Today I drove over to my friend Tiffany’s (aka @foodfinery) house. On my drive over, my mind was mulling over the many things I needed to accomplish.
My drive home was different. All I could think about was how grateful I am. Grateful for my family. Grateful for my friends. Grateful for good people. And grateful to have everything I need.
Why the change?
Tiffany and I were organizing all of the many items we had received on behalf of The Surplus Project, a semi-annual drive for women and children in crisis. As I dropped off the collected goods, my only thoughts were that I wished I had more to give.
How lucky am I. Sometimes we
forget how truly fortunate we are, especially amidst the noise of the world.
I am grateful. Grateful for Sir Zog and the type of husband and father that he is. Grateful for Baby Zog and his sweet, funny babbling and stair-climbing ways. And grateful for all of you. You make my life amazing.
