Proof Positivity: Validation

me4

“Are you still blogging?” My husband would ask with a sneer.  For almost a year he has been asking me this question with a negative attitude.  Last night was different.  “Are you still doing that blog?”  He asked with genuine intrest.  “Proof Positivity?  Yes, I do my personnal blog when ever and Proof Positivity Monday- Friday except today because it’s Thanksgiving.”  I said.  “I want you to keep doing that.”  I looked at him in shock and asked if he was ok.  I have gone all this time without my husband’s support.  He says “Nothing’s wrong with me.  You are doing a good thing and the world doesn’t have enough of that.”  My husband has a tendency to think negative first so this was a real surprise to me that he suggest PP goes on.  It made me feel good that finally, he acknowledges what I do.

Anyhow, I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I most certainly did.  Last night I watched a special presentation of “The Incredibles”  on NBC.  It seems to me that things like that used to begin at a decent hour like 6:00 PM and end at the latest 9:00.  No, this started at 8PM and ended at 10:30 PM.  I wanted to send my kids to bed and there was no way I could they would have gone kicking and screaming.

Hoop Dreams

2,057  Children are orphaned by the AIDS epidemic every day.  Nine year old Austin Gutwein wanted to play on a basketball team.  He didn’t make the team.

Austin had a pen pal from Africa and decided to learn as much as he could about Africa.  This includes educating himself about AIDS.

“I know it is a disease that when it gets to parents it kills them,” says Austin.

“I really started to think about what it would be like if I lost my parents,” he says.

He began to shoot basketball for charity.  On his first go he earned $3,000.

“I was shocked,” says his father Dan Gutwein. “People donated that we never met before.”

Austin got in touch with World Vision and he and 1,000 other children raised $38,000.  One person can make a difference.  It has to start with one before more can help.
