Gratitude: Not Just For Breakfast Anymore

October 13, 2014 · 9 comments

Here is a short list of what I’m thankful for today, including but not limited to:

Ordinary moments that wash over me with a wave of “I love our life” when I’m not expecting it, like when I catch Winston staring down the door handle in an intense attempt to open the back door through his impressive telepathic powers.

(Also, I’m grateful for opposable thumbs, and for the ability to grow big fat heads of lettuce in the middle of October.)

.. and even old-fashioned email that delivers ground-breaking news.

Fresh and daily:  food, water, mercies, news sources, inspiration, and reminders that I am loved.

Good genes of elegance, graciousness, and wisdom…

Tribal know-how and the opportunity and time to learn it first hand…

… and technology that opens the possibilities for new perspectives…

… including the miracle of being able to freeze a moment in time to enjoy forever.

And I’m thankful for Hank and Erma who coo us gently into the world every morning at whatever time suits their pointy little heads.

Hi. Thank you for theis review of food sealers. I am going nuts trying to find the right one. It’s for my daughter and I want it to be easy yet not expensive. I’m sure the marinade feature would be something she would love. You didn’t mention the price of the model you chose. I’m trying to stay in the area of $150.00. Thanks
