Gratitude

So we’re back to this.

I’m seriously mentally stuck. Too tired to find a topic, too stubborn to give up.

So what could I address? Many years ago, I learned the importance of taking the time each day to find something new to be grateful for. So how about gratitude for all the past week has brought? I saw my 3-year-old nephew for the first time in over a year. That was a lot of fun, even though he wore me out by insisting on being dragged around the kitchen floor like it was a fun slide. We have sold Trucky (although I’m yet to see the money). I made an excellent Moroccan lamb dish for dinner. We’ve made good progress on the house stuff, and things are moving along again. And there was a car accident outside of Hamilton on Friday night, where two cars were apparently racing each other on the highway before one collided with an oncoming van. Four people died… I’d driven that stretch of road about 20 minutes earlier, on the way home from my parent’s place, so I’m hoping it’s ok to be grateful that I didn’t leave 20 minutes later and end up wearing a Skyline full of kids.

Is that selfish? The fact is that they still died. But I’m thankful that it wasn’t me.

If it’s not too lame, I’m not grateful for anything else as much as I’m grateful for my husband. Just sharing some time cuddling on the couch can make my whole day better.

It’s not a new thing, but it makes every day feel that way, so hopefully there’s a lot more of that to come.
