Good Things

by Stacey

I’m not sure my mother knows this but lately, she has adopted a new phrase that I love.

After she talks about something fun that she has read, learned or done, she’ll end the story by saying, “And that’s a good thing.”

When she said it the other day, I had an idea for a blog post and here it is…

    I have to say an amazingly good thing that happened to me this week. I was listening to some buskers and fell into conversation with someone who had also stopped to listen. Turned out he is a folk musician. I happened to mention how I’ve always wanted to learn the accordion. He turned round and offered me his old accordion. Just like that. “In return for a coffee”. A few startled but smiley moments later the deal was done, and I came home with a gorgeous Italian 40 year old accordion. A gift from a stranger. Totally amazing! I’m still in shock several days later, but his kindness, generosity are something I definitely want to spread in his name. A very very good thing indeed!

  2. Want the turkey soup leftovers!
    Warm Chocolate chip cookies
    making up songs with a child
    Shivery leftover leaves against a clear blue sky
    a warm chair and a good book
    Next Monday we have a guest poster. Victoria just turned 8 and she will be posting about what kids really like to read.
