It’s been a just-kill-me-now migraine sort of day, so I was thinking about not posting today. But then I started feeling a little better – as long as I don’t move around, and decided that I can at least do a small post, because even with a migraine, I still have so much to be grateful for.
Gratitude #1 – The LDStorymakers Convention
It’s not really “The Learning Disabled Storymakers Convention,” which is what it looks like to me the way they write it. It’s the LDS Storymakers Convention, and it was just what I needed to get my book-writing mojo back. I still have a lot of other things going on in my life right now that I have to pay attention to, but I feel more empowered and encouraged that I am able to make the most of smaller bits of time. A little everyday will get me farther than a lot seldom done.
Gratitude #2 – My Writing Friend Who Went With Me
It was so nice to have someone to talk to about the different classes we went to at the Storymakers Convention and process what we’d learned. She had some really encouraging experiences at this conference, which also encouraged me. I love seeing people I know succeed, because it helps me to understand more clearly that I can do it too. Also, It was nice to have someone to suffer the food with and to run away with so we could find some “real food”.
Gratitude #3 – Mr. Hot Stuff Went There and Back Again Safely
Mostly I’m grateful for the “back again” part, but I’m also thankful that he’s got good work that sends him “there”.
Gratitude #4 – No One Died, or Got Maimed, or Starved While We Were Gone
I’m so glad I have offspring I can trust to work together and help each other out. Not to mention buy food and cook, so that they can be happy.
Gratitude #5 – Books
There was a bookstore at the Storymakers Convention. I promise I did not buy one of each book, although I wanted to.
Gratitude #6 – Home
Is there any better feeling than coming home to people you know love you and missed you?
Gratitude #7 – Cameras
How wonderful it is to be able to take photos of the moments we want to remember, or look through a lens and learn to see things a new way.
