I am grateful for a phone conversation with an old pal this morning. Whenever I pick up the phone to just chat with someone, I never regret it, yet I do that so seldomly. This time it I had the excuse of wishing him a happy birthday, but I don’t do that often enough. Email, Christmas letters, even family visits don’t compare to the personal connection I get on a phone call.
I am grateful for time spent painting today.
I am grateful for time spent hanging out with my kids this evening and afternoon, and for a chapter of Watership Down at bedtime.
I am grateful for a soak in the hillbilly hot tub with Julie this evening.
