Three Beautiful Things This Week

Three Beautiful Things This Week was inspired by a wonderful blog that Clare writes called Three Beautiful Things. Everyday, Clare writes about 3 Beautiful Things that happen each day in her life. It's a wonderful blog! I can only hope to imitate her in a very small way.

1) Damnit!  Jenny has shingles!  They are very painful, too.  I know that this isn't a beautiful thing, but I sure do admire my daughter even more.  I admire her strength and courage.  I admire her ability to endure.  I admire her tenacity in the face of great difficulty.  She's quite a woman!

2)  Nick has been sick, too!  Is this a beautiful thing?  No, it's not, but I admire his strength and courage, too.  He continues to be a strength to both Jenny and me.  What a wonderful son!

3)  Pixie makes me smile everyday.  She's decided that she likes to cuddle now.  It doesn't seem to matter where I am or what I am doing.  I turn around, and I find a head in my hand.  I smell something rank, and I hear a sigh, then I find someone cuddled next to me.  I'll be sitting down on the couch, and suddenly I have very little room because Pixie is cuddled next to me.  Yes, she makes me smile.  I am very grateful!

Ha! This made me chuckle! Any list of beautiful things that begins with "Damnit!" is going to be a funny and honest one! No glamorizing the situation, just plain, real life! I liked how the negative in each situation turned around to a positive though!
