Tuesday Tidings

Today is a one I like to dedicate to reflections upon the blessings in my life. In that spirit, I must say that I'm thankful for the following five things:

1. Words and Writing - my life would not be the same without them

2. Mom - who read to me when I was a little girl and shares my love of language

3. Dad - for kicking my butt at Scrabble and thereby teaching me strategy outside a strength in spelling

4. Having both parents - I'm thrilled by a low divorce rate in my immediate family

5. Parents with diversified interests - Corvettes, gardening, pets, and music are fondly shared delights

My friends at the Writer's Retreat Blog are in on the joyous fun. I hope you will join us for:

Gratituesday in the Zen Garden

    1. They are still living, my dear! That's another huge blessing that should have been included since I mentioned my folks. ~grin~ Thank you so much for stopping by with the kindly words.

  2. Words and Writing! I'll join you in gratitude for this blessing. What would I do without words? What if we lived in a world where people had to whoof at each other instead of using words? hmmm... flash fiction idea popping in my mind.

    Thank you for inspiring me with your blessings! :)

  3. I always seem to come two days late to your Tuesday blessings! But on this Thursday I am grateful for so many things - but most of all my family and my brilliant mother who was 94 last month. She and my late father were the most wonderful parents ever.

    1. You are welcome to visit anytime! I really appreciate your time and kind words. That's awesome that you still have your mother. May your father rest in peace and enjoy a joyous reunion with her someday. My heart goes out to you for that loss. Blessings to you, my dear.
