…never mind. Day’s not over yet. Just in case.
Suffice it to say, I’ve found it ironic to be posting about a concept wherein you take a moment to appreciate the otherwise “unnoticed” and, even moreso, on a less-than-stellar day…when I’m having a total bollocks of a day.
It’s called The #gladitude project.
Today is a beautiful day. Let’s just leave it at that, k? 😉
Last Friday’s #gladitude post was chock full’o’commentary by people who had taken the time to appreciate the otherwise overlooked.
Because they were submitted as commentary on the post, I shall direct you to have a good read of them HERE.
Laurie is quickly becoming a poster child for #gladitude. It is well appreciated and helps spread the love! 😉 My fave was reading about scoring a Norman Knott print at a thrift store for $10!!! HUZZAH!!!
Marie is strongly finding the appreciation to not overlook the opportunities that present themselves with respect to family. I *get* family. I *get* the “busy.” I *get* the #gladitude. 😀
Michele popped in for a few of her own, which thrilled me to no end!! Then, it got better to read this part: “Getting a diagnosis and a medicine I think is going to work for me!” Also taking the time to find the #gladitude with respect to friends and family. LOVE.
Oh, yes. Very MUCH, yes.
My three gingers and two daycare girls.
(You didn’t know I was a childcare provider?!? Well, schinit…I should’a told you to sit down and get ready for THIS dandy!!! Bat-shit crazy. True story.)
I got me a POSTER!! 😀
Honestly, if you have children in daycare…go hug your provider. A BIG ONE. I’ve been on both sides of the coin now, and I can tell you this: Go hug your provider. (o.O)
With every treat I bake…with every craft we make…I’ll have care for you.
It’s absolutely uber-super-duper-FRABJOUS to get something like this instead of an eyeroll, a snark or a lip.
Tomorrow is the Ottawa-Gatineau Walk for Lupus!!!!
Although, my heart’s a little heavy at the missing people I wish so badly could be there.
One, in particular, is my friend, Christine. See, she had a hip replacement awhile back, and it was a total asshat and hadn’t been healing well. This put a crimp in the plans to attend the Walk. A BIG crimp. Well, last year she and another friend, Myst, had a wheelchair joust. With pool noodle lances. It was EPIC. 🙂
Why is that necessarily a #gladitude???
Well, because I can.
I also learned something today…something important to remember in all of your crafting endeavours:
1) There are two different temperatures glue guns out there in your local crafting department.
2) I, as an addict to glue guns, should really identify each glue gun I own as to being of “low” or “high” temperature.
“Shut the front door!!!” and “Buggernackles!!” and “Dagnammit all to h-e-double hockey sticks!!!!”
4) Getting hot glue on your fingers from a high temperature glue gun will result in the following:
“SWEET MOTHER OF ALL THINGS HOLY WHAT THE #$%#$%#!?!?!?!”
5) I will select the low temperature glue gun from now on.
True story. 😉
Go find your #gladitude today and over the week ahead…tell me what it is…let’s spread the ability to find the otherwise unnoticed that bring a little more “HUZZAH” into our days…
