I need some poems, Bible verses, anecdotes, sayings about having a positive attitude.

Recommended Posts

I would like to share some of these kinds of things periodically with someone I correspond with (Facebook & e-mail & occasionally in person) who is a continual whiner about EVERYTHING and never sees the bright side -- never bothers to look for it. I'm tired of hearing it, and instead of saying so, I figure it's better to just share something positive with this person than to argue with her about it.
