What Are You Grateful For?

Sometimes it pays to take a minute to count your blessings. Despite a bad day every now and again, there are always occasions to smile. Here are some of the things I’m grateful for today.

  • Mom’s recipe book – Today I tried my hand at a tortellini pasta salad that my mom makes and it turned out wonderfully. Perfect for a picnic dinner while out in nature.
  • Modern technology – When your family is spread over three states and 1000 miles, you develop a keen appreciation for all the things you can do at the touch of a button. Hearing their voices over the phone always brightens my day. 
  • Sunshine – After a long day in the over air conditioned office, nothing feels better than stepping outside into the thick midwest summer air. 
  • Photographs – I love combing through the family photo albums on my coffee table and seeing all the people who have come into my life. I can almost see the people in the pictures shuffling into place to pose for the camera. It’s like witnessing the living portraits at Hogwarts.
