Ok, I just got my first ever ticket this evening. A speeding ticket. So, I think this is a good exercise for me to partake in since I'm not feeling particularly grateful. Here goes....
I'm thankful . . .
that I have a happy, healthy family
that my traffic ticket was just a traffic ticket and not an accident or anything truly terrible
that my wonderful friend Julie came to my aide to step in as baby sitter while I was getting my speeding ticket (trying to get home fast to relieve the baby sitter who had to leave; go figure)
for beer - I wish I had wine right now, but I'll take the beer
that my son went to sleep easily tonight so that I can relax and attempt to unwind
