These are the posts that I live for because you know that someone, perhaps many someone’s, are bound to be happy by the end of them. There is nothing deep to this kind of post, but I love nothing more than to give back to my readers with some recognition and prizes.
So here goes…
Ashley’s post about finding a creature comfort in a foreign land was just delightful. How many of us can relate to wanting to experience a little piece of home when we’re in a different place? It’s amazing how much the little things in life can mean to us when we may not have them. A simple treat can turn a crappy day into one of peace and happiness. Behold the power of peanut butter!
Caitlin’s descriptive post about the joyful world of reading captured everything that makes one of my favorite hobbies so enjoyable. What a wonderful gift to be able to escape into the universe of a story, to ride into battle with the elves or attend a ball with the Bennett sisters. Having long been a fan of the written word since my first Baby-Sitter’s Club book (#13 Good-bye Stacey, Good-bye), I could identify with this post in more ways than one.
As someone who is struggling to savor the present, Prithi’s post about relishing each day was just what I needed to read. Her helpful tip of keeping a journal to capture the highs and lows of each day is something I just may start doing. It’s easy to say “savor today,” but it’s harder to actually do so without some pointers. A great post to remind you to appreciate each day for itself and learn that in doing so, you can appreciate much more than just the one day.
