Pause, Breathe, and Take Stock 2017-14

Some weeks I have a bit of trouble with the taking stock part of this weekly post.  This week is the pausing and breathing part.  It was a great week for me.  A new job, a wonderful turn-out at an Author Showcase, and a chance to visit Mom.  What could be better?

Here, in no particular order, are some more reasons to rejoice:

  • Snow drops blooming around a budding willow tree;
  • My sister-in-law, Cheryl, who gave up part of her birthday to support me at the Author Showcase;
  • Enjoying a Culver’s dinner with Mom & Love-one: walleye, followed by a turtle sundae.  Yummy, and that’s not even counting company that makes me laugh and think;
  • More laughing and thinking with my brother, John, over breakfast;
  • Surprised by old friends at the Author Showcase:  Julie, Kendra, Debbie, Lester, Denise;
  • Meeting new authors and exchanging ideas and encouragement;
  • Bea, who shared a wonderfully sweet memory of sugar rationing during WWII;
  • A wave of daffodils meeting me when I arrived home.

That was just the weekend.

What fills you with gratitude this week? Please share.  You’re always so good at reminding me of all my blessings.
