This week my bestest friend was off with her hubby on vacation.
A vacation without work or kids.
I hope she got a sexy new nightgown to take with her.
Really, long time married and off on their own for a whole week should mean…well,
you know what it should mean without my spelling it out.
The point of this post is not about that…
It is about finding some small thing that I did or that happened this week that I can celebrate.
Being a not too interesting person (I really don’t do much of anything) this is no easy task.
But as I was pondering the week I thought about my bestest friend.
She is not a small thing in my life she is a big part of my life.
But she is someone I celebrate knowing.
My life is richer and more fun and happier because she is a part of it.
I can laugh, talk about anything, rant and rave, and just be me when I am with her.
I have even cried. Not something I do!
So this is what I celebrate this week…my friend…”Lucy”.

Today, I think I am one lucky ditz to have a friend who is much more than a friend.
I like people with zip.
You know, people who are energetic.
They are rarely too tired to do something or go somewhere.
They may have aches and pains but aren’t stopped by them.
People with zip are fun to be around but they can wear you out.
Unless you are a person with zip it is best to take these folks in small doses.
Today, I think I am more of a nap person than a zip one.
And so ends the 2013 A to Z Challenge.
I had fun with this and I hope you did, too.
Now back to my (ir)regular scheduled posting.
I like people who are filled with wonder.
People who wonder are people who enjoy life.
They are not easily bored because they are curious about the world around them.
They find nature fascinating and learning fun.
They look a things and wonder how they work and why.
They look at people and wonder at the diversity.
People of wonderment are delighted with life and the complexities of it.
They see each day as a wonderful gift to be opened and explored.
Today, I think wonderment is a wonderful thing in a person.
I like people who are risk-takers.
I am not talking about people who run with the bulls or bungee jump or stuff like that.
They certainly are risk-takers and I say \O/ them.
But I am talking about people who take risks to achieve something
other than to say they have done it and survived the challenge.
Those who speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves…risk .
Those who champion causes that are unpopular…risk.
People who take their faith with them to work or school…risk.
Folks whose lives are different from what is considered acceptable…risk.
These kind of risk-takers are ordinary people who live quiet lives, bravely.
They aren’t looking for pats-on-the-back or high-fives.
They ask for no reward.
They just live their lives honestly and with determination.
Today, I think it takes a brave person to risk going against the pack.
I like liberated people.
Liberated people have let go of the past and don’t worry about the future.
They live in the present.
They don’t fret about what other people think.
They decide for themselves what their life will be and how they will live it.
Liberated folks have courage and are strong.
Today, I think I will try struttin’ my stuff my way.
I like jovial people.
Jovial people like people. Not everyone does. They do.
They like good company and social occasions and having fun.
Most jovial types are themselves fun. When they are around pretty much everyone has a good time.
I, myself, am not a jovial person.
I like good company and fun but not so much social occasions.
Some people think I am funny; but I don’t think I am what you would call fun.
I am a bit too boring to be jovial.
Today, I think life would be very boring without jovial sorts to get the party going.
water of life
Today, I think I knew this when I was a little girl…my family is of Irish stock, ya know.
Because this is March, the month of the Irish,
all the words are English derived from Irish words.
