I was at a party over the weekend where the Host requested that each attendee tell ONE thing that happened in 2009 that they thought was good/great/wonderful.  Several of the people replied " NOTHING good happened to me in 2009!"

We've heard all the excuses. I'm too busy, I don't have extra cash, I don't know what to do, I don't know who to help, yada,yada, yada.... but if we all just help one individual or just one family, imagine how fabulous it would be!
