My Gratitude/Happiness List: Week of June 29–July 5
I’ll be blogging (or trying to) every day this month, and hopefully having enough posts done in advance so that my hand surgery won’t be an impediment.
My first post is a linkup with Laurel Regan’s Alphabet Salad to share some of the things I’m grateful for and that make me happy at this moment in time.
♥ Getting to meet a Facebook friend from England on her trip to the U.S. and sharing a lovely lunch in Newport.
♥ Having finished all the work I had in advance of my wrist surgery and having almost two weeks free to myself.
♥ Finally having a date for my wrist surgery and looking forward to resolving this problem and being pain free.
♥ My Georgia in-laws—Tim’s dad, sister and brother-in-law, and our four nieces—wonderful people whose family I’m so glad to be part of.
♥ Being able to walk to the stadium of our local Triple-A baseball affiliate, the Pawtucket Red Sox, and enjoy games for a very reasonable price.
♥ Dinner and lunch dates with friends.
♥ Learning that there will again be a free summer concert series along the walking path on Blackstone Boulevard, just blocks from our house.
♥ Classic novels that feature love stories with happy endings—like the one I just finished, Villette by Charlotte Bronte.
♥ The return of WaterFire to Providence.
♥ Being able to walk to downtown Providence, as well as so many other places in our city.
♥ Special arts events like the Womanimation festival featuring short films by women.
♥ A weekend of getting out for long walks and a run.
♥ Always, date nights with my husband!
