this week was good because of...
...our celebration of Wildcat Guy's birthday.
...a delicious birthday dinner at a local steakhouse.
...getting to spoil him a little bit.
...surprising him with a birthday cake at midnight.
...the look on his face when he opened his birthday present.
...challenging, thought-provoking words from a campus speaker.
...a relatively non-dramatic first round of student staff selection for next year.
...finally buying a second muffin pan, to make baking for my crowds a little easier.
...an unexpected visit to the chiropractor ending with a thirty-minute massage. Ahhhhh.
...the graceful moment of sharing in a blessing before dinner.
...a new session of yoga, and a thought shared by the instructor on Thursday - "there is so much to learn in this moment if we allow ourselves to be present."
...fun decorations for my Valentine's Day cupcakes.
...silver cupcake liners.
...a lovely, easy-going, productive Saturday.
...letting my heart have a moment...then reminding my heart that everything happens in God's time, not mine.
...amusing Wildcat Guy with my multi-media multi-tasking during the Grammy's.
...realizing it's that time of year in the candy aisle.
...words of appreciation from a colleague.
...watching my "guys" (my male student staff) devour a pan of lasagna.
...simple, scrap-based cards that I love the look of.
...a heart-to-heart conversation with a student staff member.
...his understanding and listening to my frustrations this afternoon.
...an absolutely stunning "quote of the week" shared by a wise soul.
What made your week good?
