Celebrate the Small Things...

It's Friday again and time to talk about the little things I appreciate. What could make for a better weekend then to start it off with a thankful heart?

1. I've gotten a partial request from an agent as a result of WriteOnCon!

You can see my entry here...

WriteOnCon

2. I received an R&R from another agent.

3. Tonight is movie night, so that means I get to relax with hubby and enjoy some family time. I can't wait!

4. My son made a A+ on one of his phonics tests. The first one ever!!!!

5. I've joined the A to Z Challenge, inspired by Alex J Cavanaugh (that is, I was inspired by Alex to join) and Blog Blitz. DL Hammons (of Write Club fabulousness) I think it's going to be a fantastic way of making some new friends! My Big Welcome posts for each of these next week!


What about you? What brought a smile to your face this week?

  16. Wonderful news, my friend! I wish you all the best. Keep keepin' us posted! ;-)

    I'm thankful for a relaxing weekend at home hanging out with the kids and the hubby. I'm also thankful that a blogging buddy of mine had her debut novel published last week. I'll be part of her blog tour starting this coming Monday if you'd like to check out her interview and book info on my blog then.

    Enjoy the weekend and good luck with the request and the R&R! Blessings...

  17. Congrats to you and your son. An R&R is a big deal. And we all know that an A+ is a big deal!

    I found your pitch intriguing. I like anything dealing with mixing dreams with the real world, especially if the dreamer is communicating with the dead. Good luck!
