Happy Friday! It is a chilly but gorgeous morning in the heart of the Bluegrass and I am grateful to be alive and soaking it all in! I’m grateful for sleeping in and sleeping well, waking rested and alert and ready for the day, for a golden, sparkly morning to greet me, for looking out at the small plot of earth I call “home” and seeing all the life and activity and daily business teeming there, for inspiration and support and enthusiasm, for being energized and excited. I’m grateful for a delightful evening shared with framily over pizza and ice cream, for laughter and love and kindness and sharing. I’m grateful for the progress my dear spouse is making everyday in her recovery, for her clear eyes, pink cheeks and good humor, for her eagerness to be outside and have her hands in the earth and planning and planting and growing. I’m grateful for a life that is filled with love and support and to have that to rely on when I’m tempted to get caught up by the drama of current events. I’m grateful to know that peace and love and order are all as close as my next thought and my next breath. What are you grateful for today?
