See! Even Health thinks Grateful Monday is a good idea. 😉
And with that endorsement, here’s what I am grateful for today:
1. Hot showers – My favorite temperature is approximately 81 degrees Fahrenheit, but paying a heating bill to maintain that temperature in my house would be prohibitive. I am positive, however, that my bathroom hits that temperature when I take a shower. It’s wonderful, and I always feel so refreshed afterward.
2. Flowers from Trader Joe’s – I don’t see the point in shelling out a lot of cash for flowers as a present (unless maybe they are a living plant…and even then, I’m still not sure how I feel about it), but as I’ve said before, I think Trader Joe’s has beautiful, cheery bouquets. My husband surprised me with one tonight as a congratulations-for-completing-your-first-day-of-work present.
3. Basic human kindness – Being new is hard. Change is hard. Facing the unknown is very hard. Aren’t we lucky there are plenty of humans on Earth who are willing to help someone else out, be it via a friendly word of advice, an encouraging text, or even a guided trip to the office supply room? I know I am.
4. Sleep – I am hoping to get some tonight, so I had better finish this post so that I can compete my last final of the quarter and send it in!
