This is going to sound really silly. But I really am thankful for the little things.
Things like a donor bringing in a toy for Santa’s Workshop today. Things like not needing to wash my hair today and bring able to save all that styling time with a few seconds of a flat iron (I really needed to sleep). Things like positive feedback from board members after our retreat. Things like the 4,846 new ideas that sprang up in my head while I slept last night (my secretary is going to kill me!). Things like coming home tonight and saying “I’m tired. Where are you taking me for dinner?” and going without arguing or complaining. Things like finding out that I will be home alone all day tomorrow. I’ve been with people too much this week so I’m looking forward to nobody talking to me for the whole day. Things like leaving work at 5 pm and driving home in semi daylight. Things like the really yummy garlic knots I had with dinner (although I ate too many). Things like Benadryl to provide me a full night’s sleep tonight (I hate drug-induced sleep, but not as much as I hate not sleeping!!!!).
I could go on and on but you get the idea. As crazy and busy as I’ve been, there are still so Kant things to be grateful for.
How about you? What does your list look like?
