A Season of Celebration

I recently had the pleasure of celebrating my birthday.  Last year my birthday was almost completely overlooked due to some family circumstances, so my family was determined to make up for it this year.  Over the course of four days, the surprises and celebration unfolded - gifts, cake, ice cream, special dinners and on and on.  It became a joke in our family that the celebrating would never end.  When it did, we had another milestone to celebrate and then another.  All of this celebrating cause me to stop and think that maybe (definitely) every day offers a reason for celebrating. 

They celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness. - Psalm 145:7

Of course, some days are better than others.  I will be the first to admit this fact.  However, I also firmly believe that if we spent more time celebrating even the little things that we would soon realize that even the worst day feels a little better than if we celebrated nothing. 

What things do we celebrate? Anything!

  • A-ha moments
  • Displays of kindness
  • Relationships
  • The completion of a project
  • Clean rooms

How do we celebrate? Sometimes big, sometimes small.

  • Hugs
  • Sweet treats
  • Choice of dinner
  • Movie night
  • Take a picture
  • Praise
  • Sending cards
  • Telling others

What will you celebrate this week?
