I'm grateful to wake feeling extra playful. It's FRIDAY and while that doesn't mean the same to me as it does to the Monday to Friday work crowd I'm still excited to celebrate.I'm grateful, and excited, to have fun plans tonight! I'm grateful for friends that share my love for play! I'm grateful for one friend in particular this morning as it is her birthday! I'm grateful for the nearly 20 years we have know each other and all the funny stories we have shared. I'm grateful that tonight we are going to be celebrating her birthday by playing outside the box and going skating! I'm grateful for the comedy that is sure to pursue tonight out on the rink and I hope she has a wonderful birthday! There is so much to celebrate every day and if you come from a large family like me there are lots of birthdays and celebrations. I'm grateful for all the people in my life and the unique ways they play. I'm grateful to not only be in a playful mood but to have the opportunity to play this evening. I'm grateful for the silly squirrel in the picture that I met as I hiked around Utah and the chuckle he gave me as he appeared to be plotting to take over the world! "Are you thinking what I'm thinking, Pinkie?" Haha, why yes, but how will I be able to drive to work if I already have my skates on? May today's laughter be contagious and may it shower you with j
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
