Every Saturday I get the opportunity to celebrate the week over at Ruth Ayres' blog,
Discover. Play. Build. Thank you! It's become a highlight of my blogging week!
I thrive on routine. It brings me comfort and security. I do enjoy straying from the routine...but I confess when the change in routine is out of my control, sometimes I struggle. Snow changed my routine this past week...a lot! No school. ALL WEEK! When I felt anxious, I focused on celebrating...so here I am sharing my celebrations...
I turned 42 this week. I'm celebrating my forties! I get it now. I think it took me a couple of years to get it, but I must say I love being in my forties! I truly believe it's the best time of my life...so far.
I am the most un-artistic woman alive...but I love it...like I can't carry a tune and I have no rhythm, but I cherish music! Anyway, I went to a painting class with some friends. I decided to have fun, no matter what I painted. I did. AND, I love my painting! The instructors at Uncork'd Art were wonderful!
Three: Giggles and chatting
This week gave me the opportunity to sit...I mean really sit...with friends and just be. It reminded me of the loooooooong lunches in college where we'd talk for hours and solve all of the problems of the world. We don't do that much anymore. Lunch on my birthday was filled with hours of talking and laughing. Yesterday, my friend Heather and I went to Wegmans to work. We got so silly! I love trusting someone enough that you can be SILLY and GOOFY with them.
Four: Random Acts of Kindness
My birthday celebration was to perform random acts of kindness. SUCCESS! I'm working on a post focused just on that...and those acts aren't over...I'm still going.
Thank you to Ruth! Celebrating makes me reflect on my week and brings me joy. Sharing it here with this community is a gift I treasure!
