Celebrate the Small Things

 It's time for another edition of. . .


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.

This week, I'm celebrating. . .

Hot tubs! Actually, I'm not a huge hot tub fan, but my parents have gotten theirs up and running. So to help them celebrate their new relaxation, I jumped in yesterday. The tub itself is fine, but the view was amazing. As I was sitting there, bubbles popping all around, I gazed across a stone, ranch BBQ grill to a pasture of grazing horses and, beyond that, the hills of a National Forest covered with budding Dogwood trees. And I realizedthat no matter what other worries I might have (and I do have them), we are blessed.

And that's all I'm getting out today, since I'm off in a rush.

What about you? What put a smile on your face this last week?
