W is for…

Count your blessings, name them one by one…


I’m using Thursday posts to focus on thankfulness — and instead of counting blessings, I’m challenging myself to come up with them alphabetically.  (You can find the rest of the posts in this series here.)

I suspect some of you thought I’d given up on finishing the alphabetized list of counting my blessings. I promise you that I am committed to finishing this exercise! However, as cliché as it may be — and yes, it is indeed a  cliché — it is also true: I’ve been really busy.  Frankly, I’m going to be really busy through the month of January. After that, I hope to breathe and blog a bit more. (Okay, so I’m still breathing… but not so much blogging. There are over 200 unread posts in my Feedly reader again. *sigh*)  But back to business here…

Welcome to week!


WWW is for the world wide web (that is what it stands for, isn’t it?) and boy, howdy! am I ever grateful for the internet world of friendship and blogging.  Because of blogging, I have met some wonderful people in person and many, many more digitally. I have quite a list in my head of folks I hope to meet “in real life” someday.

Back in April when my computer hard drive froze (just stopped driving, not even my computer guru friends could fix it) I “lost” nearly 18 months worth of photographs. The devastation wasn’t nearly as bad as I originally feared because I had shared so many pictures here with all of you.  Those photographs were saved from digital disappearance — yet another blessing from blogging. Without you, dear Reader, I probably wouldn’t bother with a blog.

W is most definitely for all the wonderful women in my life.  Tonight is my monthly Book Group dinner and discussion, and knowing us, there will be laughter and tears. 

W is also for work. I am grateful for a job that both fits my skills and challenges me.  And that is where I am headed now. I’ll catch up with you as soon as I can!

What are you thankful for this week?
