Dear Gratitude Journal :

I’m grateful I can say. “No.” Many people cannot – it’s too difficult. No is a powerful word, a complete sentence, and sets a boundary without discussion. We should all use No more often. I’m grateful for the 30-year-old Crepe Myrtles that surround my home. The most beautiful of trees. And, I’m grateful I’m acquiring a taste for Whiskey. Those brown liquors are potent and quite good.

The end.
