WAYA: What Are You Appreciating?

When you find yourself appreciating something – at any time, or even multiple times, in a week – I hope you will try to capture it in a note, photograph or any form that strikes your fancy, and send it to us. If you get it to us each Thursday at 6pm it will be included in the next day’s post.  See this week’s entries below.

If you missed getting in your submission earlier in the week, but would like to chime in now, please leave a comment below! I can’t wait to hear what you are appreciating!


This week I’m appreciating simple summer pleasures, like blowing bubbles on the front porch. (I had a bubble blower *exactly* like that when I was a kid!)




I am appreciating you and the many other residents of Asheville who took such loving care to me after my accident.You all stepped up to make my problem- OUR problem and helped to solve it with me. It takes a mindful village to prosper and it is a joy and blessing for each of us to participate. I appreciate all of your participation.

I’m appreciating the fact that even though I may not be exactly where I want to be right now, I have the power to change that and I am on my way. It gets frustrating waiting to “get there” sometimes, but I am taking steps towards the future I want and meeting some fantastic people along the way. I’m trying to remember to enjoy the journey, not just be impatient for the end goal.

I am appreciating the wonderful journey I made to  Seattle and Portland, Oregon recently. It was everything an adventure should be: road trips,  celebrations (my college best friend got married!), train rides, late nights, good food,  old friends and new friends, and overall revelry.
