Slice of Life Tuesday #190402
Not all appreciation is expressed with a “thank you”…
My daughter, her husband, and their five children were out and about doing errands and having fun the way families do. It was lunchtime and they were more than an hour from home. So they stopped to get a bite at a down-home diner.
BN, who just turned eleven, was especially enjoying his order of chicken tenders (aka: chicken fingers, chicken strips). As he dipped his last tender into the ranch dressing, he sighed and said, “Man, this is really delicious. Someday I’m going to bring my children here.”
Now that’s what I call genuine, unabashed appreciation.
Musings about March…
Can it really be that March is over…
and I just submitted my Slice of Life Participant Pledge
officially declaring I completed the challenge,
officially entering my name into the drawing for #SOLC19 prizes?
Well, it is. And I did.
And my daily screen time reports went off the charts!
Thank you fellow bloggers…
I am sending a huge heartfelt thanks to you who blogged
Who shared laughter, wonderings, and sometimes sadness
Who introduced me to people you love and important projects
Who opened your classroom, your home, and your life
Who invited me to celebrations, on camping trips, or to sit at your table
Who took me to far away places, on a neighborhood walk, or to a favorite pond
Who shared your learning … and I learned too.
Thank you fellow commenters…
To everyone who visited my blog and commented, I say another huge heartfelt thanks! I have been encouraged by your comments. I appreciate you!
Thank you to the crew at Two Writing Teachers…
A heartfelt thank you to Beth, Betsy, Deb, Kathleen, Kelsey, Lanny, Melanie, and Stacey for their commitment to writing and to us, for making #SOLC19 possible.
Such a great way to close out last month’s fun! Thank you for this!
Perfect! I love when my kids talk about one day doing something with their kids… such a feeling of future sentimentality!
This is a great slice. Your grandson’s comment is genuine. I thank you too for being such an encouragement to me. I am here because I needed to read some more of your writing and learn from you. Thank you SO much.
Your grandson sure knows how to pay a compliment! Enjoyed reading your musings and thanks, too, it’s great to be part of a writing community.
Love your grandson’t unsolicited testimonial. There truly is so much thanks to give for the March Challenge. It changes us all in a positive way.
So true. Genuine gratitude comes from the heart and is unmistakable. What a simple line, yet it’s packed with so much feeling. I can feel his thankfulness and happiness in that short quote!
A post full of gratitude! What a beautiful way to end a challenge! I’m sorry I didn’t get to visit your blog during this month and hope to rectify that someday soon. I always enjoy your posts! Most of my time commenting was spent with my wonderful Welcome Wagon crew. Such fun, but I missed visiting friends 🙂 Happy April!
your grandsons story is sweet and heartfelt and made me chuckle. And your words gave me such a warm feeling of gratitude for all of us slicers. Thank you for so succinctly expressing the thanks in your post!
You can’t express gratitude too often or too much. I am grateful I found your words here.
Your grandson’s comment is fabulous on multiple levels! That at a young age, he plans to have children one day, and would want them to enjoy what he loves best. And thank YOU, Alice, for being the insightful encourager you are. You scatter your own particular light with your writing, always uplifting others with your comments. I am always grateful for your words.
Love your grandson’s way of giving thanks. Showing up is a way to show gratitude, I think.
I echo your thoughts about the SOLC; although I took a break to travel and recover upon returning home, I loved posting each day and plan to stay the full month next year.
