I began the practice of writing down the events that brought a smile to my face or peace to my heart as part of a weekly online bookclub over a year ago. It has been a wonderful practice that I know I will continue for a very long time. This week one of the events that has really made me smile was working with Sara Healy as a guest blogger. This was a new experience for me and Sara made it so much fun. I hope that you will visit Sara's blog, The Sharing Connection, and read my short story.
One other thing that really made me happy this week was the support of my friends both in my real world and online. I find that as time goes on I realize more and more the importance of friendship. Each week I meet with a group of writers. We met in a writing class almost a year ago and now meet once a week to share the progress of our work. It is so inspiring to see the progress each person is making and watch the direction they are taking their writing. This week after reading an article written by our instructor, we had a lively discussion about the many ways there are to get our stories out into the world. Writing is not always about having a best seller but sometimes about having your voice heard and there are many avenues you can take to accomplish this.
I hope that your week was filled with many simple but happy moments that made you smile. Sharing happiness with others is one of the things that makes me smile each day. I would love to know about the simple happy moments that you experienced this week.
