#celebratelu2014 Powerful Twitter signs

Embedded image permalink

I was trying to figure out what to "celebrate" this Saturday.
My mother has not been doing well
A dear friend is awaiting major surgery
A friend's life changing accident
Gloomy rainy weather
I have lots to do
a late Friday post observation on which to "reflect"
Papers to grade
Pinecones calling
Nordstrom returns awaiting
.My house is a mess
The .the laundry as well as the dust bunnies are reproducing.
The fall weather means I need to find shoes without holes
Then this image popped up on Twitter 
And I stopped and smiled and reflected.

I do want to celebrate!
I am very grateful for Twitter 
And the reminders of life, love, and hope 
It provides, everyday.
I am grateful that my mother is a little better 
In this morning's light.  
I'm grateful for a pop-in observation 
On Friday afternoon, long weekend pending
(the kids put on quite a show).
I am grateful that I know crafting, creating, sewing, sharing,
and dreaming are more important than cleaning.
I am grateful for the energy to do what I can,
The faith to let go when I can do nothing,
The wisdom to know whether to intervene,
To wait, or to pray.

It's so easy to get swallowed up in life. Sometimes we need to take a break and sometimes we just need to write about it. Glad you got a small but important reminder!

Sorry, too many 'funny' errors! I love your twitter reminder, Anita, but also love the part you wrote earlier, a true poem of our lives, & we do keep on, finding the little parts that make it worth it. Have a lovely Sunday!

"The fall weather means I need to find shoes without holes." The fall weather had me scrambling in my closet for shoes to wear with socks. I'm a wimp when the weather gets cooler! Love your last paragraph!

Sometimes it takes a little reminder to shift our perspective, sometimes a bit more light and warmth, and sometimes conscious effort. But the sift is needed to move on from the gray spot in a day or week. I like the twitter comment.
