As part of my inaugural post for Celebrate the Small things hosted by Lexa Cain, I want to end things on a great big happy note on this dazzling Friday.
I’m truly thankful for a few things this week:
1) I finished Modern Lovers, by Emma Straub. It took me a little while to get invested in this novel. I had a hard time relating fully to the characters, but I’m glad I finished the story
2) I was more mindful this week. There were a few moments where the stress of all the activities I have going on mounted. In those times, I took a little time out for myself. When I was at work, I took a little walk around my floor. At home I did stretches and read. When all else failed, my husband would embrace me and comfort me.
3) My puppies were so loving this week. Along with my husband, the little ones seemed to sense how stressed I was, and laid on either sides of me while I was in bed. It made me very happy to wake up with a little wet nose nudging my shoulder.
What are you celebrating this week?
