Hello Wednesday! It’s a breezy morning in the Bluegrass and I am grateful to be alive. I’m grateful for a good night’s sleep and waking early, for my strong, hot coffee, a cat who is determined to curl up on my lap and I’m grateful for purring – what a wonderful way to communicate! I’m grateful for my neighbors and getting to know each other, for laughter and fun and planning. I’m grateful for all the low-tech tools that make my life easier – the shovels, rakes, wheelbarrows and my work gloves. I’m grateful for sweat rags and a strong back and having learned when to quit for awhile and big bottles of cool water and hot showers and being clean again. I’m grateful for my dear spouse and her company and her affection, the best friends in the world and all the ways that love shows up in my life. What are you grateful for today?
