I’m grateful for all the beautiful places we saw on our road trip back from Texas.

I’m thankful for all the things I get to read while rocking my baby to sleep.

I am grateful that I have a body healthy enough to bear and nourish three children, with something left over to go on long hikes with my girlfriends.

I am thankful for the times when you seem to be working on a problem that has no solution, no end. No one seems to be listening. Suddenly there is a breakthrough. This happened today.

I’m thankful for my internal desire to assign myself projects that motivate and stimulate me, grateful for a time in my life when I have the resources, time and energy to give back and pay it forward, and appreciative of menial tasks because they keep me grounded.

I’m grateful for safe travels this past holiday season.

I’m grateful for my Facebook friends for keeping me connected to the larger world through their activism, their interests, and their passions. Each day they open my eyes to issues around the world, far beyond my own small circle, that warrant my attention and action. And beyond the big issues, each day I am grateful to them for sharing with me their own gratitude for the pleasure and beauty in the small moments that make life worth living - a lovely flower, a sunrise, a smile.

I’m grateful for this truly amazing robot vacuum cleaner that my family got me for Christmas. A clean home is a happy home!
