The Best Things This Week

Photo taken from the car :-)
I was looking back at my blog post from February 2013 to see if I could find any ideas for writing this morning. February can be a slow month for road travelers like us. I forgot we took a trip to Newport, Oregon last year until I looked back to that blog post. It was rather sunny and I remember now it really brightened my spirits ... just as much as our recent trip.
 
The best things this week haven't really been things ... it has been more about trudging through another winter and trying to not isolate too much.
 
If I try, I can always find the best in things:
  • It didn't snow
  • The sun was out for a while
  • A co-worker celebrated her 30th birthday
  • My daughter-in-law also celebrated her 30th birthday
  • We went out for pizza with friends last night
  • I have a great weekend lined up including fondue tomorrow night with good friends
Did you have a great week? If you feel inclined, please leave me a comment and tell me about the BEST THINGS from your week.
 
love, susan

  1. Love reading your blog posts. The best things from my week? I am that much closer to getting home to my family. I was able to stay 3 hours in hyperthermia yesterday. I have access to the wonderful technology that is Skype and FaceTime in order to communicate with my family while I am gone. Hope spring comes SOON for you. I will be going home to probably close to 2 more months of winterish weather.

  2. Loved your post Susan. It's usually the simple things that make us most happy...and we often don't even realize it. The best thing from my week? I'm getting to spend an entire week visiting my folks in lovely North Carolina!

  3. Love this! We can always find something good no matter how boring or bad things seem. The best thing from my week has been the time friends have taken to show me they care. It is such a fulfilling feeling and a type of love I could never live without. As long as I have love...I'm never alone. Have a fabulous friday my friend!!!

    1. Some days in February, it's hard to be grateful. But I sure do give a good try!
