Thanks Be

November 20, 2007 | Category: In My Life

Today I:

Organized the box of 96 crayons (and sharpener!). By color.

Walked the dog in the drizzly rain.

Taught my son to count by 10's. To 1000.

Sorted out his clothes. By season. And size.

Took a long hot shower.

Told my husband I love him. 5 times.

Stopped to sniff my birthday bouquet, which yet blooms.

Planned our simple Thanksgiving dinner.

Unpacked a care package from Iceland.

Yelled at the dog to stop shredding paper.

Daydreamed about what it would be like to be able to afford some nice furniture.


Played a hidden picture game with Bear.

Drank a steaming cup of chai.

Breathed a little, wrote some bad poetry, gave the phone the stink eye when it dared ring.

Discussed country music with the handyman.

What I'm saying?

Is if it all had to end tomorrow...

I'd miss days like these.

It's a damn fine life. Even with all the bad news. And much to be thankful for.

Sometimes the simplest days are definitely the best. And I'm like you, I'll take 'em. All of them.
