Gratitude for Things Big and Small

I fell a bit behind on my Happy Black Woman reset, and today is hardly the day for me to catch up as I have been in bed sick...after getting a clean bill of health from the doctor just this morning!  But seeing as how I am grateful that whatever this is probably will not kill me (it will just slow me down for a few days), here is a list of 10 other things I am grateful for in my life:
  1. The husband, who came home after a long day and did a load of laundry, baked a cake for someone, and will probably have to sleep on the coach tonight so that he won't catch whatever it is I have.
  2. Health insurance, for after listening to snippets from the GOP debate last night, there but by the grace of God go I...
  3. My friends, because these are the people who have chosen to be in my life, even after getting to really know me.
  4. Family, because they may not have a choice in being related to me, but they have a choice whether to care.
  5. Children
  6. Church folks who plan programs but fail to place limits on the amount of time given to each speaker...although I was beyond tired by hour 3, it was great to see everyone and to hear their reflections.  Next time I'll remember to take a snack though.
  7. Caller ID
  8. Skills that will always enable me to earn a living, or at least be useful.
  9. Compassion for others.
  10. Forgiveness and grace
