Celebrating Today


vik - small things 2

Join us every Friday as we Celebrate The Small Things, thanks to our host VikLit and my fellow co-hosts Diana Wilder, LG Keltner@Writing Off the Edge, and Katie@TheCyborg Mom!

So what am I celebrating this week?

First off, I’m sick again, so that really isn’t something to celebrate about.

Second, editing is going verrrrrry slow.

Thirdly, my sleep pattern is whacked … which means a lot of reading (so that is kind of good, I suppose).

But today was a good day, and not in the kind of something big happened that made it really good. It was just … good, in a lot of small ways. And crazy busy as it was, it’s the kind of day that leaves you feeling more energized than tired; when even being sick takes a backseat to the general feeling of the day. So even if it hasn’t been a good week, it has been a good day–and that is good enough for me.

Whatever happens tomorrow, we had today – David Nicholls (One Day)

Do you appreciate each day as they come? What are you celebrating this week, or for that matter, today?


P.S. I just learned that the A-Z team is hosting a Sunflower Tribute for Tina Downey on Sept 8. Tina passed away on August 23 and she loved sunflowers. Please help spread the word and let’s brighten the internet on Sept 8 with sunflowers, in memory of Tina!

    Thanks for mentioning the tribute for Tina.

  4. Sorry to hear that you are sick. My sons started to get sick, too, so I had them both gargle with warm salt water a few times. It’s an old fashioned remedy, but it works. My older son stayed home from school for 1 day this week and only has a slight cough now. The warm salt water killed the germs in his throat pretty quickly. Do it at least twice a day and your cold should be gone fairly quickly. I hope you fell better soon!

  5. I’m not sleeping well right now either. It’s never a good thing when the body doesn’t get enough rest. Hope that changes soon.

  6. So sorry about your being sick. That’s not something anyone enjoys. You have a great attitude, though. Here’s to being well soon.

  7. Glad you’re having a good day, at least. Feel better soon and have a better rest of the week.

  8. I’m sick in bed today myself. But I wrote my celebration post. And have been visiting blogs today.

    Hope you feel better.

  9. I’m glad you had a good day despite everything. Good luck with your editing, and I hope you feel better soon.

  10. Sorry you’ve not been feeling well but glad you had a good day. Hope the weekend gets even better for you πŸ™‚

  11. How positive of you to celebrate even when you are feeling sick. Very inspirational πŸ™‚ Hope you are feeling better and enjoying the rest of your weekend!

  12. Small things add up to a good day, even if there’s other “stuff” that isn’t so good. Hope you feel better soon!

  13. I hope you’re better now and the editing is picking up!
