It’s been a long, tiring week for me, and I wasn’t necessarily as observant of the world around me as I might have been. I did manage to find three beautiful things to report on, however, because they are always out there.
1. After what has seemed like an endless stream of cold days, it finally warmed up enough that quite a lot of Snowmageddon has melted away. Clear sidewalks and winter-weary grass have never looked so lovely.
2. In an entirely unexpected — but wholly pleasant — turn of events, the men’s Olympic hockey team from the US upset host Canada and then went on to handily beat Finland to advance to the gold medal game. (This will get super-huge bonus beauty points if they beat Canada again tomorrow.)
3. I got a phone call today with news so amazing and beautiful that it made me cry.
