Celebrate the Day! Every Day!

Our Featured Item this week goes along with the ESN blog of the week.  We were supposed to consider Mardi Gras --wild and crazy, colorful and playful.
I have been thinking more along the lines of celebrating.  Also thinking of Psalm 118:24 --This is the day which the LORD has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it. Every day is an occasion to celebrate.  We just have to look around us sometimes and to have the right attitude in order to appreciate each day for what it brings and celebrate it for what it is. 

One day we all celebrated was January 1, 2000. And my featured item this week harks back to that Millennium celebration.   As a kid the year 2000 seemed so far away.  Now it is fading not so slowly into the past.
Some celebrated Mardi Gras last week in a wild and crazy way. We all celebrate birthdays, Christmas, Easter, weddings,anniversaries, graduations, homecomings, promotions, and the list goes on.  But do we stop to acknowledge and celebrate the little achievements and victories each day?  We should.
You can buy this cute little collectible here.
We'd love to have you stop by Hazel's HodgePodge where you are sure to find "A treasure to brighten your day" and make it a cause for celebration.


  1. Terrific take on the weekly theme. Celebrations happen every day if we take time to recognize them! Great post, Hazel!

  2. Terrific idea Hazel. You are right. I am going to try and remember Celebrations all the time.
