In general, I frown on such displays of sentimentality, but I must admit it's been good for me. It's caused me to pause and consider what I've been doing, which I think, in turn, has caused me to be more grateful in the moment. I like to think feeling gratitude has also caused me to pause, mid-stride, to appreciate the world more as I'm experiencing it, rather than waiting until the end of the day.
And so, I'd like to share some of the things I'm grateful for. With pictures.
Laughter. We laughed so much at Rio Mesa. There is just a general giggliness around women; something in it conjures up junior high, when to laugh was the easiest thing we could do. Sylvia’s stories about her childhood in the tent; Nicole’s general good humor
What is grateful about a Monday? The endness.
Sleep. Often, it is needed.
Fall weather: I love it when the leaves change and the air is crisp, but yet the afternoon can still be sunny and warm.
Soup! This one does not need explaining.
Trees: they give us oxygen and also when their leaves change: damn! Gorgeous!
And so, friends, in conclusion, I am grateful and I am chronicling my gratefulness each day. Oprah and I recommend it.
