Happy Monday! Happy first day of the work week! I am grateful to be alive on this beautiful day. I’m grateful for the chill in the air reminding me of the warmth to come, for the clear morning sky, the quiet stillness. I’m grateful to return to work today and my eagerness to get at it, to get things started and get things completed, to ask questions and get answers, to contribute and participate. I’m grateful for planning parties and vacations and adventures and meals, watching playful little squirrels carrying walnuts as big as their heads in the mouths effortlessly, for my three feline companions and their great fun chasing each other around the house, for my wife and a slow walk down the street yesterday, her seal of approval on the garden’s progress and her enthusiasm for spring and being outside. I’m grateful for my morning coffee, clean drinking water, access to healthy food, a body that loves to move, a mind that loves to reason and solve and think and a heart that loves to love. What are you grateful for today?
