“Tell me all about your celebrations this week!”
I stared blankly at my friend as they asked me to recount all the wonderful things that have happened the past seven days. He might as well have been speaking in a foreign language. My eyes twitched as my brain shorted out from overheating so early in the morning.
If I were asked about what’s eating my lunch, what’s gnawing at my ankles, what’s punching me in the face… well, I could easily engage in that convo faster than you could spell gratitude.
It was a wake up call.
I need to practice being thankful more. It’s not my go-to as much as it should be, and in reality, I think all of us have more grateful moments than we realize.
For the record, I did eventually come up with a great list. It included good convos, spring sports, and cookies.
Cookies should always make that list.
