So many great, little things in life I too often take for granted. Here’s a few that come to mind today:
Paid under $19 for a full tank of gas tonight. Never thought that would happen since 9/11… unless I had a motorcycle.
A nice picture from the daddy-daughter dance. Usually with bright lights I squint my eyes but this year’s pic from the dance looked really nice. TL had it framed when I came home. The Tribe asked if we were getting married. How can you have kids and not laugh?
Reading. I love to read. Love it! This may borderline on superstition but I know that if I don’t get a little reading time in with a great book, my day the next day won’t go as well as it would have if I get my reading in. No real way to prove that without cloning or parallel universes. But I have a hunch.
The people I work with. I take this for granted like breathing air. They are incredibly talented and sincere people. When I arrive at work I’m usually taking off my seatbelt while parking my car and opening my door to get out. That’s a good sign.
The sump pump. Ever since the flood this Fall, I’ve been wary of the pump taking a vacay again. So far, so good.
A really great Field Notes pencil. Need I say more?
Having a conversation with my 4yo son on the way to school. We inevitably talk about dragons and which ones we might be able to train.
I could go on and on. That’s another thing I’m thankful for.
