I am grateful for a laid back weekend.

I am grateful for some time spent outdoors today with kids clambering around on rocks and making grand projects out of kelp and washed up tires.

I am grateful for Cattle Point when the sun is low in the sky.

I am grateful for weather that’s warm enough that when a 3 year old falls in the water and gets wet, he doesn’t get so cold he has to go home right away.

I am grateful to live a peaceful existence in this world, especially in light of recent events in Paris, Beirut, and Bagdad. I take peace for granted in my life. I wish everyone could.
