Today, I am grateful for laughter in all its manifestations, from gentle chuckles to belly laughs to laughter that is silent and so uncontrollable that it leaves you with a face full of tears and snot. Did I ever tell you about the time I was reading Bridget Jones's Diary in a coffee shop in Rapid City, South Dakota? I started laughing so hard I knew it looked like sobbing, so I held the book up so the strangers in the coffee shop would know that I was reading a funny book and not having a mental breakdown.
Why do we care what strangers in coffee shops think?
Today, I am grateful (once again) that George enjoys cooking because the following picture from Pinterest is so very me.
Yes, of course. But sometimes I wish it were going to happen. I mean, who wouldn't want Owl Post (Harry Potter) and friendly dragons taking you wherever you wanted to go in a few seconds (Anne McCaffrey's Pern series)?
Today, I am grateful for yesterday's sermon at church. Rejoice in the Lord always. Paul wrote this to the Philippians from prison. From prison, people! If he could muster up a positive perspective while awaiting the possibility of martyrdom, I can muster one for Jack's medication situation and for our new house dilemma. Rejoice, indeed.
What are you grateful for today?
