    My life is always looked at in a positive way in spite of what is thrown in its path.


      AMEN ANDY ! That positive attitude is a reflection of your positive relationship with GOD ~ BRIAN

    • Michael Edwards

      Positivity - still looking forward to future achievements even in my mid-70s. No vices (apart from wine), exercise every day - very active, always painting, writing, gardening as well as still giving demos, talks, and running art workshops.

          Yes , I see you as having always all of these traits . Praiseworthy indeed , but you left out nonjudgmental which I think you shine .

          • BRIAN & ANGELA

            Thanks FRIEND ~ You are right ~ as an ENCOURAGER (like Barnabus in the Bible) one has to be as nonjudgmental as possible and take our example from the Master "A bruised reed He did not break" ~ "A smoking flax He will not quench" AMEN ~ BRIAN

                Indeed you are an encourager to all you encounter on this site! That's one reason I love reading and writing here. Very nice acrostic! I love all the character traits you wrote about and one more--humor. Gotta have that! ( I see there wasn't anywhere for you too add that ๐Ÿ™‚ Hugs! Have a great day! Christina

                  Thank you CHRIS ~ You are an Encourager as well ! As you say MPS is a nice site and (generally) we all encourage each other. All my poems are "a work in progress" so i am always prepared to make an alteration for someone as lovely as you ! For you and I ~ a sense of humor is very important 24/7 ! Consequently I have altered line TEN to read ~ RESPOND ~ to all negatives with HUMOR. I apologise for serious omission in the original. Thank you ~ Happy Hugs ~ BRIAN
