Here I am again, Monday. So many little things fill me with gratitude. Still, sometimes I feel like I must dig deep to remember. Especially when I feel overwhelmed with deadlines. Soooo… In no particular order:
♣ It’s March. Yes, it’s still cold. I know the worst is over. This week promises to get above freezing and rain. That means a lot of snow will be, well, going down the drain.
♣ I have deadlines. That means someone, two newspapers, in fact, like my writing enough to give me stories to write. I’m getting a steady income. Yes!
♣ I witnessed a historical event this week. A February that never saw a day above freezing. Never-before-seen in 144 years. Not likely to see it again in my lifetime. Hurray!
♣ I spent a Saturday with five grandchildren. We played Wii-U, we made peanut butter sandwiches on banana bread, we put together 10 or more puzzles, we went swimming. What a delightful day!
♣ My bonus grandchild wished me a Happy Birthday and told me she loves me. She is all grown up and has a busy life of her own. This tickles me to the core, and is especially special because she came to me not by birth, but by marriage.
♣ I’m going to the BAM conference in Nashville at the end of the week. Yeah for mid-life bloggers, yeah for warmer weather, and yeah, I’m rooming with a fashion expert. (Okay, that last part is a little scary, but yeah anyways.)
