long calls with close friends living far away

finding all the ingredients for slow-cooker lamb shanks, already in the house

my 14th month without credit cards

slow time with Eric to connect and enjoy one another

seeing that abundance is least of all a financial thing

my blessedly good memory for learning things quickly

generous parents and soon-to-be-parents-in-law who lovingly give time, money and other resources to the next generation

camellia trees blooming off the back porch

my sister’s spiced coffee

opportunities to shine

dreaming of this summer’s backyard vegetable garden

sweeping aside the fear and opening to the learning

What are you grateful for?
