blog gushy nonsense if I want to! Because I'm another year older today and feeling thankful for so many things:
~I get to send acceptance letters at work, spreading happiness to smart, underappreciated English profs and grad students of the world.
~My kidlit critique group gave me amazing encouragement on my novel last night, and great ideas for a final polish.
~A character lookalike was on the train this AM. Quality watching done. Check.
~I'm getting a new bike from my hubby! Makes me feel like a giddy kid. :-)
~Greetings on facebook reminded me what amazing friends and family I have.
~I got big hugs from my daughter this morning. A few years ago, she was the anti-snuggle kid who would hit you if you tried to comfort her when she was hurt. This feels HUGE! :-)
~Prepping to teach a co-ed bunch of high schoolers at youth group has me SO excited. The group this year is incredibly engaged, full of questions and eager to learn.
~People actually read and comment on this blog. I'm still amazed that you all keep visiting.
What gives you an attitude of gratitude?
