today’s grace, 6/26/17

Hey loves.  As part of the Kelly course, we’ve been tasked with starting a gratitude practice, and I’ve decided to share mine here every single day.  Feel free to share all the things you’re grateful for today in the comments or do your own. ❤

Today, I am grateful for:

  • Mornings where I wake up surrounded by cats, and where the day ends with me surrounded by cats.
  • Lots of purr-y Rilly cuddle time today. The very best thing that happened today.
  • Waking up feeling semi-rested, despite getting to bed later than I wanted. (As always).
  • Books.
  • The ability to use my lifelong skills to help other people.
  • Mint Milano cookies.
  • Crab cheese wontons.
  • Rice
  • Aromatherapy.
  • Air conditioning.
  • Blankets that aren’t too warm, but perfectly snuggly.
  • Technology that actually worked without lots of fixing.
  • A quiet day of few phone calls and no crises.
  • Somehow saving a candidate who we were sure we lost.
  • Great coworkers who have my back and take time to ask me how my day is going–and actually mean it.
  • Fun convos with my coworkers about Brett Dennen and who introduced the zombie plague into our FL office.
