Gratitude Journal #104

Today, I am grateful to the families and friends of victims of the 9/11 attacks for allowing us as a nation to collectively share in their grief and remembrance. I hope they understand how much love and support they have from perfect strangers all around the world and that it brings them some bit of comfort.

Today, I am grateful for taking Daisy on a walk at the park...her first since March. Poor thing. Her next surgery is scheduled for the first week in October.

Today, I am grateful for Pastor Suzanne's sermon yesterday. She must have had me in mind when she wrote it. But then, it often seems that God speaks through others when we need it most. His timing is perfect; we just need to pay attention.

Today, I am grateful for friends who gather for coffee. Our coffee group finally resumes meeting this week after a long summer of kids. Can't wait to hear what the ladies have to say!

Today, I am grateful for my friend Nancy, who ate lunch with me on Friday so we could catch up on what's happening with our children on the autism spectrum and life in general.

Today, I am grateful for quality medical care. My father-in-law is back in the hospital as of last night. If you pray, please keep Roger in your prayers.

Today, I am grateful for fingertip band-aids.

Today, I am grateful for long phone calls with loved ones far away.
