I Might Be Back.


Remember me?

I used to write things here occasionally.

And then I stopped.

I’m not sure why, to be honest. Didn’t make the time, was too sad, didn’t feel inspired, felt too inspired–you name it, I had an excuse.

But like the swallows to Capistrano and the cranes to Kearney, I’m here on November 1, compelled to write about gratitude for another month.

And today, I find myself grateful for so many things, but especially grateful that I can write. Grateful for new months and the chance to recalibrate goals and expectations. Grateful I still have an avenue to publish my writing to tens of readers.

It’s November. Hold off on Christmas for a week or two, and identify one thing you’re grateful for. If you feel so compelled, share it in the comments.

I’ll be back here tomorrow, and I hope, most days this month to write a little more about gratitude. It’s tradition. And this time of year, tradition counts for something.

  1. I’m grateful for you. Totally serious. Even though we are so completely different from on some issues that I drive you to swearing (don’t deny it…I know it’s true) I know you will still love me once the steam stops coming out of your ears. And I love you. And I’m grateful for your writing. I’ve missed it.

  2. I’m grateful for every night I can go to sleep knowing my children and husband are safe and sound, and all in good health.

  3. Julie I love you and you are writing. It always puts life in perspective for me. Today I am grateful for Pedialyte, Gatorade, clear soda, soup and crackers. Mia and I woke up with the stomach flu 🙁

  4. That THIS isn’t it. Life here. Broken bodies. Heartache. None of this is “it”. There’s so much more to come. I’m grateful for a lot less heavy stuff too, but today, I’m grateful that this life isn’t all there is.
