Thank you Two Writing Teachers for creating this space for me to share my corner of the world.
I am also celebrating with Ruth Ayres today.
This week my one little word - intent - has been nonexistent. It has been one of those weeks where stress was at an all time high, schedules were not normal, and writing slices and commenting took a backseat to a research paper. (I know you are tired of hearing me talk about that, but you just can't imagine what it has been like.)

~ loving the quiet moments of the present.
~ thankful for the time I will be spending with family celebrating Easter the next two days.

~ hoping that my new slicers will forgive me for missing a day..or two...of reading their words. They do matter to me, but sometimes life just gets in the way.
~ understanding that sometimes when we help our own children, we learn lessons in the process.
~ forgiving myself for not being perfect.
~ worrying less about next week's plans because I have the best teaching partner anyone could ever ask for.
~celebrating this small moment of gratitude.
Have a great Easter weekend, and may you find many celebrations along the way!
