It's been a rough day. Most of the awesome revolves around the disasters that were averted. But that's a negative so I was floundering for a Good Thing that wasn't in reaction to something else.

I opened my email from a friend. She'd found a great deal on travel to Iceland.  While she knows it's not financially feasible for me to go at this moment, she just wanted me to know that when the time's right, the deal will be there.  Plus, if she wins a buttload of cash, she's sending me to Iceland.

I'm constantly amazed how many people are doing their bit to help me realize that dream.  It's good to know that people think of my happiness even when I'm not.  I am truly blessed.  My friends remind me of that fact every single day in a thousand different ways.

One email changed the entire tone of my post.  I've got a draft that talks about today's good things being holy-crap-that-was-close.  The One Good Thing in that post was a flock of sparrows on the hedge. It would have made a beautiful photograph but I doubt the camera would have seen the feathers on the birds with the same clarity and vibrancy that I did.  So I took several mental images to scroll through the rest of the day. 

Lots of good things today - all reminding me how incredibly fortunate I am.  Thank you for that.

How was your day?


  1. I had a melty pour me off the table massage and came home to find hubby had cooked a lovely dinner for us. Now relaxing with a glass of wine and contemplating an early bedtime.

    All is good chez Stashaholic.

  2. I think I'm a day behind on my good things. Oh well. My good thing is that I took the time today to cut down my monthly bills to eliminate things that I'm paying for but not using. Cell phone bill and internet+cable+homephone bill have been whacked by 1/3 and 1/2 respectively. On my way home, I will finally cancel my gym membership, which I managed to mostly forget about this past year. I also tidied my desk at work this morning!

  3. Oh, Sherri, that sounds wonderful. Note to self, call Arden and book massage. Thanks for the reminder.

    Good job, Theresa! For someone in migraine recovery, you did a lot today.
