I thought it might be good for the (my!) soul to reflect on the past week and recall my favorite moments, in a weekly update called “Thursday Favorite.” It’s a practice in gratitude, and a chance to look back in the short term (because it’s that long-term look back that can be crazy making!).
This week has been eventful – good fortune is coming my way. Yet, two smaller moments come to mind.
It really is the small stuff.
A phone call with an old friend – we had worked together years ago – covered all the important life topics –raising kids, forgiveness, generosity, and where to get good legal help when you need it. I hung up feeling restored.
A perfectly ordinary walk home from the neighborhood coffee shop rendered me grateful. For some reason as I approached my house with Mandy the lunatic dog perched on the fence eagerly awaiting my arrival, I was overcome with a tremendous sense of gratitude. For the life I have and the life I have been able to live. Even my tiny corner house looked especially cheerful and welcoming to me. I felt not an ounce of scarcity.
(Here’s me with my lunatic in the backyard. Love my girl.)
What are your favorite moments of the week? It’s always good to look back over the last few days and take a deep breath. Share your favorite bits of your week with me, please!!
