Appreciation Day 14/28

Half way through my 28 days of appreciation!

Discovered a nice little cafe.

Super friendly service and great coffee!

Hope to be back again next time I am in town.

My Valentine

You send me love songs.

I send you drawings.

Happy Valentine’s Day my love.

Appreciation Day 13/28

My almost 11 year old niece is an aspiring opera singer.

There are certain times of the day when she will most definitely be flexing her vocals.

I appreciate children’s unabashed passion for what they enjoy and their ability to just be in the moment anytime, any day and anywhere.

Appreciation Day 11/28

I showed my niece Chloe my recent drawings, and she said, I want to watch you draw.

So I drew a doodle of myself, then she said, now add a sunflower next to you!

She told me that she is my sunflower, always smiling.

I am thankful to have this little girl in my life.

Appreciation Day 9/28

I have joined the backpack brigade.

After complaining about a sore back, my daughter suggested I try using a small backpack on my days off and travel days to alleviate the stress on my shoulders.

And now I love my backpack!

Appreciation Day 7/28

This year, one of my goals is to finish the entire Harry Potter series – seven books in total.

My daughter has been trying to convince me for years to read them.

I finally started at the end of last year, and so far am really enjoying it!

The joy of reading is something that I appreciate.

Even in the age of Netflix, it’s still a wonderful feeling to curl up in bed with a good you don’t want to put down.

Appreciation Day 6/28

This all started over a FaceTime chat with my dear friend Deane.

She had the idea of doing a 28 day challenge and to share it amongst friends.

Hers is along health, fitness, family, friends and self care.

I wanted to draw again.

I am thankful for long distance friends.

And thankful for FaceTime that allows us to connect.

Appreciation Day 5/28

I appreciate modern technology.

The air purifier that you strongly encouraged me to get has made a world of difference.

I no longer wake up sneezing. My breathing is so much better.

And even my little dog has not been wheezing as she used to.

Thank you!
