My father-in-law, the one who died a year before I met and loved his son, used to say that mini victories were better than a sharp stick in the eye.

Find a penny?  Better than a sharp stick in the eye.

Win a small bet?  Better than a sharp stick in the eye.

Here we are, nine years after his death. And life for me, someone he never knew, is so much better than a sharp stick in the eye.  I share my life with his son and his granddaughters.  I have more happiness than should be allowed in a single lifetime.

Oh, and I finished the Two Writing Teachers Slice of Life Challenge 2019.  Better than a sharp stick in the eye.
