Fabulous Friday is my day to take a look back at some of the tiny but fabulous things that happened in my week. Taking the time to do this lets me focus on the positive and reminds me to be grateful for ALL things. And I believe that makes the good multiply!
I only worked 3 days this past week and I took 2 days of vacation to hang out with the hubby since he was on vacation all week. It was a busy, busy 3 days! But I’m happy to say that I’m at a better place with my job. Maybe it has been me putting all the things I don’t like about it back behind me (sometimes, I have to stop and do this several times a day) or maybe it is realizing that I’m doing all I can. Things are starting to click. Relationships are starting to grow into partnerships. And that makes me happy. Oh, there is a long way to go…but what a long way I have come!
On Friday, we went with my sister out to First Monday in Canton…the state’s(and possibly the world’s) largest flea market. We had such a good time! I am amazed at how much I love all the old stuff now! LOL I guess there comes a time when we all wish for the things of our youth and I mean going way back to childhood. We stayed in the back…where the garage sale stuff is at. Where porcelain pails remind me of my Grandma Kristof’s house, ashtrays and coffee cups that remind of my Grandma Bradley, and pyrex bowls, corning wear, cookie jars and hard case sets of luggage remind me of the house we grew up in. Funny how the memories came flooding back…seems like me and my sister were constantly saying “Remember this?” What a wonderful day of shopping, looking and reminiscing.
I’m taking baby steps on going green. I have given up paper plates, plastic cups, the paper coffee travel cups and plastic bags. It feels good to know that I’m putting less trash into the can…and that makes me smile. Other things, I’m recycling…dry cleaning bags. One thing I don’t think I can give up yet (and possible ever)? The paper towel. But I’ll think on it.
You know those moments when your heart starts beating faster and your breathing quickens? That is how I feel when God is speaking to me…directing my path. You just KNOW it’s right. Saturday morning I was catching up with my bloggy friends and their posts. I came across Jen Zimmerman’s post (my angel for the week) about Jess Morrow’s writing class and before I could knew it, I was signed up. Breathlessly frightened that I still have no business in the blogging space but excited to tap into my own inner strength…I’m being brave and looking forward to June 1st and writing my way through summer!
Other moments of wonderful were a mani/pedi and lunch with my mother and dinner with Ricky’s parents. We are so blessed to have both of our parents still with us for this part of our life! And things like sitting on the patio and just talking brings joy to my heart. These moments of togetherness are not lost on me.
See how the little things start to add up? It’s like the days are sprinkled with little sparks to help keep the fire within you burning. And that reminds me that I want to live fiercely! What are you doing to live fiercely? What are the sparks that kept you going this week? Tell me about it in the comment section and we can burn brightly together!
Have a fabulous week!
