OT: Long Time No "See" and A Plea From the Heart
Hey all, I hope you have been well!

I know I haven't been around in a while, I haven't been doing much knitting now that the weather is warmer and my stupid hands have been sweating so much, and, the OT/Gen. Knitting forum merge has had me quite overwhelmed, in all honesty.

I have been keeping busy though, painting the house and doing a ton of baking! Also, (and actually, my main reason for posting this), I have started a new blog I would like to ask you all to check out. Typically I wouldn't promote a blog of mine but I started this blog because I really feel it needed to be started.

The blog is titled "The Good News" and it focuses on the good things in life. There is too much "bad," too much hate, violence and negativity in the news and I am tired of it. The only thing it does is desensitize us and disconnect us from one another even more.

So far the blog is filled with stories of good things people have done for me, and my family, and things I (and my children) have done for others. Just today my post was about a member here that did something for me a couple years ago that touched me greatly. I have more posts too but I am trying to keep it to one or two at a time so I have something new almost daily.

I also encourage people to either comment with their own stories or send me their stories and I will post them on my blog, of course crediting the writer.

I also decided to start Do A Good Deed Day, on May 29th. I describe it on my blog as: "If you don't normally go out of your way to do a good deed (or even if you do), make it a point to on May 29th! Whether it's picking up litter, welcoming new neighbors with homemade cookies, making a donation to a good cause, cleaning grandma's house for her...the possibilities are endless! Please spread the word and encourage your friends and family to join in on Do A Good Deed Day!"

I just think the focus needs to be shifted from the bad to the good. It's too easy to get wrapped up in what is "wrong" and lose sight of all that is "right".

I ask you to please check out my blog and participate in Do A Good Deed Day. More info about Do A Good Deed Day can be found on my blog.
