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) No road trip! Life can be pretty crazy. Really crazy. The trip was cancelled at the last minute, so we changed to a few days of something much calmer and family orientated. Which was lots of fun too—a super-mini holiday with small trips from home.
2) Son's hip fracture nicely healed! For those who might recall, my son broke his hip completely through on the very last mile of the very last run of boot camp/IT training. Luckily, they let him graduate, but he had surgery with three screws put in. Yesterday, he got two thumbs-up from the doctor and can start training again and head to his unit next month.
3) A cheap transmission! My hub's 'hunk-o-junk', (*ahm*) pick-up w/ lots of character, needed a new transmission, but it wasn't worth fixing. A friend of my son just happened to be parting out his old pick-up, and wouldn't you know it? It was exactly the same year and model! So we ended up getting a transmission for very cheap. My son now has a 'winter project' (that's what he's calling it), and my husband can proudly roar (it does roar rather loudly) around town again whenever he gets the urge.
That wraps up this week!
What put a smile on your face? Survive Thanksgiving? Survive the first week of Advent? Sing your favorite holiday song in the middle of the store and draw all sorts of looks from people? (I'm going to have to try this one!) Talk to someone you haven't heard from in a long time? Or did you indulge in a delicious treat this week?
What are you celebrating???
