Celebrate the Small Things-Week 5

VikLit over at Scribblings of an Aspiring Author calls us to Celebrate the Small Things every Friday.  So here I am!  Let's celebrate!

Yesterday, I got a lot of great comments about my short piece "A Drink in the Sun."  It's the first story I've ever written about vampires, and I tried to give it a twist that makes it fit in with the stories I love to write.  Your supportive and encouraging comments made me feel really good about myself.  Blogging buddies are some of the best friends an aspiring author can have!

My 3 year old son got sick this week, but now he's back to his normal, overly-energetic self.  That too is something worth celebrating!  Having a sick child in the house is never a good thing.  I got sick this week too, but I think I'm starting to get over it as well.  The worst I had was a sore throat, and it's not as bad as it was.  My youngest child didn't get anything worse than a little cold as a result of all the illness that's been circulating around our house, so I'm glad about that.

I'm looking forward to finding a little way to celebrate Valentine's Day with my husband this weekend.  He may have to work tomorrow.  Still not sure about that.  Either way, we'll find some little way to celebrate, even if it's something small.  Hey, as this meme shows us, the small things are worth celebrating!  By extension, little celebrations can be just as nice as big ones!

What small things do you want to celebrate?


  1. Glad your little one is doing better, and you too. Hopefully you get your Valentine celebration and a great weekend!

  2. I enjoyed your vampire piece, I liked the twist you added :)
    Getting rid of illness is certainly something to celebrate, and so is Valentines Day, no matter how you celebrate it :)

  3. I hope you and your husband get to do something this weekend.

  4. Glad you guys are over being sick!

    Have a wonderful time this weekend with the hubby, happy valentine weekend ;)

  5. Glad you're finally banishing those sick germs away! May they not return for eons to come.

  6. I hope you had a wonderful Valentine with your hubby L.G.

  7. Little celebrations can be JUST as awesome as big ones!!! I am glad you are all getting over illnesses! Thanks for joining in.

  8. Yes, celebrate your talent! Your piece on Friday was one of the best that I read.

    Enjoy your weekend, and I'm hoping you get a few minutes alone with Hubby. Those are the precious moments!
