A Month of Gratitude -- Day 7

I am thankful for the roof over my head, the food in my stomach, and the clothes on my back.  I am better off than a lot of the people in this world and I should never take that fact for granted.

A Month of Gratitude 2014 -- Day 6

I am thankful for self restraint.  I am thankful that there are moments when I can hold it all together and NOT slap the student who is being an idiot.

A Month of Gratitude 2014-- Day 5

I am thankful for having the privileged to mother this child of mine.  For all the grown up things he wants to do, he is still a cuddle bug and wants to be held and carried, and love on his mama.  After a long day when the To-Do list is still not done, when I am not in the mood to be pulled on and climbed on, I try to remember that these days are fleeting and just to be in the moment with Nate.  He is still little, he won't want to snuggle with his mom for much longer.  I am thankful that he still does and I am trying to hold on to every minute of it.

Today is election day.  I am thankful for being able to be part of the democratic process no mater how flawed I feel that process is.

A Month of Gratitude 2014 -- Day 2

I am thankful to work for an organization that lets me explore my passions and create new projects for myself.  This is how I have worked at the same place for 16 years, when things get stale I start something new... it has proved to be very fulfilling.
