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.
This week, I'm celebrating. . .
1) Getting a short story worked out! I had some plot issues that were refusing to slide into place, but it's finally fitting together. I might get this thing written after all!
2) An email, in which coming up, possible publication dates were mentioned. I know this is nothing huge, but it always makes me smile and feel a little excited to see that the date is drawing near and will really happen. It's not always a sure business—as well all know—and although I didn't doubt this one, that email still just brightened my day a little bit more.
3) Pumpkins! A farmer has a flatbed trailer full of very large, bright orange, gorgeous pumpkins set- up in town. I haven't bought any yet (I will soon), but I love driving by and gazing at them. Especially since he has big pots of colorful mums scattered in between. It's a beautiful sight. . . WHICH I should take a picture of and post for you guys to see. (Lol! and so the thoughts hit)
4) Being taken out to lunch! My son and I ventured to the big city this week to buy a few items I can't get here in town, and we used the opportunity to go out for lunch. His treat (which is SO sweet!). Anyway, it was a buffet with the most lovely, enormous dessert section I've ever seen. So after eating tons of veggies (that's me being healthy first), I plundered that section and even had several extra helpings of fudge and pecan pie. As an extra bonus, they had bags of pink cotton candy, which my son and I grabbed for his younger siblings, who were stuck in school.
Now, I know where to go for my sugar rush.
So, what about you? What put a smile on your face this last week? Take a stroll through the pumpkin patch? Drink a lovely cup of tea? Have some time to simply sit and enjoy the world?
What are you celebrating this week?
