I'm writing a weekly post to express gratitude for everything I have been blessed with in my life. Will you join me in sharing just five things you are grateful for this week?
This week I'm grateful for:
Chatting with friends: Last weekend I was able to see a few of my friends (in real life) that I haven't seen for a while and as always, I'm forever grateful to have those wonderful adult moments.
Dunkin Donuts gift cards: When I was in graduate school, there was a Dunkin Donuts on campus so my father would get me gift cards so I could buy myself tasty items between classes. Not having given this institution my patronage much since then, I still retained those cards and was able to use the remainder of them to buy a friend of mine some coffee and a muffin (and a chai for myself). I'm grateful to have kept them so long and to have been able to use them for someone other than myself.
The Universe: Even though it's messing with my mind, I feel like I might actually be moving in the right direction right now and I'm grateful for everything that is in store.
My Teaching Philosophy: This is something that is driving me nuts, so like I normally do when things are bothering me, I am declaring that I am grateful for it. I'm grateful for what I've already written, what I will continue to write and what the finished product will be (because it will eventually be a finished albeit work-in-progress product).
Dogs: I love dogs. I can't wait until I have one again. (Technically, I can because I decided that I would not have a dog until both my children are potty trained and even then I will have to make the decision based on whether or not I want the added responsibility, but the idea that somewhere in the future I might have an awesome dog is very pleasing to me.) I am glad that dogs exist.
