Attitude of Gratitude

March 10th, 2020 is the day I moved to my home office for work.

255 days.

When I “checked in” for quarantine in preparation for the Covid-19 threat passing, I had no idea how much my life needed this disruption to remind me who I am as a human.

One of my “best practices” I’m making time for is to write down three things every day for which I’m grateful. I have had dark days where the only thing on my “grateful” list was that the sun had risen. I also have days where I can’t stop at three.

Today, as we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, I ask you to choose ONE thing you are grateful for and share it with me.

I’ll give you MY three to get you started:

  1. I’m grateful my teenage girls get to watch me balancing work/life (or not) so they have a realistic picture of what it takes to be a working woman.
  2. I’m grateful for the new round of Covid-19 memes because they are so spot on and I need to laugh. This is the list that hit my inbox today.
  3. I’m grateful I get to hug my mom today.
