Happy Friday everyone! It feels good to say hello to you all, especially since I’ve been home with the flu for about a week. It came on slowly, then quickly, and has me a bit set back with my life and work plans (including having to cancel my own birthday and bon voyage party). But even in the midst of all this, I have so much to be grateful for. And I’m so aware of how much love and support is around.

It’s Friday, the day where we all get to come together on this blog and say the things we are grateful for. It’s so easy to be in our heads and worry about what’s not going right, or what we don’t have, and this exercise is the opposite of that. There are always things to be grateful for. Let’s share.

TGIF everyone! Try Gratitude…It’s Friday. I’ll go, then you go.

I’m grateful for:

Good health. Health insurance. My family who bends over backwards to help when I’m sick or in need. Home-cooked meals from my sister. Puppy love. Tap class. Waking up early. In person get togethers with old friends. Text catch ups. A nice long walk. Good movies. Dexter in my Netflix queue. Looking forward. Reminiscing. My funny friends. Just being. Introspection. Wit. Wonder. My upcoming mani/pedi and hair appointment. Sunshine. The smile on my dog’s face when he plays catch. Learning. Shantastical. Inspired ideas. Dreaming of what my new apartment will look like all decorated. People who want to make a difference in the world.

Now it’s your turn. Leave a comment on the blog with all that you are grateful for today. TGIF!!

Before I got sick, my mom, sister and I went to tap class.
