Officially Unofficial, it’s a TToT

The morning has dressed for Winter. Blue sky trimmed with bands of wrinkled white clouds their bellies lined grey, it is the first full day after the official beginning of Winter. That is where I beg to differ. The way I see it? This is the first unofficial first day of Winter’s end. That’s right, lol. Just go ask Clark. He’ll tell you unequivocally, Winter is over. Go ‘head. Dare you 😀

I woke this morning fairly early for a day I could sleep in. Not only Saturday, it’s the Saturday before Christmas and the beginning of a mini-vacation. I don’t have to return to work until next Wednesday. Sweet. A longtime believer in the body knows first, I was pouring my second mug of go-go juice, when I was accosted by a few creative “punks” taunting, “Gee, Denise, no pressure, why not sit and write a spell, huh?, huh?” Floating in a pressure free zone, they knew words tended to coalesce easier, you know, when they don’t have to appear. When they don’t need to perform.

Now what?! Seems I’ve scared them away. No nevermind. Cat’s out of the bag. I’m on alert now! (and no. won’t give in to the notion I’ve “wrecked it somehow”). Since I’m also one to not (intentionally) follow convention, not naturally blend in, I would like to take this opportunity to say Thank You to some folks and to shout out to the Universe my appreciation in this official, unofficial TToT:

Kristi, creator of Thankful Me. Even though we be on holiday hiatus, thank you for bringing us all the Ten Things of Thankful Blog Hop.

Clark. For the Wakefield Doctrine and providing living proof that commitment and practice produces results.

Zoe. She handed me the baton and challenged me to lead the Six Sentence Story Blog Hop. I’m thankful she did!

Six Sentence Story current (and past and on hiatus) participating writers: Mimi, Paul, Reena, Clark, Deepa, Pat, Dark Netizen, Neel, Rene, D. Avery, Sa, Ira, Deborah Lee, Val, Lisa, Kristi, Dyanne…I know I’m leaving someone out – my apologies! Bottom line: I totally enjoy bringing everyone the writing challenge that is the SSS and so appreciate reading your work. It’s not only an entertaining endeavor, it’s an opportunity to learn, to discover, and to enjoy getting to know people I’d otherwise never know!

Cynthia aka Sageleaf of Intuitive and Spiritual. She is a bright, shining beacon for my people 🙂 Talented and creative, I’m lucky to call her friend.

The Internet/Techonology. See above!

Family. In all its iterations.

For a warm place to live, transportation to take me where I want/need to be.

Health, vitality, opportunity to increase both.

This day…This day, my gift…This day my opportunity…This day, my only day.

Thank you all for giving me a bigger world.

    Being thankful on Saturday has gotten to be a habit with me, too. No way do i want to try to break one of the few good habits i have.

    Thank you for hosting the Six, it lets my inner mimi play.

      Thanks for stopping by today.
      Seems the older I get some habits start to drift a little but somehow, they eventually come circling back ’round 🙂
      Play is good. Play on, mimi 😀

    I’m thankful to you!!!! I love listening to Morning Has Broken while I’m typing this comment. It’s really rather fitting. 🙂 Thank you for the shout out, sweet friend!
    Now…I can’t remember if you said you were headed up to RI for the holidays…but wherever you are, I wish you the happiest of holly-days. 🙂 🙂 May 2019 be a continued year of writing, friendship, and all the glad tidings that make life worth living.
    Sending you big hugs, love, light and pumpkin spice. <– I love that spice this time of year. Hehe.

      Thank you, Cyndi 🙂
      No RI trip for Christmas. Went for Thanksgiving.
      Return wishes for you my friend. May you have peace and happiness, forward momentum, enlightenment, and success in all your new ventures:)
      Very difficult to wrap my head around it soon being the year 2019!
      Hugs for you too 🙂 I love pumpkin spice! I love pumpkin muffins, pumpkin bread….pumpkin cupcakes…:D
      Perhaps we’ll talk before the New Year 😀
      Give my best to John.
