3 years ago

Happy Father's Day to my smart and wonderful dad! You are number one on my gratitude list today for so many reasons, topped by your unfailing strength of character and personal ethics. Thank you for setting such a great example for me - I am grateful I can call you Dad.

My Gratitude List

In no particular order, here is my own gratitude list for this moment in time. I hope that after reading it you'll go on to write and share your own!

  • Knowing how to drive, and the freedom and flexibility that comes with it.
  • Owning a car and having no car payments.
  • Finding out after consultation with a specialist that I most likely won't have to have an old root canal redone after all.
  • Narrowly avoiding a bad travel booking situation, which led to me finding a better (and fairly reasonable, all things considered) flight to San Jose for BlogHer '14.
  • Peter having the opportunity to work at the polls during our recent provincial election.
  • Getting things done!
  • Having access to Freegal Music via our local public library.
  • Our kind neighbour from across the alley who walked all the way around the block late in the evening to knock on our front door and let us know we'd left our garage door open.
  • The gorgeous ivy growing on our house and camouflaging the block walls.
  • Celebrating a year of tangling.
  • A perfect summer Sunday morning with a light, cooling breeze blowing through my open office window.
