Celebrating The Small Things: Time

To be honest, when Bob lost his job before he was planning to retire I was not happy.  But now I am glad he decided to accept what happened and not fight a wrongful termination.  I can see we were really given a gift.  The gift of time.  Time to sit and talk to each other.  Time to work together.  Time to go to the movies on a weekday.  Time to go for long walks and wait for good photo opportunities — like todays photo taken in the aftermath of a planned burn in a nature park.  So this week I am celebrating time.

There is a weekly Blog Hop at Scribblings of an Aspiring Writer called Celebrate the Small Things. I like the idea, so on Fridays I will write a blog post about one small thing worth celebrating during the week.

What small things are you celebrating?

They can steal our job but they can never steal our joy, right (?) – because that comes from within! Life’s only a dress rehearsal for ultimately what’s important in life; God’s glorification. I hope you enjoy commenting because I sure enjoy reading opinions from my blogging friends. Blessings,

  3. Sounds like me – I was forced into retirement, but you know what I did? I started learning to write, got better and better, and I may have a big announcement before the end of the month. Always give yourself a chance to take a bad experience and turn it into good.
    Welcome to the blog hop! 🙂

  4. I am happy for you both that you can embrace the changes in your life and savour more time together….something that sometimes, couples forget how important that special time together can be, It has taken me six years to learn how to adapt and accept no longer having that special person to share things with
