Montreal’s hopes of winning the Stanley Cup are slim this year but I remember the jubilation we all feel as Montrealers when they do. When I think of celebration, I think of a Stanley Cup win. Can’t help it, I am from Quebec after all.

Yesterday’s post was about celebration. I learn more and more that I have so much cause for celebration in my life, especially as a teacher, and I wrote about some of that yesterday. Today I’d like to ask – what are you celebrating? The little things, the big things. What’s got you thankful for living the life you live these days?

Tracy, who’s anxiously waiting for the next 2 days to pass…

    I’m celebrating a year of working with teachers and kids who really “get it” when we say “becoming a writer” is more about the “becoming” and less about the “writing.”

    Definitely worth celebrating, Angela. I love it.

    BTW: My brother is a long-time Canadiens fan. He has even travelled to Montreal to see the Canadiens play @ the Molson Center. Now, that’s loyalty.
