My Gratitude/Happiness List (March 10, 2014)
I am again linking up with Laurel Regan’s Gratitude List with my own Happiness/Gratitude List to share what I am grateful for and what made me happy during the past week:
☺ One of my older blog posts about my mother being featured in Woven Tale Press (many thanks to Sandra Tyler!)
☺ Fresh bread from our neighborhood bakery.
☺ Another “date night” with my husband: dinner, seeing Nebraska, and having dessert out afterward.
☺ Being involved in the prayer shawl ministry at church.
☺ That a good friend’s husband, who had a stroke just before Christmas, is now again able to get out and take his morning walk for coffee at Dunkin’ Donuts.
☺ Having had a spurt of energy yesterday and cleaning my bathroom and kitchen floor!
☺ Reading the latest Writers Ask issue and feeling the itch to write again.
☺ That my husband is taking care of getting all our tax information together for the accountant.
☺ A nice quiet Sunday evening spent with my husband, having leftover vegetable stew (yum!) working on two crossword puzzles, reading the paper, and listening to the Billboard Top 100 from 1976 (not such a good year, though—remember “Disco Duck”?), with our dog curled up on the couch.
☺ Going to the next-to-last Brown University basketball home game.
☺ An unexpected Facebook conversation with a cousin beginning with his posting a great old song, “Darkness, Darkness” by the Youngbloods, touching on theology and philosophy, then to remembering our lost family members.
☺ Daylight Savings Time!
