So the problem with Thirty Days of Thanks is that it's probably going to get old reading it everyday for a month. Fortunately, most of my friends of Facebook have gummed up the news feed with irate political posts, or pictures of cats doing household chores, so I don't feel so bad about gumming up the news feed with a little gratitude.
Day two of gratitude:
Sunshine. It was 65 and sunny today in Smallville. I took full advantage and I was able to take a few moments on a morning walk and breathe in the sunshine. Leaves were falling. There was a squirrel. It didn't bite my face off. All was right with the world.
Straight Face Wears Doc Martens. You know those really trendy new moms who dress their babies in, well... whatever-the-heck-is-trendy-right-now-and-outrageously-expensive? When Straight Face was a teeny-tiny, I always wanted to put her in a pair of baby Doc Martens, but I could never justify spending that much on a pair of shoes she would outgrow in 3.5 seconds. So I've been waiting for fourteen years for my "baby" to fit into a pair of Docs that I wouldn't cringe at purchasing.
Today, she wore mine to school. Not only was she ever-so-stylish, but they were free!
Silence. Sometimes the only way to prioritize is to find your own silence. Today was that day for me.
What are you grateful for today?
