I am grateful for this exercise. Some days it’s hard to be grateful. This, right here, gives me reason to take the time and make the effort for gratitude.
I am grateful for my relationship. The truth is that it’s a lot of hard work. Things that are worth it in this life are rarely easy. My relationship with Julie is no exception. This year marks the point when I’ve been with Julie for as long as I was alive without her before. At times, we take each other for granted, but that can’t be sustainable over a long time. Still, it’s nice to know we’re really committed to be in it together; to do what we have to to keep us both happy, and that we fully intend to be together until death do us part, or even longer, of possible.
I am grateful for roasted seaweed from Costco. I just can’t get enough of that stuff.
