Nurturing, sweet tooth and 401

- This artwork that graces the website Welcome page of the fledgling Rising Song preschool in Portland, Oregon. And so proud of the lovely and talented niece who will be teaching alongside her friend "nurturing the imagination" and realizing her dream.

- Discovering a forgotten cherry Tootsie Pop in my purse and smiling at the memory of filching it from the candy jar in the office of my church. A committee member said, "oh you are such a kid, aren't you?" At heart maybe, but really just a gal with a sweet tooth.

- Discovering that yesterday was my 400th post! That's 1200 Good Things. The best thing is that you stop by. Thank you.

You're welcome, Lynn. I'm only sorry I wasn't here sooner! Here's to thousands of more good things!

How cool a job is that? Nurturing the imaginations of young children has to be completely rewarding.

lol @ the Tootsie Pop. I'm assuming the wrapper was still intact and it didn't decide to stick to the lining? (This is coming from a purple Tootsie Pop lover.)

Talon -

No - no sticking! I was looking for a breath mint with one hand while driving and came across it. A eureka moment. :)

I admire Becky's guts for doing this!

And I am thankful I found your wonderful blog. Here's to you, too!

1200 good things! And hopefully thousands and thousands and thousands more to come here! Do you ever find it a struggle to come up with your daily 3 or is it as easy as eating dessert?

Lynn said...

Jannie -

Some days as easy as eating dessert and tougher other days. But I try to keep my eyes open for good things!

Wow! I DO like your 3-things method alot! I don't know how you come up with so many strange combinations...
(I'm just doing rolaids this week)

Good luck to the teacher- I taught some folk-dancing to 5th-graders once, n had a guitar class in High school. It's alot of aggrivation plus fun!

Snaggle -

I'm glad you are coming by. I like to read your blog, too.

There is a gal in England, Clare Grant, who started a Three Beautiful Things blog (it is linked to the right on my blog) - I used to read it and then decided to do it, too. Mine is a little different and always includes a photo if possible.

Discovering forgotten candy is so awesome, especially when it's a Tootsie pop. I hope I never get too mature to enjoy candy.

Congrats on 400 posts!

Lynn said...

Me either, David. Thanks for stopping by!
