Chances are if the first thing you do when you wake up is turn on the news the first thing you will hear will be something negative. You will hear stories about scandals, violent crimes, and everything negative.

This morning I wanted to start my day on a positive note. Rather than flip on the TV first thing like I always do I grabbed my pad and typed positive news. Wow! It worked.

Today on NBC featured a story about the sacrifices a young 24-year-old African-American man made to show his appreciation to his grandparents.

To show his appreciation to his grandparents for raising him he wrote them a $15,000 check to pay off their mortgage and finance a trip.  This is a very inspiring story. I hope it makes you feel as good as it makes me feel.
