The amazing Vikki over at Viklit sponsors this weekly meme. Why? Silly question! Not really - no question is silly.
She does it to help remind us that it's the small things in life that make a difference. So think back. . .really hard. . .was there something this week that put a smile on your face? Something tiny?
Well, then go ahead and share!
This week, I'm celebrating. . .
1) Rain! After 7 weeks without a single drop, it finally has started to rain again. Gosh, my cows are happy.
2) You guys! Various people in this writing community have been giving me little ideas, words of encouragement, and little tidbits, which have really made a difference in my writing and attitude this week. Thank you!
3) My husband's birthday! For the first year ever, he didn't mope around about getting older. But he didn't have time. We spent the day at Wilson's Creek (south of Springfield, MO) and learned about the 2nd official battle of the Civil War.
This family hid in their cellar when the North and the South decided to have at it in the cornfield - uninvited. Personally, I would have been so angry at both sides for ruining my land, I think I would have gotten my cast iron skillet and hit a few of them over the head.
Poor kids. Could you imagine hiding in the cellar like that?
(Yes, it was a very sobering moment to see the battlefield where a couple thousand men had died. . . ugh, can I add that my youngest son searched the dirt hoping to find traces of blood so he could analyze it with his microscope???)
My oldest was hoping these were made of bronze and was dreaming of playing bank robber.
Seriously, what's wrong with my kids?
BUT after we survived the battlefield national park, we headed home where hubs received a very special present from my older son.
A campfire coffee pot, so he can make original cowboy coffee.
Hubs says that surprisingly enough, the coffee grounds floating in the cup aren't really that irritating.
I'll take his word for it.
So what about you? What wonderful things did you experience or see or hear or taste or smell or feel ...*takes deep breath* what put a smile on your face?
