Things We Appreciate

It’s almost time for the Challenge that everyone has been talking – or at least, thinking - about since the last one! The (Blogging from) A –Z April 2018 Challenge begins on Sunday, April 1st, so there’s still time to sign up and help us break another participation record!
Check out how it all began and welcome to my Theme Reveal!
In light of the current communications climate, it’s easy to ascertain that it’s not just the weather that might be changing. While contemplating the upcoming A to Z challenge one day, a morning news show droned on in the background as I re-filled Hummingbird feeders at the sink. When the newscasters had not a single inspirational piece of information to offer in at least 15 minutes, I turned the TV off in disgust and flipped on the overhead sink light as a cloud parked in front of the sun. That’s when I was instantly inspired by the oddest, yet most rudimentary source:

Has it ever come in handy for you? What do you call it?
See where I’m going with this? If I can appreciate even one thing every day of the month, I could be inspired all summer! Stop on by and add to my list as I participate in this year’s April A-Z Challenge!
