Hot, But Grateful

Yeah, it’s hot.

sunIn my part of the world, it’s 102 degrees hot right now, on its way to 108.  Our air conditioner is starting to have a hard time keeping up, but I’m still grateful that we have air conditioning.

In fact, I’m grateful for many things today. I’m grateful for my friends and family. I’m grateful for my health.  I’m grateful for all of you who have bought and read one of my books.  I’m grateful for internet access and the technology that lets me do my work so much more easily than in the past.

I’m grateful for the smiling face of my son that I just saw a moment ago as he peeked over the top of his computer monitor just as I was peeking over the top of mine. Moments like that are truly precious.

I’m grateful that I get to work at home where I can see my husband and son all day, every day. My husband is now working from home, too, so we a re doubly blessed. Even though my older son is far away, I’m grateful that he’s happy and safe.

I could go on and on, but I won’t. My complete gratitude list is very, very long.

Just because everything doesn’t seem perfect doesn’t mean there isn’t much to be grateful for, and it certainly doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t be happy.

Yeah, I’m hot, but grateful.
