Diana tweeted (@dianabauer) asking "What are you grateful for in you life" and linked to her blog, Creative Structures, and this specific post, Gratitude Friday, hoping to inspire others to write what their grateful for. And I'm always up for some good gratitude, so you know I'm doing it.
Let's get the first two biggies out of the way:
I am incredibly grateful for all my friends and family who through their love and support saw me through the most challenging period of my life.
and with that, I'm grateful to be alive.
But this specific morning I'm also grateful for:
My Keurig, that makes me only wait 3 minutes for a cup of coffee while the larger pot is brewing.
The nice weather we're supposed to have tomorrow for our morning training walk.
The sun shining.
The farm market being open today.
Sleeping well last night.
Having the excitement of an upcoming trip.
Having the long range plans of several trips.
The deer that visited last night (not to mention the bunny rabbit, though it drove Fala crazy).
Sammi reading 10 more pages in her summer reading novel yesterday, without me having to nag her.
The running store down the road where I must go to purchase good socks and maybe some better sneakers too.
Okay - that's a good start for now. Thanks Diana for the idea!
Oh, and I'll be ever so grateful if someone reminds me to do this again next Friday!
