gratitude sunday


gratitude β€” the state of being grateful : thankfulness

On this Gratitude Sunday, I am grateful for:

  • Discovering I had made an error balancing the checkbook and that we actually had more money in our account than I thought (for once!)
  • Finally unpacking the last of the boxes in my office/studio/playroom/den — it’s amazing to finally feel moved in πŸ™‚
  • A relatively quiet work week without any crises, something that has been a rarity the past few months
  • Homemade tomato soup + grilled cheese + freshly baked chocolate chip cookies on a cold autumn day = happiness
  • Making up after a stupid disagreement
  • Having the tremendous good fortune of attending a live performance of Selected Shorts @ Symphony Space in NYC with amazing readings by Gabriel Byrne (!!!), Stockard Channing (who really was extraordinary), and Rebecca Naomi Jones — so inspiring to witness such talent at work (and from the 5th row)
  • Relief after finding my iPhone had been safely returned by some lovely person to the Lost & Found window at the theatre
  • Fun visit from my sister and niece this weekend
  • The generous and sensitive spirit of my niece, who decided to eat in the dining room when the rest of us were in the kitchen because she wanted to keep Bayliss (our geriatric dog who fast asleep in her bed there) company
  • Unpacking forgotten treasures, like the worry stone my friend Chris gave me 12 years ago
  • Remembering Mary Anne, who would have turned 82 tomorrow, Armistice Day — we miss you, dear friend. I never pick up “Irma” from the pile of cookbooks without thinking of you
  • Our wood stove, which has done a super job of keeping us all toasty warm this week, as evidenced below πŸ™‚IMG_1643
