Ah, today I’m not at my best. Not my worst, either. Today I’m not as patient as I’d like to be, and I don’t have the energy I wish I did. It’s okay. These are the days that I need a gratitude list, right?
For this image, by this artist. It really spoke to me.
For this basket of laundry.
For these fish. After getting fish after fish to put in my silly little fishbowl (renamed "deathbowl", because there’s no way those things were meant for fish to actually stay alive in), we put these ones into this aquarium and they are doing quite well, for many months now. 🙂
For these girls, who challenge me and keep me on my toes. Who are so beautiful and filled with wonder, if I remember to look.
For the knowledge that anything good is worth doing, and anything that’s worth doing is worth doing poorly.
For this song, which is so fun to sing in harmony with Jeff while he strums his mandolin. Reminds me of our early days, playing music around a fire…
For a quiet night tonight, a movie to watch, good food and snuggles.
What are you grateful for today?

I am grateful for my family. Tonight is the last performance of my brother Dylan’s band, Los Duggans. And while we are all very sad, I am so grateful I have been able to hear them play for as long as I could, and I am super exited to be there tonight for their last show.
I am grateful my mother was able to find a new job (working as the physician at the Chippewa reservation in the UP) because my folks have been really stressed about financial crap. She really likes it up there.
I am grateful that my brother Travis and I have been able to mend our relationship a bit; we’ve been going through a really hard time.
I am grateful for Shaun who always nags me to eat properly and get enough sleep.
