Dear Gratitude Journal :

I spent a lot of time driving yesterday, and I’m grateful for the green hillsides, the purple Columbine, and the orange gazania that sprinkle the freeway medians. I’m grateful for the newly forming leaves on the Crepe Myrtles, and the spiking irises. #anticipation. And, I’m grateful for perspective. No matter how annoying or difficult today’s problems are, it was much worse 50 years ago.

The end.
