I'm celebrating unexpected moments this week that pulled me up by my bootstraps and kept me going. A phone call from a dear friend who I haven't talked to in a few months. We text every now and then to just let each other know we're thinking of each other. But this week, I sent a long text (which I tell my mom isn't the correct use LOL) but I wanted her to know how impressed I was with a recent project and how her words touched my heart. Two minutes later, my phone rang. It was reassuring to hear the sound of her voice. In my busy world, I truly appreciate when friends pick up the phone to talk. That 10 minute phone call helped me smile and lifted my spirits.
My second celebration is one about honesty. It's hard sometimes to be honest with a friend especially a friend that you value and respect. I sent a Voxer message to a colleague about an event we were suppose to be attending, and I decided not to go. After I sent my "vague" message, she voxered (is that a word?) back and told me why she wasn't going either. We both had the same reason and better yet we both were able to discuss our thoughts which was worth a $100 therapy session to me.
My final celebration is this photo that I captured as we were walking to our Veterans Day assembly. A second grader was struggling with tying his Cub Scout knot, and KC got of line and stopped to tie it for him. Totally without any prompts! That is a true celebration and the Boy Scout Way!!! Thanks Ruth for encouraging us to to celebrate. I am excited to read other posts. Happy Saturday friends.
