A Simple Thought ~ Celebrate 2017 (thirteen)

Each week Ruth Ayres extends an invitation to share the celebrations from our week. 

I can't believe it has been a month since I have written a blog post.  While participating in the March Slice of Life challenge, I felt like I did more slapping of words on paper than actually writing.  To some people, "slapping words" is still a form of writing.  But I want more than that.

The words have been floating around in my head, but none have made their way out.  

My page is blank.

I have been absent in my writing communities:  Slice of Life, Celebrate this Week, Poetry Friday, Spiritual Journey Thursday.  I have missed them, but it hasn't been enough to pull me out of my word drought.

Until today.

I thought about writing a celebration post.  I actually had an idea worth writing about.  After I opened my computer and found my way back to my blog, I saw I had a new comment. (I don't check my gmail account which gives me comment notifications.)  

It was a simple message.  

Ironically, Loralee has done this before. She seems to know just when I need a boost.

Take some time today to let someone know you are thinking of them.  It might just be what they need to celebrate once again.


  1. Thinking of you and hoping you're having a relaxing Saturday!

  2. Oh Leigh Anne, it is a reminder to me of how amazing God works and leads... and how we are always on His mind.

    You were on my mind. I'm so glad I told you.

    Thank you for sharing this. It warms my heart so much.

    1. Loralee, it is so wonderful that you become the messenger to bring Leigh Anne back to our writing community.

  3. So glad to see you here. I recently picked up a milk jug with my sister's birthday as the expiration date (and of course, I thought of you). Glad that Loralee's comment gave you the boost you needed to join us today!

  4. Leigh Anne,
    The power of personal connections . . . that has kept me going the last couple of months!

    and yes, I had some "slapping words" during March. . . cringe-worthy for sure!

  5. Well, I'm blessed by the lovely exchange between you, Leigh Anne, and Loralee. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  6. I can relate to the pause. After the challenge I felt empty and it was difficult to get back to writing. Amy's book indpired me yesterday. Glad that you found inspiration to return.

  7. Thanks for this simple message. I needed it.

  8. Leigh Anne, I am so glad that you are back in the fold again. As far as slapping words together, you did much more than that. You were the one that created the virtual party. It was a grand gesture of bringing a community together.
