gratitude sunday


gratitude — the state of being grateful : thankfulness

On this Gratitude Sunday, I am grateful for:

  • Telecommuting, especially in winter weather
  • Soup season
  • Phone calls from my brother
  • An awesome Cyber Monday sale at one our favorite venues — managed to score a bunch of half-priced tickets for a few upcoming shows 🙂
  • Also found a bunch of Sartori cheeses insanely discounted at our favorite Mennonite grocery store
  • The arrival of our first Christmas cards from overseas friends 🙂
  • Finally making time to watch the Netflix series Derek — highly recommend!
  • Also finally finding an anniversary gift for James that I know he’ll love (and it’s pottery too, so perfect for a ninth year)
  • Sleeping in past 6 am — which is such a luxury for me considering my peculiar work schedule
  • My husband, who carefully wraps my pajamas around the hot water bottle before tucking under the covers
  • The busyness at the bird feeders outside our kitchen window and trying to decide whether the juncos, wrens, nuthatches, or chipmunks are cutest
  • The wonderful Professor Keim, who many years ago taught me and the other students who fought to get into his popular classes about the politics of southern Africa and the then-imprisoned Nelson Mandela — two great, passionate men who have my greatest admiration and respect
