I've had kind of a rough go of it recently.  And it's been made worse by my attitude.  Especially as of late I have been a nasty, ungrateful, green-eyed (and often over-served) B**ch.

I've decided that it's time to take control of this situation (haven't the last couple of years been about empowerment?)

Here's what I'm going to do, every day, once a day between now and Thanksgiving I am going to write down something that I am grateful for.  It can be a person, an experience, a trait of my own or even a material object.  But I'm pretty sure I can come up with at least one thing every single day.  It's time to start viewing my life through rosier colored glasses. 

Feel free to share anything that YOU are grateful for.

Today, I am grateful for my fleece Columbia vest.  While it is not the most fashionable, and I have a tendency to wear it over my work clothes in the office, it provides a sense of security as the days get darker and colder.  It makes me feel warm and fuzzy.  And I'm wearing it right now.

I need to read your blog more often. We are more in synch than I even knew. THese last few weeks have been hard... And I love your gratitude project. Here's mine.

Today I'm grateful for technology. Living away all these years from so many friends and family is made so much richer by technology. Sometimes it is a crutch and sometimes abused. But more often, for me at least, it gives me moments of connection that I worry I might have lost otherwise.

Anyway, grateful for that. And very grateful for you, Ms. Green Artichoke!
