I can’t leave off all grumpy-like.
Children healthy and mostly decent.
Diabetic kid’s needs met, at least for the moment.
Husband healthy and more attentive than I deserve.
My own health is top-notch.
Various animals healthy and relatively low-maintenance.
Warm, well-lit home.
Pacific a ten-minute walk away.
Surfboards, wetsuit, booties and gloves.
Tons of friends and a steady stream of social invites.
Awesome boss and coworkers.
Additional enjoyable jobs and lovely colleagues.
Volunteer work engaging and rewarding.
Personal training at Praxis.
Kitchen full of food.
Tulips promising to bloom.
An overflowing bookshelf.
Music for days.
A piano in the house.
A great bike — with panniers!
Most of my problems are self-wrought and therefore theoretically solvable.
And… life continues to surprise me with all sorts of sweet little bonus moments.
All good then?
Oh, you know – always more complexity and challenge than shows up in a list. But the bits of gratitude help with the keep on keeping on side of things. So, um, yeah. All good!
I do know. Good on you for writing your blessings down, I tend to run them through my head and I’m sure it’s not effective. Have a great time over the holidays.
