Sentence a Day: June 2017

June was another busy month as my quarter wasn't over until the 30th. But I made a real effort to focus on the positive despite still being quite sick and overwhelmed at times. There was certainly something good in every day, and we did quite a few fun things, which I'm very thankful for.

I first joined Sarah and Leslie in writing one sentence a day in January, and this is my sixth sentence-a-day post. You can read my January sentences here, my February sentences here, my March sentences here, my April sentences here, and my May sentences here.

Question: What were your highlights in June? Are you going to join us this month and write one sentence a day? There is still time to catch up and write one sentence a day for each day in July.  It’s lots of fun to look back at the month; I promise.

Be well,
