Small stuff that I am grateful for today: chilly, windy days that just scream for a nice gumbo to warm me up and a cooperative, unsecured interweb signal to make your mouth water.

Bonus: no worries about preparing lunch or dinner for the rest of the week.

Small stuff that I am grateful for today: overcast skies on a 4 hour late afternoon drive to the west when I have forgotten my sunglasses.

Bonus: stopping at the Post Office and finding a new delivery from Netflix.

Double Bonus: arriving home late enough in the evening that I don’t feel all too guilty about slipping in to my pj’s and crawling in to bed to watch said delivery.

Small stuff that I am grateful for today: accepting that it’s alright to just be where I’m at even when I don’t really want to be there.

Bonus: accepting that it’s alright that no one else needs to understand what that means to me except me.

Small stuff that I am grateful for today: Getting the opportunity to work with some amazing folks to use dead trees to protect living trees. Wish I had an opportunity to tell y’all more about this right at this moment, but I am swamped after my trip to the swamp and have many miles to go before I sleep even though the alarm is going to go off in less than 6 hours for a trip to Alabama. But I’m thinking that when I get a little time to share the story behind this, I will be grateful.

Bonus: I got to ride in the super fast boat all day!

Small stuff that I am grateful for today: I did laugh in front of, and with, many somebodies today and wanted to.

Bonus: I even laughed at some inantimate objects including my GPS when it told me that I could not return home in the same mode of transportation in which I began my journey.
