Welcome to my Friday feature! Created by the wonderful Meggy @ Chocolate ‘n’ Waffles, it’s a remedy against feeling down by creating a list of all the good things happening in my life this week. I became so inspired by her weekly posts and later also that by Nickimags @ Secret Library Book Blog, I felt it was time to begin sharing my own good feelings. It can be anything, from the smallest gesture from a stranger to a major event in your life that alters the direction of your day. Maybe something here will bring a smile to you in the moment.
I know deep in my heart that I have lots to be grateful for in the midst of all the worldwide worry and concern. If I keep my focus on gratitude, I’ll feel its constant presence.
Hurricane Isaias pretty much bypassed the area where our house is located, winds reaching no more than 45 mph. No flooding, no wind damage…what a blessing! Thanks to everyone who reached out with concern🥰
My younger sister joined the family call on Sunday for the first time! We introduced her to two branches of my Mom’s family. It was joyous💜
My dear online friend and co-moderator of two Goodreads groups reached out to me for help last Friday. Her husband was suddenly gravely ill, near death. It took five days for her to contact me with the news that he’d turned a corner and is on the long road to recovery. I was praying daily and those five days were torture but what a blessing💜
We had another conference call with our besties that lasted 1 1/2 hours. It was bliss and we miss seeing them so much.
I FINALLY came out of denial and deleted about six series (most were canceled) I was never going to watch. One had 11 shows in it! Between Hubby and I, we went from 94% to 63% in an instant. I can’t believe how good and unburdened I feel now that they’re gone. No guilt at all🥰
I continue to pause and reflect upon the people and things in my life that truly matter. For that, I’m grateful.
