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) Surviving the week! It's been one of those weeks where the words 'nothing else can happen' weren't allowed to be uttered. But it's over and yesterday, nothing negative happened. So yay for that!
2) Slushies and shakes! Yesterday, the kids and I headed out to the hay barn, got all of those aluminum cans together (we pick the up off of the dirt road leading to our house. People are messy!) and took them to the recycling center. Sure enough, we had enough change to buy everyone a slushie or shake. It didn't hurt that Sonic had a half-price day.
3) My oldest daughter survived the Greyhound bus! She and friends decided to visit one of their mothers and wanted to try the Greyhound. I warned her that it's not exactly the same experience as transportation in Europe. It wasn't a smooth trip, and after a couple bus no-shows they ended up getting back a day late. She has stories to tell (many very interesting indeed!) and has decided never ever ever to ride with the Greyhound again.
What about you? What put a smile on your face? Lick an ice cream cone? Bathe in the sun? Go hopping through wildflowers or receive a friendly wave from a stranger along the street?
What are you celebrating?
