Looked Forward(?) to An Iffy Day-Look What Happened!

This first day of 2014 didn’t seem to be one I would enjoy.  The days have been cloudy and not much sun lately.  I felt destined to push through the heaviness, get the day over with, and hope the next would be better.  There wasn’t the brightness to my spirits I was hoping for to “start the year on the right foot.”

Then, I got a phone call.  My son called early and wished me a happy New Year.  His voice was strong; his demeanor upbeat.  It took me out of my doldrums immediately.  It’s amazing what a phone call can do – a good one.

I got another call.  My sister called to wish me a happy New Year.  We have a great rapport and we banter back and forth and get silly and laugh a lot.

While the Rose Bowl parade was making noise in the background, I took a look at my emails.

Got on to Suzie81’s Blog.  How??  I was immediately taken in by her current blog post found at http://suzie81.wordpress.com/2013/12/28/successes-and-mistakes-blogging-in-2013/ in which Suzie covers, at length, her take on what she considers her successes and mistakes in the short time she’s been blogging.  Her advice is a rare gem.  Take a look.

I believe, when someone starts a blog, there isn’t the thought in mind that what we write about is going to affect readers one way or another.  I didn’t think that but, yesterday, I was told that I may have inspired someone in particular to start “journaling” again.  If that isn’t a happiness happening, I don’t know what else could compare at that moment.

So far, it isn’t a half-bad day after all!
