This post is a mashup of The Little Bliss List and Joy Jam, and as such is meant to celebrate: the little things that brought me hope and happiness this week, the sweet stuff of life, those small gifts that brought me joy this week. By sharing them, I not only make public my gratitude, but maybe also help you notice your own good stuff and send some positive energy out into the world.
1. Dexter getting to see another snow. Like I said yesterday, I didn’t think he’d still be here when it started to snow, but there he is, having another good day and getting snowed on.
2. Friends willing to remind me who I am, to love who I am.
3. The first bite. After that, things can get weird, but that first bite is always magic, alive with flavor.
4. Snow tires.
5. Classroom community in my Writing Online, writing for the web class. I am so grateful for the way they work together, helping each other and working together to figure things out, celebrating and laughing. I’m grateful for how easy it is to hang out with them, how much they are learning.
Bonus joy: my little family, and another week of us all together.
