Managing a hop takes an awful lot of work and time (I know: I only helped out a very little) and this wonderful get-together has had an effect on me beyond having to try to think up something to post on a Friday.
It made me:
1. Sit down and take stock of things
2. Notice things
3. Do what a friend called 'Looking For The Blessing'
I would think, It's Thursday: what will I post for Friday? or else I would think This is so nice! I'll talk about it on Friday.
It was a way to really start noticing the good things. I can lump along with the worst of them and find things to grouse about, but this hop made me look up. It has been a blessing.
...so today I'm celebrating her. That's a lot to be grateful for.
And we'll see how things go.
What are you celebrating?
