Celebration Time is Here


Come join Ruth Ayres to celebrate your week. Share your post link at her website, and meet others who love celebrating!

This Saturday I celebrate:

ONE
A package that arrived from Finland yesterday. Finnish chocolate and new winter gloves. I hope to save the gloves for next winter, but otherwise, the timing of the package was a perfect ending for a busy week.


TWO
A wonderful pampering night for all the single moms that came to our Mom's Night Out at church

THREE
Great conversations at parent teacher conferences. I want to celebrate all the parents that came even though they did not have a car and had to find transportation with friends.

FOUR
Wonderful lunch with my sister-in-law Cindy! It was great to catch up in a relaxed atmosphere. Thanks to half day at school on Friday.

FIVE
These celebration Saturdays! I love looking back on my week and starting my weekend on a positive note! Thank you Ruth!

  1. Ah-h, the Finnish chocolate! Happy you had a good week, Jaana-me, too, but busy. I don't do conferences any more, but we've had them the past two days. I know the core teachers are very tired tonight. Nice to hear about your mom's night out, too! Have a great rest of the weekend!

  2. I love the idea of stopping to celebrate your week - an excellent way to be grateful. As you stated, starting the week by looking back on the celebrations puts you in the right frame of mind. A great ritual to develop, one I will be looking in to.

  12. Jaana,
    I am glad you are celebrating these joys with us! The chocolate sounds awesome...I wouldn't put away the gloves yet, I heard we might get snow again mid-week? Maybe you'll get to break them in!

  13. You definitely had a week worth celebrating. Put the gloves away. After all, if the gloves aren't out it wouldn't dare get cold, would it?

  18. Okay, next Saturday I have to remember to do the celebrations--love this as an idea. A night out for single moms is a lovely thing to give them all. And, I think that we're in for another cold blast--I think that you should crack out those gloves, Jaana!
