Happy Friday

It's been a rough week here. Life took an unexpected turn and we're sorting through things right now. When things get bad, I've learned that's when it's most important  to remind ourselves of the small, surprising pleasures we can encounter at every turn, if we bother to pay attention.

Why yes, that is a goat ride. Clearly, this trumps any pony ride I've ever seen. I just wish I'd been tiny enough to take part in the delightful fun.

Happy Friday, and here's hoping you have a weekend full of small (or large!) surprising pleasures.


  1. Big hugs for the awful news. Wish I was more networked so I could help out!

  2. Take care. Eat some marshmallows.

    Thank you for sharing that picture.

  3. Sometimes life just has to throw another obstacle in our path. It's frustrating, but I'm glad you are able to look at the detour as an opportunity for new, small pleasures. Keeping you guys in my thoughts and hoping it all works out.

  4. I would rather take a goat ride than a pony ride any day.
    Ponies are so cliche.

  5. I know of a marketing and writing job at a non-profti, but it pays diddly. Look up Josephson Institute on Idealist if your hubbard is interested!
