Today I am grateful for the ability to look for little things that bring me joy. Today is a day of debilitating physical pain. Sadly it started last night and didn’t let up. So my goal here is to just make a list of small gratitudes.
I am grateful for the hot, hot shower I started my day with. It gave me a little relief.
I am grateful that an administrator was genuinely concerned that I was in pain.
I am grateful that my students sensed something was off and were extra special good and even made me laugh.
I am grateful that I was able to come home early and take some strong medication that helped me nap.
I am grateful that my spouse knew I wasn’t well and after his errands he brought home an individual pizza and a salad for me. (without my asking)
I am grateful that my friend and I chatted and shared about our day.
I am glad I got to listen to a SARK call tonight. (I really enjoy them)
I am glad my students have a group activity tomorrow so I might be able to do some of the work I brought home and didn’t do tonight.
I am grateful that even though I canceled an appointment tonight, I will be OK.
I am grateful that my pain level has lessened a little and hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.
