Daily 5 - Year 2, Day 29

Sometimes making these lists feels like a lame exercise.  Especially when it's been the kind of week where I feel like every evening I sit down and list the same things over and over.  That said, lately the same things have offered glimmers of hope and encouragement over and over amidst some long, tough days.  And so I list them.  Over and over.

Today was a pretty rough day in a lot of ways.  And some of those same things helped.  And now, I'm staring at a screen, feeling like it lacks originality to list them again.  And yet, they helped.  They were bright spots in a painful day.  So I'm listing some of the same things, and a few newer ones too.

Today's Daily 5:

  1. lighting candles
  2. curling up in my own bed
  3. fuzzy slippers
  4. chocolate
  5. packing for my holiday (2 days!)
  6. twirling skirts and scarves
  7. trading emails with a few dear friends
  8. cathartic tears
  9. watching church online from California
  10. clean water

11. Only one more full day at home till you get to have a real conversation instead of email conversation with your friend! :-)
