WAYA: What Are You Appreciating?

by Stacey on June 11, 2010

When you find yourself appreciating something – at any time, or even multiple times, in a week – I hope you will try to capture it in a note, photograph or any form that strikes your fancy, and send it to us.

If you get it to us each Thursday at 5pm it will be included in the next day’s post. (See left side bar for the link to send your submissions.) See this week’s entries below.

If you missed getting in your submission earlier in the week, but would like to chime in now, please leave a comment below! I can’t wait to hear what you are appreciating!


This week I’m appreciating that a published copy of my children’s picture book, Ravenna, will be in my hands soon! And it could be in your hands too! You can pre-order a copy here and I would be most appreciative!

Stacyey – Fabulous news on the book!! Please tell me how to preorder it though. There doesn’t appear to be a button or a link on the web site for Ravenna.

Today I am appreciating you and all the other family and friends holding me up at this very moment. The energy of the universe is flowing my way and I feel illuminated by it. My lumpectomy surgery is Tuesday and I am so ready for it! See more on my blog http://ghentfever.blogspot.com

Hello dear Kathy!

Unfortunately I just found your note in the spam folder! This is the second time this has happened to you and I am completely at a loss to explain it. Equally baffling is that I found one of *my* comments also there!

Anyway, I’ll keep closer tabs on this pesky folder and I’ll focus my energy now on your wonderful appreciation! Thank you so much for your kind words for Ravenna and you can pre-order my book from the “Book” tab on the Ravenna website. Here’s the direct link:


And I’m so glad that I am able to offer you tons of love and light on the eve of your surgery. I love how you have the image of us holding you up as you go through this process – and yes, we are!

I’ll go to your blog now to read more! Thank you again, dear Kathy, for all the love and light you shine in the world. Much love to you, s

So excited for YOU!!! And your book! How awesome!!

This week I am appreciating wildlife – and seeing both families of foxes and families of turkeys out! Pretty wonderful to think about our natural world, and how beautifully it works…

Hi Lance!

Thanks so much for your *awesome* response to the news about my book! I am super excited!

And thanks, also, for sharing your appreciation about the wildlife surrounding your home! My family just got back from a vacation on a lake in TN and we saw a family of turkeys. My 5 year-old son and 8 year-old nephew were SO delighted to see the mama turkey fly – they had never seen such a big bird take flight!

And there was a nest nestled in a crook of the house’s porch where we watched the mama bird fly in and out of a hundred times a day as she sought to keep 4 tiny beaks and bellies filled!

Oh, and there was no light pollution so the sky was absolutely brilliant with star light. Oh, I could go on, there so many other wonders of nature, but my son is now asking that we go on a night walk right now to see the stars!

Thanks again for celebrating my book and for sharing so much lovely appreciation! Much love to you, s
