today is a doozy!! a fourteen hour doozy!! i literally have about a 20 minute window in which to write a blog post for today. so here it goes:
my friend Patrick gave me the idea to think about the things i'm grateful for. i know sometimes lists aren't the most fun to read, but he reminded me that taking five minutes out of your day to focus on what makes you happy, can truly be a game changer. to me, it is the perfect way to find a calm place in the midst of the frenzy of this day.
i am grateful...
for my health, my family's health
for my job, my husband's job
that i have the flexibility to run out and meet up with two old friends for coffee
for my creative spark that is rekindled every Fall
for phone calls
for my body, for the calm that exercise has brought to my life
for strangers who have become friends
for reading time with jack
for dinner around the dining room table, even if it's only a few nights a week
and i'm grateful for you. yes, you.
