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. 

Oh, gosh. Where do I even begin? This time a year ago, we were camped out in the ICU with my dad and, to be honest, the memories of that surreal and devastating week have been crashing in on me lately. But I’m so grateful for the bliss that has appeared, too, providing much needed relief and important reminders of what’s good…so, so good.

What a blessing it was to start the week in a literal huddle of soul sisters. My three hour drive home was a real gift; a chance to cry and reflect and cry some more, with gorgeous autumn trees lining the road home.

My spirits were buoyed by kind hearts and dear friends this week – from a marathon Skype session with this lovebug to a surprise gift on my doorstep from this one.

I finally wrote down some of my favorite Truman quotes in this book; he is becoming so much more verbal and cracking us up! You guys? Instead of “forever and ever,” he says “ever-to-ever.” Ohhh, he melts me. Meanwhile, Ryder has fallen in love {finally!} with reading and it’s such a delight to watch. Proud mama here.

And I felt so inspired to create new art this week. Even have a new idea I’m excited about experimenting with, which is the best feeling.

So, overall things are good – and I know I’m truly blessed. What about you?? Got bliss to share?
