The 2014 Wednesday Showcase Hall of Fame

Good Morning from America Everyone!!! I hope your Wednesday is off to a wonderful start. For some of you, you are well into your day, so I hope it's been a very good day. A little thought on having a good day. A few days ago. I fed my dog Little Bit and as I was sitting the bowl down, she jumped off the chair and tipped over the bowl, food all over the place. Then we were off to church and the priest that resided over the service seems to feel the need to make everyone feel rather bad about their lives. Then he did a good portion of the service in Latin. Being a convert, the Latin makes no sense to me, so not well received on my part. As my husband and I sat down to breakfast a little later, he laughed and said, "you're having a bad day." I quickly came back and said, "no, no, I'm having a GREAT day!" We can choose to focus on the normal daily occurrences that just go wrong and the people around us that have an agenda, or we can rise above and just smile and say, "regardless of it all, I'm having a great day." Believe me, there are days when what comes at me just seems to be too much, and I slip into a day long pity party, maybe even a few days pity party. Hey, we're all human :) I have found though that when I take a stand and say no, it's going to be a great day, something great always happens.
As I put together this post, I was amazed by how my life has been so richly touched by a number of the ladies whose blogs I have showcased. Most of you I will never meet, but a number of you I know in my heart and I think that's a good second best. I could do a commentary on each and every blogger whom I've showcased this past year, but  rather than my commentary, I hope that you will take a little time to go and discover their blogs and the lovely ladies behind them. Like me, you just might be surprised and find a new friend, or maybe 2 or 3!!
So here they are, the Wednesday Showcase Ladies  of 2014!
