I am grateful for:
Teenagers who aren’t too cool to giggle with their mom.
Friends who throw parties. And let me tour their upstairs.
The promise inspired by synthetic Easter basket grass.
Smart people who become business partners.
England Dan and John Ford Coley. And ITunes.
Shoes that fit and look cute.
The ability to take chances.
Writers of books that make me think.
Friends who move to Costa Rica to start a new life.
Being able to express myself.
Kissing a baby’s feet.
The feet in sand, fingers in seawater kind of vacation.
Which I will be doing this week. So, enjoy yourselves in my absence. And remember: it’s hard to be stressed when you’re grateful. List the things you’re grateful for… and it will be just like you’re on vacation, too.
