what I am learning

What I am learning....

1. I am learning how to play the piano.   I have never taken any kind of music lessons before.  So far it doesn't seem hard and I am learning to read music.  It is also a good reminder to me how children might find learning certain things more challenging than I realize.


2.  Thankfulness is good for you.  Being thankful doesn't come easy for me.  Each day I have been writing down something to be thankful for, and some days it is a stretch.  It is getting easier, and it seems to keep me in a better frame of mind.  I may continue this project beyond the month of November.

3.  Living in the same small community for a number of years really is a good thing.  Twice in the last week I have had people check up on me because they wanted to make sure I was okay.  One friend had not been able to get a hold of me by phone and the other had not seen me at work.  It is nice to know there are people looking out for me.

What are you learning?

Good for you.

In my current passage finding gig, I'm learning persistence. If at first you don't succeed, try and try again...

How interesting. It is so fun and challenging to learn something new, isn't it? I guess I would say I am learning to play scrabble--better. There is way more to it than I thought. The Santa Fe Scrabble Club is very serious, & I usually lose, but learn something each time I go. Very rewarding, and lots of fun!
