My Gratitude List

In no particular order, here is my own gratitude list for this moment in time. I hope that after reading it you’ll go on to write and share your own!

  • A fun Christmas Eve of cookie baking and decorating, a chicken pot pie dinner, gift exchanging, and movie watching with a good friend. She was our first (and only!) friend when we moved to Windsor three years ago, and we’re thankful and blessed to have her in our lives.
  • The new Turbo Scratcher Cat Toy she brought for Felix and Oscar. It was a perfect choice, and they are having hours of fun with it (as are Peter and I, just watching them play!).
  • A quiet but lovely Christmas Day with Peter including gift opening, a Skype call with my family (including an uncle who was spending the holidays with them), a good long afternoon nap, and ordering in Chinese food for dinner.
  • The internet for many reasons, but specifically this week for being a source of answers to questions like, “What do I do if my sugar cookie dough is too dry?” Google to the rescue!
  • Safety on the roads throughout a ton of time spent to-ing and fro-ing in the car during the holidays. I was particularly reminded of this when stuck in traffic due to an accident up ahead, just a couple of days before Christmas.
  • A plethora of fresh art supplies at my fingertips.
  • A wallet full of gift cards to spend.
  • Enjoying my first week of vacation time, with another one still to come.
