Saturdays are usually set aside to reflect on celebrations from the past week. For the month of March, those celebrations are also a slice of my life.
Ruth Ayres deserves the top spot of celebration today. I celebrate Ruth and the way she strings words together to touch hearts, but also to encourage writers. It was her urging that finally pushed me into creating a blog and begin writing slices. I was not a writer just to write. I only wrote because I had to complete an assignment, a form, to communicate
with someone. Crafting words to preserve small moments of my life was not even on my horizon. I am so sorry I didn’t know the joy of writing when my son was young. So many stories lost. Ruth introduced me to a new world and filled it with friends from around the globe. Thank you Ruth!
Don’t you just love impromptu gatherings? As I sat reading slices yesterday, my phone dinged there was a text. Yes, I can make it, I responded. So 4:30 found me enjoying the company of my friends who were celebrating the beginning hours of spring break. Sometimes you just need to step out of the routine of the ordinary and celebrate the moments of spontaneity.
