Celebrating the small things

So through one of the people who have stopped by, I discovered this wonderful thing, a blog hop. I hadn’t heard of it before, but I did a little reading, and I love the idea. You post a celebratory thing – whatever that thing is – on your blog on Fridays.

It’s easy to be a bitcher. I’m pretty good at it sometimes. I have to stop myself, and remind me that I do indeed have a good life, and a lot of my stuff is first world complaints.

I love the idea of celebrating the good stuff! So here goes.

This week, I am kind of back on schedule. I had company last week, and as much as I would love to move in with all those ladies (I’m serious) I am excited to be back to the regularly scheduled program.

This week I made it to all my kids’ stuff. Presentations, gathering the items for the presentations, and a field trip. Plus a doctor’s appointment.

AND – I uploaded my second bit of my serial novel. I’m finishing the next bit today. I also managed to make a decent cover. That’s a feat.

It looks like my novella will be done in a (relatively) timely fashion. Fingers crossed.

What’s your good stuff today? We all have it. Mine are all small. But add them together, and I think, dang. I had a good week.

For those who have lost family in the service of our nation, I thank you. And my thoughts are with you. Being willing to die for something is so damned noble, I don’t have words. Thank you.

We owe it to them to look up, see the small things, and enjoy them.

  1. Welcome to the Celebrate hop! It’s great to hear that things have gone well for you this week – you had fun with friends and took care of all your kids’ commitments. Yay for finishing up the next part of your serial and especially for making a cover. I know from experience that doing that is indeed a major feat and so important. I hope you have a lovely weekend! 🙂

  2. Nice to meet you on the blog hop and yes it does sound like you had a good week – especially getting everything organised for kids’ stuff is hard work without forgetting anything – so a BIG well done! Over here in England, we have a Bank Holiday Monday so an extra day off is always welcome:) Enjoy your weekend Special Teaching at Pempi’s Palace

    1. I love the long weekends, although this one is rather sad to me.
      And yes, getting the kids organized and keeping them that way is an accomplishment anymore!
      Enjoy your weekend as well!

  3. Those are indeed things to celebrate, and I think if more of us could focus on the good, we’d get better at not being so negative…but, there’s often alot of negative around us. LOVE the picture in your banner. I reminds me of Park City…where is it taken?

    1. Sandy – we have a place up in the Rocky Mountains. It was taken from the top of our street (such as it is, LOL!). It’s one of my favorite places to be, which is why I put it on the blog.
