears to have them. So we stopped in Claire’s and we found clip earrings for girls. The child was thrilled silly that all the cute earrings all her little friends had were in clips. She was lucky it was buy 3 get three free. She got slinklys, dream catchers, peanut butter and jelly, unicorns, and lots of studs. She talked non stop for the rest of the day about them. I wish I did this in the beginning of the last school year. She carried the jewelry box around the next day like they were the crown Jewels. LOL. It was wonderful to see her so happy.

    I am over 18 and a US resident. I have an olfactory disorder after a concussion in which I don’t smell things properly, everything is distorted and stink and many foods taste bad. This week I discovered that Earl Gray tea tastes and smells amazing. So I have a new pleasure where I had nothing before, I am so thankful!

    I finished getting the house ready for my husband to start peritoneal dialysis at home, next week. Everything needs to be extra sterile so I set up our office as his dialysis room. It’s a little tricky with three dogs but he’s worth every minute.

    I’m well over 18 and live in the US

    I am over 18 and I live in the US. I drove up to my house in time to see two wild rabbits nibbling on my airplane grass and chasing each other around my flower beds. I stayed in the car and watched them until they scampered off.

    I’ve struggled with deep depression this year and I often have trouble finding beauty in each day but today I am knitting a scarf and my two little doxies are asleep (one on each side of me). My cat cuddled with me this morning and my partner is home with me today. I have a job interview later and I’m going to make a beautiful dinner with fresh veggies tonight. Today is so good. I hope your day is as truly blessed as mine is

    I’m from the US and am over 18.
    We’re having a major heatwave here in WI, but despite that my fluffy kitty Meeko loves to snuggle under my arm. While I’m sitting on the couch he’ll bury his nose between me and my side and curl up!

    On a sad note, the store I’ve worked in for 9 years will be closing for good on August 9. I’ll be 59 in September, so looking for a new job is a little unnerving. I’m a Phoenix tho, I have survived growing up with asthma, my divorce after 20 years and other health issues over the last 15 years. For the first time in my life, I have confidence in myself and I truly know who I am! I will rise again!! Much love to you Yasmine. Your incredible books have helped more than you will know! Thank you!!
