Today I’m grateful for:

  1. A clean, dry, warm house – not dealing with leaky roofs or floods or walls falling down in an earthquake
  2. Baking bread – specifically, spinach and Persian feta
  3. Having a mother who loves to give enveloping hugs
  4. The power to work
  5. The leisure to rest

I’m not in the country, but I quite liked this description of a way of living:

“A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people to whom it is easy to do good, and who are not accustomed to have it done to them; then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, love for one’s neighbor — such is my idea of happiness.”

What are you grateful for today?
