One Thing - Courtesy of Fresh Blood Lisa

Unfortunately, there has been a bit of bad news in our derby world. First and foremost, one of our teammates Chest Blockwell, suffered a broken ankle last week. She spent several days in the hospital and finally had her surgery. She is thankfully now home recuperating. We love you Chest and wish you a speedy recovery!!

In addition, our ref Jimmy Rage's mom was the victim of a hit and run. She suffered knee and leg injuries, but thankfully will be ok. And, teammate St. Zombie's Fire had her car windows, along with the windows of 49 other cars in her neighborhood, smashed. While trying to clean up the glass from the vandalism, her brother broke his leg.
While all of this news is unfortunate, something good came out of it. The bad news inspired Fresh Blood Lisa to turn things around. After reading all of these posts on our message board she started a new post asking everyone to list one good thing that happened to them or a loved one today. It was refreshing to read all of the positive responses. I feel like so often we lose sight of the good things that we have and all of the great things that happen to us on a daily basis.
Lisa, thank you for starting this! Not everyone got to post an answer yet, but I'd like to share the responses she got thus far.
