Celebrating... You!

Today I'm raising a glass / smiling while contemplating / cheering for / quietly appreciating something truly worth celebrating.  For me, anyhow:


I started blogging a while back just for something to do.  It was enjoyable - and then I started meeting other people who had blogs about all sorts of things - families, crocheting, collections of inspiring snippets, whether about the Chelsea Flower Show or travel.  Writers who do other things than shout about buying their books.  Helpful people, enjoyable people, people I would probably invite to my home for dinner.  Once it was cleaned to my satisfaction.

People celebrating, people sharing, people just being...people.

You're worth celebrating, folks!

This blog hop is the brainchild of the delightful VikLit, whose blog is well worth visiting whether or not it's Friday and you are celebrating.  Every week that participants can, they stop, take stock, recognize that life is full of small celebrations that go unnoticed, and they celebrate.  The participants are on the list - look around - celebrate!  And maybe join?  You'd be welcome!

  4. Hi Diana .. I totally agree - I love blogging and the people it releases into my world!

    Funny you should have posted the Kitchener photo - he was one of the reasons Julian Fellowes wrote Downton Abbey ... his wife is a close relative and couldn't inherit due to our primogeniture way of life for the landed gentry ...

    I have written quite a long reply to you .. in the comments section ..

    Really appreciated your comment - that's what makes blogging fun ..

    Cheers Hilary

  8. Thank you, Diana, for your positive thoughts. I was just musing about some "people" on Pasha's blog--but it wasn't all that happy. So, your uplifting words are good for my bruised writer's soul.
