Grateful I woke up at 5 and knocked out a bunch of work emails so I feel less overwhelmed.
Grateful to learn more about how my grandparents need help, and to also hopefully help them.
Grateful to be in my relative youth. As my grandma told me, you have to be tough to be old. And the stories they tell make me really believe it. People having to have their spouses lead them around and tell them how to eat food, people losing control of their bowels, people losing all their friends to old age...
Grateful I got to spend some time with family.
Grateful I will be home tonight and can take my son to the card shop (think Dungeons and Dragons, Pokémon, etc.)
Grateful to be here learning from all of you, including our new Grat Pack members.

Grateful for a solid night's sleep and a quiet dusting of snow when I woke up.

Grateful to have gone down into the canyon with Henry and the object of my affection at dusk yesterday and to light a little campfire and watch the stars come out. I can report that Orion is doing well.

Grateful for a busy week at work.
