Attitudes of Gratitude – October 1, 2014

Today I am grateful for…

…fall..my favorite time of the year.

…my dad – William Franklin Wade.  Even though he died when I was only 14, I will always be “daddy’s girl.”     He taught me so much in such a short time.  I am forever grateful for his love and guidance.  He would have been 95 today.  I wish he would have been able to know his three beautiful granddaughters…  He would have teased and loved them so much…

…complex, meaningful, autonomous work (reading Gladwell’s The Outliers for a second time) that has a direct connection between effort and reward.

…my ability to persevere.  It is the best of me and the worst of me, but I’m ok with that.  Perhaps someday I will learn moderation.

I am blessed.  You are too.

Attitudes of Gratitude – September 9, 2014

Today I am grateful for..

…friends who provide support.

…a beautiful Saturday to sit outside with Bella and finish a book.

…an almost perfect opening Sunday in the NFL.  My Bears lost badly, but Kate and Trevor spend the day with me, so that more than made up for it.  We chilled and watched football all day…and oh yeah, they brought and then cooked tummie yummies!

… an easy Monday to slide into the week.

I am blessed.  You are too.
