This week I celebrate:
* Returning to work. It has been a long, long summer. I do love the down time, but I am looking forward to returning to a routine.
* Ryan's acceptance into the University of Iowa. This is only his first and we aren't even sure this is where he will end up going to college, but the first acceptance letter is very exciting.
* My ability to remain (mostly) positive during the crazy 'getting ready for school' week. Schedules changed at the last minute, patience ran short, and sleep went missing....but I took lots of deep breaths, put a smile on my face, and remembered how blessed I am.
* Prayers answered.
* Friends -- there when I need them them most, even when I don't realize that I do. (Yes...I'm talking about YOU! :)
I hope you had a great week with bountiful celebrations!
