Dear Gratitude Journal :

The sun went down some time ago, and it is still over 80° outside. I’m grateful that my house has trees around it, and I have AC. There aren’t many cool places to escape to these days. I’m grateful for the ability to bill some extra hours today. A good use of indoor time. And, I’m grateful for a small improvement in our economic numbers. Lots of people are worried. I hope this bit of good news helps to bolster our collective confidence.

The end.
