Welcome to this week’s edition of "Just a few things," a weekly blog dedicated to sharing a few things I've been doing, thinking, reading or learning throughout the previous week. Many of these things will be inspired by my interactions with you via email or social media... so feel free to drop a comment and share a few things yourself! Let’s get to it:
What’s a quote that made me think?
“Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.” -Anais Nin
Call me sentimental, but whatever. Ha. We had close friends and family in town last weekend for Graham’s first birthday and I was reminded of what it means to have good friends. We’re scattered across the state and country and don’t see each other nearly often enough, but when we do I’m always so thankful. I was standing off to the side of the room taking everything in and I could vividly see how we all met and the path we’d taken together over the years.
What’s one thought I can’t get out of my head?
Purpose. Joy. Purpose. Joy. Purpose and joy on repeat. I wrote a BlogOps post about this exact topic last year and it’s something I revisit often. This week, though, it’s been running rampant in my mind. There are a few reasons for this that I may share later on, but for now it’s something I’m mulling over. It’s a balance, ya know? If it were easy we’d all be doing it.
What have I been watching that brings joy?
Oh, this one is simple! It should be, right? I mean I do write these questions myself. Ok, to the answer. I stream a series of webcams nearly all day long that show my absolute favorite place on the planet. Who knows the answer? If you’ve been around long enough you should know this. Drop a comment and let’s hear your guess. Here’s a clue: North Carolina Coast.
What’s something that happened during the week for Combat Flags that I’m proud of?
I FINALLY made some headway on tearing down uniforms from December and January. I broke down about 10 complete sets this week. There is still more work to do on them, but I at least have them down to their components. Next up is crafting the stories and sending them off to the printer.
What’s one thing that YOU’RE proud of for the week?
Enough about me this week :) I want to hear from you. Leave a comment with one thing that you’re proud of from the week. Share your success with me, please!
That’s it for this week’s Just a Few Things. Thanks for stopping by and checking it out. Like I mentioned earlier, feel free to drop a comment with a few things you’ve been up to!
