Hello my Slicer Friends. I hope you are well and safe and finding ways to get through these days.
I have been thinking about all that has stopped, all that is different, all that is lost.
But really, there are so many things to be grateful for at the moment. Here is my list:
-I am grateful that I feel well and healthy, grateful that I was able to exercise this morning and prepare myself a delicious and nutritious breakfast with food in my house.
-I am grateful that all my loved ones are feeling healthy and well.
-I am grateful for a comfortable home with enough food, drinks, and yes, toilet paper.
-I am grateful for my cup of coffee this morning.
-I am grateful for electricity, hot showers, running water and technology.
-I am grateful for online communities like #TWT and #SOL to feel connected.
-I am grateful that I am still getting paid and am not experiencing financial distress
-I am grateful that I have books to read.
-I am grateful that spring is upon us and we can get outside
-I am grateful for slower mornings
-I am grateful for my third grade friends and colleagues who make collaborating stress-free as we come up with a plan for our students.
While I am not at all grateful for Covid-19 and the pain it is causing the world, I can choose my mindset in all this. Feeling the gratitude helps me to remember all that I have right now and puts me in a better state of mind.
What are you grateful for today?
