Celebrate Good Times, Come On! - #1
I am ever so grateful to Ruth Ayres for inviting us to share and celebrate events, big or small, from our week.
It has been almost a month since I have written a celebration post. I hope to change that in 2015 because celebrating the small things is such a big thing. After I reveal my one little word on Slice of Life Tuesday, my celebrations will take a slightly different turn.
But for today, I celebrate my grandma. My grandma is 90 years old and has lived a hard life. She has been divorced, raised six children on her own, and lost her youngest just a few years ago to cancer. But my grandma is a trouper and I love "Granny-ma" dearly.
My grandma also has dementia and with each passing day, a little of her memory is being taken away. I celebrate her and the Christmas we spent together as a family. Looking ahead, I know in my heart it was a special one.
I also celebrate returning to school for a new semester. I love new beginnings and there are so many things I want to do and change this second part of the year. My daughter Megan will begin her student teaching on Monday too! The anticipation of the return is building and I am excited for both of us.
Happy New Year everyone and may your year be filled with many celebrations!
