January 6, 2012, Friday, I am grateful for:

Kat McLain for telling me to tear up the check I had written to her for Thomas visiting her two days this week . . . and telling me to write it for one day and to give it to her when I could.

Date days with Lillian.

Dr. Rick Winkelman, the optometrist who gave me samples to last me until I can come in for my annual check up in February.

The cashier at Walmart who told me not to worry about it when she accidentally input that I had given her $36 for my $34 dollar bill instead of $31. I was going to put the rest on my debit card; but couldn’t because she incorrectly put in the $36 instead of $31. I even offered my business card so they could contact me so I could pay the difference and they said no.

Hugs from Thomas.

Hearing Thomas and Lillian laugh.

Our house.

Days with no appointments, no school buses and just plain nothing to do.

Nature.

Movie night with my kids.

Being asked by Thomas and Lillian to tickle them before bed and the fun and laughter that follows.

Quiet.
