Hello Saturday! I am grateful to be alive this morning, for every breath of air that enters my lungs and every beat of my heart, I am grateful to be here, to have the gift of another moment, for every experience offered up to me – I am grateful. I am grateful for all the delicate, little flowers that show up in our backyard, for all the color and texture that is Spring in Kentucky and being surrounded by it. I’m grateful for my family and my younger sister and her big heart and incredible smarts. I’m grateful for my spouse and her love and support, for all the wonderful neighbors we’ve had and all that we will have, for long walks with a sweet dog who is smart and fun and full of energy and two neighborhood parks nearby, for being greeted every morning by Oscar’s very vocal enthusiasm for the day and soft cuddles and rubs, for heavy dews that spin off the Frisbee when it flies like a pinwheel and the sunlight that makes it all sparkly, for spotting the hawk silently landing on a branch and knowing I was looking at the right place at the right time. I’m grateful for spotting a common garter snake along the path recently that was nearly 3 feet long and the opportunity to marvel at how successful she must be at being a snake in a residential area to live to be that long. I’m grateful for a Universe that provides me with everything I need to be the best me I can be. What are you grateful for today?
