Gratitude/Happiness List—September 17, 2014
again linking up with Laurel Regan’s Alphabet Salad to share some things that I’m
grateful for and that have made me happy this week.
—To have reconnected with old friends from high school on Facebook, to have met with two of them over the past month, and find that we still “click” together and have so much to talk about.
—Having a reliable, professional boarding place to leave our dog when we go away—even though I always hate leaving her, they make it a little less wrenching by telling me how sweet she is and how much they enjoy having her. (They may be lying, but it makes me feel better anyway.)
—Anticipating the fall restarting of our church book club with a discussion of what may be my favorite book of the year, “The Goldfinch.”
—Discovering a wonderful new tea, Belgian Mint—slightly chocolately and to die for!
—A cozy rainy Saturday night listening to the radio as the Pawtucket Red Sox won the International League championship.
—Being able to run a 5K and coming in second in my age group, thereby winning a prize!
—Having work coming in again after a nearly two-month pre- and postsurgery layoff.
—Having the date set for the closing on the sale of our other house.
