I don’t have time to BREATHE.

But I am grateful for the work.

I don’t have time to EXERCISE.

But I am grateful for my husband who says, “Let’s go walk.”

I don’t have time to PLAY THE PIANO IN THE LIVING ROOM THAT IS RIGHT THERE.

But I am grateful for the opportunity and responsibility to play for choir on Thursday nights, and I am grateful for the times when I am asked to play for the other choirs on Wednesdays and Sundays.

I don’t have time to COOK GOOD MEALS for Dad and Sam.

But I am grateful that there is food in the house, and I am grateful that Sam and Dad can take care of themselves, and I am grateful that Sam helps me by making dinner when I am late.

I don’t have time to go SHOPPING for things I need.

But I am grateful that I don’t need much, and when I do need something, I am grateful that I live in a metropolitan area and can take a few minutes to run a quick errand, and I am grateful for Amazon because it keeps me OUT OF THE BEAUTIFUL AISLES that tempt me.

I don’t have time for FUN.

But I am grateful that my sister keeps asking.
