Today when I came home from work and opened my mailbox, I discovered my contributor copy of FUN FOR KIDZ magazine. I had totally forgotten I'd even wrote those articles for that issue! Thinking back, my oldest wasn't reading when I wrote them three years ago. So it was an unexpected surprise to find him sitting on the couch, reading the magazine and learning from something that I wrote.
It made me smile.
Last week I had a friend I'd met in Korea (she's now working in the Netherlands) come visit me. We had thought her trip wouldn't work out but in the end it did! The next thing I knew, she was flying out to Orlando to visit! We had a blast together catching up and riding all the roller coasters at Disney.
Another unexpected surprise.
Then tonight, I kind of had a big breakthrough on my current writing project. I'm trying out some new things with this book and it's kind of scary and overwhelming, but at the same time I'm learning so much from the process. And I love creating a new and fresh story.
So how about you? What brings a smile to your face today?
