Celebrate: Five Star Things About the Week

It’s Saturday; time to reflect on the goodness of the week. Thanks to Ruth we have a place to share at Ruth Ayres Writes.

ONE
Community: I hosted Poetry Friday yesterday. It’s always fun to see who shares poems, originals, and poetry books. Yesterday didn’t disappoint.

TWO
Perseverance: Nothing like awaking early this morning, adding a late entry to Poetry Friday, and clicking something which causes all your work to dissapear. So I needed to persevere and rewrite my Poetry Friday post.

THREE
Friendship: This week, I was able to have lunch dates with friends. The end of summer means catching up with friends in a leisurely way.

FOUR
Students and Parents: Thursday evening we had our annual back-to-school bar-b-que. It was so great to reconnect with families after summer break. Students meet their teachers for the coming year.

FIVE
Poems: I received a poem in the mail this week from Margaret Simon. (plan to share next Friday). The Summer Poetry Swap was a great way to be connected to community and keep writing.

What are you celebrating?
