Gratitude List

I'm grumpy. A friend suggested a gratitude list. I'm complying.

  1. I'm grateful for my beautiful baby girl. I'm grateful for her feet and fingers and blue eyes and sweet face. I'm grateful for the way her hair smells and for the sound of her laugh and her little voice saying, "Mamamamama." I'm grateful for her kisses.
  2. I'm grateful for the beautiful lunch my husband made for me. 
  3. I'm grateful for chocolate.
