Where you'll find everyday magic

Today I'm linking up with the lovely Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. It's where whoever loves words, silences the inner critic and writes on a prompt for five minutes straight. Not fretting over being perfect. Won't you come on over and join in? Today's prompt is reach.

I’m not at all sure how we all got connected at first. But, about two months ago or so, a new friend on Twitter that had recently connected with me, (I believe through the Brene Brown online e-course), suggested that a group of us, who had done the class, start something called "62 Days of Everyday Magic". 

For the next 62 days, or two months, we would post a pic each day on Twitter of something that we saw in our everyday lives that made us think of everyday magic.

The idea was to be able to take the time to see the magic all around us each day. 

Special moments. 




It’s been so neat to see what the group has posted each day.

Such beauty.

But, for me, the everyday magic has come from something entirely different that I really didn’t expect from this exercise. 

Oh, I thought it was a great way to start exercising more gratitude in my everyday life. And, that it has done.

What I mean, though, is that I didn’t expect friendships to necessarily form from this 62 days.

But, that’s exactly what has happened.

As we’ve seen each other’s lives in photos and 140 characters a day, and comments on each other posts, friendships have formed. 

Love has been shared. 
Encouragement offered on bad days and good days.

Who would have thought that friendship could reach around the globe though a simple photo and 140 characters a day? 

I have to say this has been one of the biggest of unexpected blessings!

Thanks for stopping by, and may you see the magic in every day!



  1. I can so relate to this, Anne. That photo challenge of mine has done the same thing for me. We call each other cyber friends. They are some of the best. It made me smile to read this. So happy you've discovered the same blessing.

    1. Thanks for your comments, Lisa! I forgot about your photo challenge! Yes, I am sure that is a similar blessing! Isn't this fun?? Blessings to you!
