A few of my many little blessings to count this week:
~A successful first attempt at chocolate biscotti (despite my shaky cooking skills and temperamental oven) and feeling like a gourmet Italian chef.
~Overhearing a little boy at a garage sale tell his mom I was pretty and nice.
~Sitting in the chaise with a cup of coffee as the sun came up.
~Deciding to put my job search on hold unless something fell into my lap, and then getting a letter about a really awesome job opening that I kind of unknowingly already applied for.
~Seeing a bright colored bird that I liked, and then noticing there is one one on the cover of my journal that looks similar.
~My 2 year-old niece singing Eye of the Tiger. (Seriously, she knows all the words. I have it on video.)
~Laughing with Ben about llamas.
~Revisiting an old coffee shop I used to go to with my dad.
~New mini-bagels at said coffee shop to solve the dilemma of a regular bagel being too filling.
~Singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” in church.
~Wearing my twirly skirt.
~Watching my friend’s daughter have her first taste of ice cream ever.
