I have a deck of  'angel cards' a gift from my friend K., who is an extraordinarily kind and gifted person, and very spiritual. I go to these cards when life is troubling, or something is bothering me. 
Lately, one client at work has been a thorn in my side, negating all the other wonderful work changes that are happening.

That's the background on the theme of 'celebration'.  It's the angel card I pulled this morning, while lying in bed, past 10, still in pajamas (I do love Saturday), idly reading and catching up with friends.
With all the stress in life lately, celebration seems to be the last thing on my  mind. Gratitude often eludes me as I allow negative thoughts to pervade.  Light seems to be in short supply, both figuratively and literally (the days are getting shorter--this is the hardest part of the fall/winter thing for me. Bring me the cold. Bring me the long solitary runs out in it, in a new running jacket I just picked up.  But leave me the light, I'm begging you.)

Life, love, light, gratitude, empathy, kindness, calm feelings.
I pledge to try to do better when faced with challenges.

Oh, and there's coffee.  There's always that.  Headed towards a cup now.

Happy Saturday. Make a new recipe, drink too much coffee or wine, run in the rain, your shoes wet, your hair sopping, your heart singing. Waste time on the internet, buy groceries, make a nice dinner.

Have a great one.
