Today, I am grateful for two years of this blog, for those who have read and still read it, and for the life that has given me so much wonderful stuff to write about. It all started with this post on July 20, 2008.
Today, I am grateful for a sign from Hoover that he is fine and that we will be fine, too. (More on this later.)
Today, I am grateful for slightly cooler weather. I'm trying hard to be content with that and not long for October's crisp temperatures and brilliant blue sky.
Today, I am grateful for the latest installment in the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series. At the end, Precious Ramotswe sums up the lessons her father taught her. "Do not complain about your life. Do not blame others for things that you have brought upon yourself. Be content with who you are and where you are, and do whatever you can do to bring to others such contentment, and joy, and understanding that you have managed to find yourself." Such good advice, yet sometimes so hard to follow, especially where weather is concerned. It's just so fashionable to complain.
What are you grateful for today?
