today's gratitude - though i'm grateful for the convenience i have to live my life to my expectations, i'm also grateful that i recognize this and am trying to live "slower" with more deliberance and gratitude about what is not convenient. like the time it takes to cook a meal instead of buying a meal, the time it takes to make cookies for the cookie swap, the sitting down to write a handwritten letter to a soldier. this year, as i'm trying to put more "service" into my life - let me also be grateful for the ease i have in my life. there are many that are not as lucky as i am and wish they could overcome their hardships to have a better life. let me be truly grateful for that and the roles of others that have contributed to that for me.
today on my i-pod - hanging by a moment (lifehouse), breakin' me (jonny lang), runaway train (soul asylum), save me (aimee mann), feeling good (nina simone), let's stay together (al green)
