That headlong rush toward the end of the year, which seemed so far away back in January, is well underway. The turkey hasn’t even been carved yet, but I’ve already seen folks posting that they have finished their Christmas shopping. My house is still boasting its fall decorations, though I will admit I put the outdoor winter decorations up on Saturday. Normally, decorations don’t go up until the turkey is in the oven, but this year I made an exception since rain was in the forecast. I felt very pleased with my decision when I heard rain pelting the windows this afternoon. Glad I decided to skip washing the car too. 🙂
Whatever you may or may not be celebrating, it’s always nice to take a moment to pause for a bit of gratitude.
- I’m grateful to be a part of a great community of writers and to have the chance to reach out to other writers via this blog; it’s something that has certainly made me joyful.
- I’m grateful for my recent day job promotion, which came with a fancy new title and will give me the opportunity to do some truly meaningful work; it’s something that makes me joyful (and maybe a little apprehensive).
- Mostly, I’m grateful for family and friends who, when they don’t drive me crazy, make me joyful indeed.
So, what’s on your gratitude list?
Congrats on the promotion! I’m grateful for many things–family, friends, and a room of my own with sufficient means to allow me to write!
