Hello Monday! It’s a no-doubt-about-it winter day in the Bluegrass and I am grateful to be alive and living it! I’m grateful for the brightness of the snow and how clearly I can see the world around me even in the dark of night. I’m grateful for waking early and getting things done, for tidying and preparing for new things, new opportunities, new challenges, for morning’s quiet, morning’s potential, morning’s optimism, for looking forward to what is in front of me, for rewarding work, for having a good time and enjoying myself, for learning, for sharing my journey with my soulmate and for her affections, for healthy, happy fur friends, all the love poems and happy wishes that show up on Facebook on Valentine’s Day, photos of flowers, sharing and all the ways Life says, “YES!” to me and to each of us! I am very grateful. What are your blessings today?
