Today, I am grateful for continued healing for those whom I love.
Today, I am grateful for a sunny forecast this week.
Today, I am grateful for laughter, friends, and furry dogs.
Today, I am grateful that Family Fun Night is over. It's an event our elementary school PTO sponsors every year that our younger son starts anticipating in the fall and asking about.

I'm grateful it's over for another year. I'm grateful for the volunteers who make Family Fun Night possible. I'm grateful that after an hour, Jack announced, "I'm all funned out." And we left. So very grateful.

What are you grateful for today?
