Reverse Blessing Count

These unscheduled comments are inspired by receiving a Christmas CD from The Accidental Cootchie Mama, one of my favorite blogs.  Andra is witty and irreverent every single day, and I love her habit of sending occasional gifts to her followers. Especially when I win!

So, to honor all the good luck and fortunate events of December, I’m celebrating them in reverse order.

Today I’ve added corrections and suggestions to the last three scenes of my WIP. Without my writing buddy, Lynette, I ‘d be writing in a vacuum. Her intelligent and humorous critique is an inspiration! (I’m up to 19,000 words. Only 60,000 more to go:)).

Christmas day I received awesome gifts from my husband! Can’t say what they were, but use your imagination. Guarantee you’ll never guess.

Friday before Christmas, my boss, Lori, left a holiday goodie bag on my cluttered desk. This lady has been my constant supporter at work for the last year during some difficult times.

So, all in all, December has been a wonderful month. Just saying.

What blessings are you counting?

  1. Thanks for your kind words, Nancy. I am glad you won a CD.

    I have too many blessings to count, but I am thankful I can see and am not ill. One scare makes us realize how thankful we should be for good health.

  2. A lot of good news, Nancy. Good health is the be all, end all. More of the same in 2014. 🙂
    Time teaches us to be grateful. Being young, we used to take everything for granted.

    I am grateful for every day I wake up to see another day, my family, friends, my lovely companion, Lady Gaga. Playing with words is my greatest joy, though. 🙂

  3. I’m grateful to the snow gods. Skiing Aspen Highlands on 12/26 was like gliding on glitter. The views of Maroon Bells and Pyramid Peak are hard to beat.

  4. Yay for health!!!! ‘use your imagination. Guarantee you’ll never guess.’ Okay challenge accepted here is my top three list of things it probably isn’t: 1) A robot made of seashells and ghosts 2) A knife and spork set 3) Two mutated sausage dogs that now have the minds and humps of camels who have a quizzical aspect.

  5. Certainly among my blessings are the wonderful people I’ve met via the worldwide web. 😉
    I feel blessed to be free to pursue my passions, and to have friends and family who treasure me.
    Health is a biggie too!
    Sounds like you got some great gifts there. 🙂 Happy 2014!!!
