We had quite a week. On Friday night, my Jeep was stolen from right in front of our house. We walked out to head over to the Chinese New Year Festival, and the car was gone. Just like that. Reports were filed, claims were made, a car was rented. Now we wait.
So today, I am feeling grateful for so many things.
I am grateful that if someone was going to cause trouble in the night, they took the car instead of breaking into our house.
I am grateful that my family is safe.
I am grateful for family and friends who do not hesitate in offering their support and kindness.
I am grateful for warm days and long walks.
I am grateful for evening sunshine.
I am grateful for my sewing machine.
I am grateful for Thea's laugh.
I am grateful for my holiday gift from my love - a month of weekly soup deliveries from one of our favorite restaurants.
I am grateful for endless opportunities to learn and not only for the skills gained, but also for lessons in personal growth.
I am grateful for meals and walks shared with friends, and for the care taken to ensure there was plenty of yummy food I could eat with my restricted diet.
I am grateful that my life is filled with so much love.
What are you feeling grateful for today?
