Every Friday, the Little Bliss List provides a chance for us to celebrate the little things that brought us hope and happiness this week. I do believe when we focus on the sweet stuff of life, the sweet stuff multiplies. And by sharing those small gifts in our lives, we help others notice the gifts in theirs. 

I ran across this collection of Twitter pics from my feed and it was so fun to reminisce about fun moments from a few months ago. It was good to be reminded of lots of good times because this has been a craaaaazy week. A good chance to flex my gratitude muscles in the middle of chaos…

1) I am grateful for lots of little miracles after Tru got hit in the ear by a baseball bat. It was super scary and he was so brave in the ER. For instance, we’re so lucky the bat hit his upper ear and not his head or eardrum. I was so thankful {once again} for the amazing staff at our Children’s Hospital. And, of course, I’m incredibly grateful that he’s okay!

2) Feeling blessed for access to great dental care for Brad, who just learned he’ll get all four of his wisdom teeth taken out on Monday. Ouch!

3) Speaking of Brad, it’s his birthday today! I’m picking him up at work for a lunch date; I love sharing quiet meals together because our family is so busy that it’s hard to find decent talk time.

4) I caught a movie with my mom last night: Moonrise Kingdom. It’s one of those films that grows on you; I think I love it even more today than I did last night! I don’t get to the theater often, so it was fun to share that with her.

5) Today’s the last day of my third edition of the Build a Blog You Truly Love ecourse. The students have been so delightful and teaching the course continues to be a great joy. And I’ll have some really exciting news about it to reveal very soon!
Even if you, too, have had a nutty week…let me know what little bits of bliss edged their way in! Share your own little bliss list in the comment section or via your own blog – and please visit others who post their bliss here {just click on their photos below}!
