Yay for Celebrate the Small Things!

This weekly blog hop is sponsored by the amazing Lexa Cain, and co-hosted by L.G. Keltner from Writing Off the Edge and myself. 

What exactly are we celebrating?

Every week, wonderful things happen, tiny things, which make us smile. But as time grabs us up, we forget all about these moments as if they never existed at all. This is the chance for us to reflect back on those and remember that there are tons of things worth celebrating.

It's been a rough week. . .my husband's company decided to not pay the employees their wages and gave no notification. So we're scrambling to find a solution, since there aren't many job possibilities here in the middle of nowhere, it's a bit frustrating. Good-bye sleep!

In other words, it's a super YAY for Celebrate the Small Things!!!

This week, I'm celebrating. . .

1) My daughter was on the radio yesterday morning! She's quite the social butterfly, so there's a little story behind this. A man came to pick up his wife at the gym where my daughter's cheer leading squad practices, and said daughter overheard that he works at out small town radio station. So she ran up to him and said, "How about making me famous?" He agreed (with some banter, I'm told) and asked her to come by this morning to discuss cheer leading, the up-coming pep-rally and the big games this weekend. . . that would be good news number two: her school's boy's basketball team is playing at State this weekend. It was fun to listen to her. I admire her pep and out-going attitude.

2) My oldest son swore in to the National Guard Reserve on Wednesday! He's been planning and informing himself for a year now, and finally figured out how to work it all in with his college plans. We're proud of him.

3) Another baby calf! This one is white and gray. . .and of course, oh so cute!

4) Starting the third writing/editing project this year! I've been in a writing slump the past couple of years. This year, I'm determined to up the game and send those pages flying into the world. Lol! It's sad how often I have to remind myself of this goal and force myself to hold to it--I'm going to need my son's drill Sergeant.

What about you? What are you smiling about this week? Did you get a chance to work-out? Buy a lovely pen or notebook? Drink a delicious beer? Wash those windows. . .whoa! Wait up! That's not a smiling thing. . .Find someone to wash those windows for you?????

What are you celebrating this week?
