- Watching Riley's softball team - every game they play, they just get better and better. It's so amazing to watch them execute. Three double-plays this weekend, plus some amazing hits. And 2/3 wins.
- Enjoying the company of her dad and step-mom (or my "step-wife", as I prefer to call her). Divorce is never an ideal situation. But I do consider myself one of the luckiest divorced people on the planet. I am so very grateful that my daughter gets to have parents who are friends.
- Getting to spend a day with my girls, enjoying good food and drink, and watching the Cards beat the Cubs. Who cares if it was hotter than Hades? We still had a great time!
- Having a best friend who lives so close to me.
- Finding inspiration and churning out a blog without agonizing it.
- Enjoying a nice dip in the pool to cool off, and the company of more good friends this evening.
- Reading another friend's foray into the world of blogging - I love it when people find their voice!
- Recognizing that everywhere I turn, I am blessed to have good people in my life.
