Ok, so not all of these are technically “things”, this is me “speaking up” about what makes me smile, gives me hope, fills me with joy:
- Facebook posts that inspire me to close Facebook and go find something enjoyable to do
- The drop of the temperature in fall, accompanied by sharp blue skies and fiery reds an oranges against stalwart green
- People who by default try to “Stand with and for…” rather than “Stand against…”
- People who do business using “What’s the right thing to do here?” as their plumb line
- The arrival of a new book, just sitting there, waiting to spend time together
- Getting into a neatly made bed
And with that one, I’m out.
