As I stop and reflect on today and what I am grateful for, I must say that I am grateful for feeling under the weather. I had the headache-body ache-exhausted thing start up at work today and I came home early. I took a nap and read a book for the afternoon and evening. I sometimes think our body just says "slow down, but if you won't, I will make you". I had to just rest and recharge.
I am also thankful for my oldest son who made a short trip home from college this evening. His professor just defended his dissertation, so my son made him a cake to share in class tomorrow. He is such a thoughtful young man.
My middle son complimented my homemade chicken noodle soup because we had the chicken noodle soup mix and noted that "mom's is a lot better". That was unsolicited, folks!
My daughter tried to teach me a dance to some thun, thun song - I wasn't quite up for that, but it was quite an enjoyable moment.
Really, though, I think that being grateful for the everyday things lets me see the extraordinary in the ordinary.
What are you grateful for today? Nicole
