Gratitudinous



Today I'm grateful for well-behaved kids and reliable babysitters.

I'm grateful for unending forgiveness.

I'm grateful for a husband who feigns blindness to idiosyncrasies and laughs at dorky jokes against his better judgement.

I'm grateful for that epic Costco bag of dark chocolate in the fridge, and the similarly colossal Winco bag of sour gummy worms in the pantry.

I'm grateful for synthetic running socks and my fuel belt.

I'm grateful for surprise presents.

I'm grateful for E's elbow in my eye every night, even though I pretend like I hate it.

I'm grateful for the shared history that I have with E and some amazing, loyal friends.

I'm grateful for homemade orange-raspberry scones and jars of peach jam.

I'm grateful for Spring Break.  I'm about to be even more grateful, REAL SOON.

I'm grateful for employment, even when that employment frustrates the beheebies out of me.

I'm grateful for my own literacy.  What a gift.

I'm grateful for pedicures.  And beer.  Oh, I'm grateful for beer.  Specially if it's a Hef with an orange in it.  Mmmm...

I'm grateful for paint, music, words and movement.

I'm grateful for towels that bleach to a clean white, and for a fridge full of clean veggies.

I'm grateful for small, everyday kindness.

I'm grateful for cheese.

    Love, S
