One Little Word Blog Hop: October

Good morning/afternoon/evening and welcome to the One Little Word Blog Hop.  The hop is hosted by Margie, is international and has a wonderful 14 participants, all waiting and willing to share their One Little Word for 2012 with you.  If you've landed here from Cheri, welcome.  I'm listed in the middle of the hop, but don't worry if you get lost following the links ~ there's a full list of participants at the end of this post.   
My husband {The Brainy One} chose our word for 2012: enjoy.  Not because he wants us to be frivolous with our lives, but because he wants us to grasp every opportunity, good or bad, that comes our way this year.  This month, Ali suggested that we look at focusing on battles fought or celebrated.  I found the celebration part easy to write about in relation to our word; the battling side of our word, not so much.  
 September had plenty of things to celebrate:
~ birthdays and anniversaries
~ the huge adventure that was Cartagena
~ the approach of Autumn
~ the new school year for The Boy Child
September was not a cause for celebration due to my dealings with the authorities about getting help for The Boy Child.  But it was worth it, because we now know that he's going to get the help he needs and that has made it all worth while. 
If you're moving on with the OLW Blog Hop, then your next destination is Lisa and you can find her here.
But, before you go ... 2012 is also the year of Happy Mail ~ the chance to receive a small parcel in the post, just because. 
There's no catch. You don't have to do anything in return.  See this post, if you'd like to join in. Internationals welcome.
