I've been falling behind with my gratitude. Perhaps it's hard to stick to gratitude or hard for me to just keep a routine going. Here's what brings me joy:
The JC Penny Towel, thanks to Michal for introducing me to them!
Behr Spring Rain---the color of my new room (painting this weekend)
the washer and dryer (filled with laundry right now)
Amanda and FD for a well needed get away last weekend
DP for driving down to be a part of it
My family, for so many things, esp. Uncle Scott's chocolate chip pancakes and their support of my literary happenings
Sarah and her mom for driving down for the reading
Annie for always being there to listen or email me info when I misplace what I shouldn't misplace
my mom for emailing me positive, insightful and often original quotes
My online semester has started and so I'm full of students' writing and remembering when I began, how exciting and scary to begin to take stock of your life and what matters most to you and then to write it down, and gasp, share it with the world, or at least a smaller version of it. I'm grateful for them right now too.
