It's about time for a gratitude list, no? I'm thankful for . . .
:: My mom. She visited us for four days, which necessitated a much-needed overnight getaway for Adam and me. She and I also shopped, watched too much HGTV, sat beside Lily's pool, and talked a lot. It was good.
:: Mom's Day Out. Lily is spending her Monday and Wednesday mornings this summer at a church down the street so I can relax and do a little writing. So far, this is very good.
:: Work. I'm grateful for my paid writing gigs and for teaching in fall. I have two sections of Comp 2, which I've never taught. No worries, though, since I have Monday and Wednesday mornings free to prepare. (wink)
:: The reading bug, which has bit me again. Currently reading: Lit by Mary Karr
:: My lovelies. (If I didn't mention them, it wouldn't mean I wasn't grateful for them, would it?)
:: Knowing full well that the days are long but the years are short, and to rest in the moment even when the moment seems unbearable.
