Because there’s always something to be grateful for. And also, it’s Tuesday.
Here, I’ll get us started:
I am grateful that I got off my butt tonight and did my run. It was just a 3-miler but I may have procrastinated all day about doing it, I can’t say for sure. But I DID IT. I felt strong, and I didn’t eat a single bug. Also, I’m grateful that I don’t care how fast I run. That way, I can stop and take pictures for you. You’re welcome.
I am grateful for these roasted garbanzo beans* that John made us. Just sea salt and olive oil. Who knew?
*Disclaimer: I call them garbanzo beans. Do you? Or are they chick peas in your neck of the woods? Inquiring minds just gotta know.
I am grateful for the simple pleasures of summer. Like watching little 5-year-olds skipping stones at the beach. Alright, fine, they were hardly skipping them.
I am grateful for watching little 5-year-olds plunking stones into the water at the beach.
I am grateful that Olivia gets to have this guy as her dad:
Yeah, that one. With the unicorn on his head. I’m grateful I get him, too.
I am grateful that photos of animals or people in mid-blink make them look intoxicated. And just to clarify since my own husband didn’t recognize her in such an embarrassing state, this is OUR actual cat, Abby:
Poor, Abby. She’s gonna be hurtin’ in the morning.
I am grateful for Red Vines. Yes, all you black licorice lovers, I realize that technically it’s not really “licorice” but I’m not here to judge. Also, I’m grateful that Olivia can’t read yet because I’m going to tell you right now that this package was hers and I ate all of it.
Last but not least, I’m grateful for Family Game Night with these characters:
On tonight’s to-do list? Possibly, eat a fudgesicle.
What are you grateful for? I’d love to hear from you!
