Today I woke up on the wrong side of the bed, so today’s slice is going to be one of listing little gratitudes to help me refocus my energy into something more positive:
I’m grateful for my fluffy cat,
the way her whiskers twitch
when she sniffs the outside air
from an open window.
I’m grateful for the sunshine.
It’s been such a long, long winter
And I’ve felt so cooped up and antsy these days.
I’m grateful for a morning walk in this sun;
I’m grateful for a nearby coffee shop as my destination.
I’m grateful for a companion
… even if he woke me up too early with his TikTok watching.
I’m grateful for leftovers,
For a delicious veggie kabob recipe,
For the wonders of lemon, garlic, basil, and oregano.
I’m grateful for a tiny outdoor grill.
I’m grateful for good stories
Ones to watch, read, and share,
And I’m grateful for the master storytellers
Who bring us these gifts.
I’m grateful for Slicing,
For the inspiration and kind words,
For being 15 days in and not about to let
Waking up on the wrong side of the bed
