A Month of Small Celebrations - December 21

Small Celebration

So first things first, I am celebrating the world did not end. I still have many things to do on this earth.  :)

Second, I received a Christmas card created in remembrance of my Eli in the mail today. Created by the organization  They light the candles on October 15th every year and then send everyone a personalized picture of it. I don't know if this is actually a Christmas card, but that is what I am calling it.

On the  back is this poem ~

The world may never notice 
If a snowdrop doesn't bloom,
Or even pause to wonder 
If the petals fall too soon.
But every life that ever forms, 
Or ever comes to be,
Touches the world in some small way
For all eternity.
The little one we long for
Was swiftly here and gone.
But the love that was then planted
Is a light that still shines on.
And though our arms are empty,
Our hearts know what to do.
Every beating of our hearts
Says that we love you. ~ Unknown

Third, I have started a new job part time outside of the home. Five hours, four days a week. I haven't left the house on a regular basis for this long without Nolan in months. I am celebrating the opportunity to do this work. And I am realizing that young man Nolan misses me when I am gone. When I got home tonight he would not let me out of his sight and we laughed and played and hugged like we couldn't get enough. 

And fourth, I had an attractive, younger man flirt with me today. I was thrilled! And then I realized that I need to get out of the house more often, flash my smile and laugh with people of the male persuasion other than my son!
