My cold, which has kept me home all week giving me false hope that "tomorrow" will be better, has doubled back and walloped me a good one this weekend. I'm far sicker than I was earlier this week, and the cold has moved into head (well, mostly my throat and nose, which is running incessantly). Therefore, my Gratitude List tonight is dedicated to the paraphernalia that comforts me when I'm miserable like this:
1) I'm grateful for a warm bath, which I can draw without a second thought as to how the hot water was collected, cleaned, treated, and delivered to my house so that I can soak in it until I finally get warm.
2) I'm grateful for Kleenexes, which I use without reserve as I nurse my ever-running and starting-to-get-sore nose.
3) I'm grateful for warm blankets, which I can throw across me to keep me warm as I lay like a log on the couch staring mindlessly at whatever is on the TV.
This whole gratitude thing is getting pretty easy. All I have to do is think about the things that made me the least happy in any given day, then look on the bright side and voila! I've got my list ...
Well, 12 days in that's how it is anyway ... ;)
