This morning’s sunrise does not define itself by last night’s sunset. – Steve Mariboli

I am grateful for another day to begin again.

I am grateful that the tires held up long enough to get to a tire a shop, just in case there is a problem.

I am grateful for familiar and friendly faces.

I am grateful for the kindness of strangers.

I am grateful for the kindness of friends.

I am grateful for the solitude of a morning drive.

I am grateful for a happy husband.

I am grateful for free air on the side of a Casey’s building.

I am grateful that my husband calls often to check on my well-being but trusts me to be independent and do the hard things alone.

I am grateful for Taco Johns and sweet memories of meals with Mom.

I am grateful for tears just under the surface.

I am grateful for sentimental things and the anticipation of being reunited with them soon.

And I am grateful that my brother appreciated a morning sunrise enough to take a picture and share it with the world.
