It seems like the gratitude postings are about all I have time for these days. When I started this blog, I really didn’t think those would be the dominant post, but then that’s the beauty of existence: you always end up miles from where you expected.
Today’s list of things I’m grateful for:
Pain. It lets you know when there’s something very wrong with your body. For example, we have gone to an exercise class two nights in a row, and I now need to leverage myself against the coffee table in order to stand up. That works fine when I’m near the coffee table; it’s less helpful when I’m in another room entirely. This pain is telling me I should never, ever, do two of those classes back-to-back again.
Sunny days. Perhaps that sounds corny, but I’m okay with it. To me, it’s therapeutic to take a few minutes out of my day and walk along the waterfront while the sun ricochets off the waves. I feel decidedly less stressed at the end of it.
Everyone who visits this blog. It’s nice to write something that you know is being read, so thank you for visiting.
