#BlogExodus: Celebrate

As readers of this blog know, I’m sort of blue this week.  Nonetheless, I’m trying to find little moments to celebrate.

Here are this week’s celebrations: 
  1. Having dinner with friends.
  2. The wacky, kind-hearted neighbor who sent me an Easter card.
  3. Seeing a movie with my sister.
  4. An unexpected vacation day.
  5. An hour to read in the middle of the workday.
  6. New notebooks on the way.
  7. A friend’s voicemail wishing me a sweet Pesach.
  8. Must-see TV.
  9. Hugs from a colleague.
  10. The anticipation of overnight guests – one at the start of April, the other at the end of the month.
What are you celebrating this week?

Inspired by Ima on (and off) the Bima, this post is one in a series marking the days of the Jewish month of Nisan leading up to Passover, which begins at sundown on Friday, April 3, corresponding to 15 Nisan. If you want to play along, check out this year's #BlogExodus and #ExodusGram prompts. This series of posts also is priming my heart, mind, and spirit to participate in a six-day summer writing seminar, Beyond Walls: Spiritual Writing at Kenyon.
