It's time for another edition of. . .
CELEBRATE THE SMALL THINGS!
This is a weekly blog hop sponsored by the amazing Lexa Cain, and co-hosted by L.G. Keltner from Writing Off the Edge and myself. Every week, wonderful things happen, tiny things, which make us smile. But as time grabs us up, we forget all about those moments. This is the chance for us to reflect back on those and remember that there are tons of things worth celebrating.
If you'd like to join in and add a little more joy to your week, then go ahead over to Lexa's or simply pop by the linky below!
This week, I'm celebrating. . .
(I have a bit of a cold this week and my head feels like it's floating among the clouds. In other words, if something sounds a bit silly or off below, please excuse me *coughcough*)
1) Quiet nights! After it gets dark in the evening, I grab my flashlight and head outside to close up the chicken coop (no chance for you, pesky possums!). The rest of my family finds this task irritating, but I love it and take it on freely. Outisde, it's so quiet. Peaceful. And since we don't have any city lights or anything around, the stars are always amazing. These few moments are something I treasure.
2) Awards and my son's beaming face! This time, my youngest son stood in the spotlight. He brought home a pile of certifications for being on the 'A' honor role and student of the month. Of course, after telling me how happy he was, he had to remind me that he deserves a BIG treat.
3) Roses! Okay, they aren't mine - literally speaking. But who's being picky? My daughter's boyfriend is on a roll with fresh cut flowers. Tulips last week for Valentine's. This week, it's a dozen white roses with a touch of red on the edges. Why am I celebrating? Because she puts them in a vase and leaves them on my kitchen island right where I can see them. Since she's a busy girl and never home, I'm the one who gets to gaze and smile at them all day. I wonder what he'll give her next week???? (Just kidding.)
And what about you? What put a smile on your face this last week? Get hit by that nasty storm? (Hmmm...maybe that's not something to celebrate). How about a delicious coffee or tea? A yummy cookie? Did you get something done, you didn't think you would?
What are you celebrating?
