So it's gotten a bit quieter in my blogging world. Just as the blog posts have slowed to a crawl (I'm doing good to get one up a week!), so have the comments, and I don't blame you. Even the Facebook page has downgraded to a whisper, and let's face it, my Twitter presence was never something to write home about.
In fact, the longer I work in social media (you know, for a paycheck), the quieter I get online in my personal accounts. Perhaps it's because I see the way that others view blogging and Facebook and various forms of social media - as a way to promote, mostly themselves. Maybe it's just because I'm online all day, five days a week, and it's drained the "fun" out of it. But mostly, I blame it on a quote that I stumbled upon last week, that hasn't left me yet. In fact, it was so thought-provoking for me that I made it into a Facebook header for a daily reminder. How's that for irony?
I could leave you there, because, well, there's really nothing more to say. But it is Friday after all, and my OCD-side will throw a tiny tantrum if I don't at least share a short list of things that have caused me to feel grateful this week. Indulge me once again, won't you? Thanks.
The hubs getting fed lunch at work... and bringing home the leftovers so I wouldn't have to cook
Fortune cookies that provide mirth after a long day
The first cup of pumpkin spiced tea
That neither of my parents broke anything when they both fell last week
Opportunities to gain new skills and investigate a possibility
For a humorous and opinionated family
Reminders of what matters in life
Online-only friends who are the bright spots to my day
What are YOU thankful for this week?
