No prep this week, no photos, no stories.
Just instant answers - the first things that come to mind of each of these items for which I'm truly grateful.

1 - an unexpected conversation with a friend that I truly appreciated
2 - an unexpected acceptance of an invitation I made which I'm truly looking forward to

2 - an email from a friend
3 - the way writing truly works on my soul
3 gifts of red:
