I didn’t celebrate anything last week. My heart and soul died and I was just too devastated. I couldn’t bring myself to celebrate when such a beautiful soul had left Earth. I’ve finally come to terms with his death now and feel it is finally okay to do a little bit of celebrating.
I celebrated finally meeting my great-nephew, Hunter this past week. He is just over 2 years old now. Wednesday was the first time I’ve met him since I returned home from OK. He reminds me so much of his father, Cody, who is a special young man. We share our birthday, so I have a different kind of closeness with him that I don’t have with his siblings. My niece, Katie, also brought over her daughter Abby for me to see again. She is so adorable and has the chubbiest cheeks!
I am also celebrating that tomorrow I will successfully have completed my 2nd year doing the A2Z. This year I tackled two blogs. If you are interested, you can catch up with them here: My A2Zs @ As the Fates Would Have It & Promptly Written
And I am about to celebrate the beginning of May and tackling another project. I will be writing a story a day on Promptly Written with Julia and company @ StoryADay In May.
What are you celebrating this week, dear readers? Feel free to share with me in comments.
Each Friday, I join Lexa Cain and friends for a weekly blog-hop called Celebrate the Small Things, where we celebrate all of those small moments from the week before.
The wonderful co-hosts of Celebrate the Small Things are:
L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge
Tonja Drecker @ Kidbits Blog

I’m glad you’re feeling better. It’s so nice that you were able to spend time with the children. It’s hard to stay down around little ones who are so happy and full of energy. Congrats on finishing A to Z! And good luck with your May stories! Happy writing!
There are times we can’t celebrate, but all the more reason to jump in and do it when we can. Glad you spend time with the family. And congrats on finishing A-Z!
Thank you, so much Tonja.. now that I’ve finished, it’s time to do more visiting than I was able to during the challenge. I look forward to stopping by your blog and visiting 🙂
You completed, the A to Z with two sites? I’m amazed. I didn’t click on the links to the sad stuff.

Thanks, Shelly.. yep two blogs, but one I planned ahead so I really only did one during the month itself. I will be stopping by to check out your A2Z soon.
I’m glad you spent time with family and Hunter and Abby. Children sometimes help put the world in perspective – they’re so innocent and just getting started on life’s ups and downs. Congrats on finishing the A-Z on 2 blogs! Well done! 🙂
Thank you, Lexa 🙂 yes, children do have a way of putting life into perspective 🙂
Glad you’re out of that dark space 🙂
Thank you, Raili 🙂 It’s great to be back in the light 🙂
