I missed three days, mostly because I had nothing really groundbreaking or poignant to be grateful for. I’m always quite grateful that I haven’t yet had to worry about hunger or homelessness in my life, but part of the reason I do this every November is to notice blessings I’m overlooking in my life.
It’s in everyone around me, hearts failing us all for various fears, and I don’t know how to fix it.
So I’m not quite sure what to be grateful for these days. That I had Alexia waffle fries and only Alexia waffle fries for dinner? Yeah, that didn’t hurt. That I came home from school today with enough energy to clean so I don’t have to do it tomorrow? Sure. That I’ve watched three college basketball games this week? Yep, I love me some college ball. That I have just two days of school next week? Absolutely, I’m grateful for that.
And maybe for tonight, that’s enough.
